Tenure-Track Research Positions in Computer Science at UBC

The University of British Columbia invites applications for multiple 
tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor in the 
Department of Computer Science on the Vancouver Campus. Â We are seeking 
candidates of outstanding scientific talent in one of the following 
areas: Algorithms and Complexity, Human-Computer Interaction, Machine 
Learning, or Computer Vision. Exceptional candidates in other areas of 
computer science are also invited to apply. UBC Computer Science 
(www.cs.ubc.ca <http://www.cs.ubc.ca/>) ranks among the top departments 
in North America, with 54 tenure-track faculty, 200 graduate students, 
and over 1800 undergraduates. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2016.

A PhD in Computer Science or a related area is expected. We seek 
applicants who have shown evidence of high potential and who have 
demonstrated research success through an outstanding research track 
record, including multiple full-length recent publications in the top 
international conferences and journals in the target research areas. 
Applicants should provide evidence of the impact of these publications, 
and are also encouraged if applicable to report on software and other 
artifacts that are connected with them. The successful candidate will 
develop and maintain an internationally recognized research program. The 
successful candidate will also be expected to effectively supervise 
graduate students, collaborate with other faculty members, obtain 
external funding, teach computer science courses for undergraduate and 
graduate students, and actively participate in departmental activities. 
The potential of an applicant's research program to complement and 
extend the existing research strengths of the department will be an 
important factor in selection.

Applicants must submit a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, 
and the names of at least three references. The teaching statement 
should include a record of teaching interests and experience. 
Applications may be submitted online at 

The website will remain open for submissions through the end of the day 
on January 31, 2016. The website may remain open past that date at the 
discretion of the recruiting committee. All applications submitted while 
the above website is open will be considered.

UBC hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to equity and 
diversity within its community. We especially welcome applications from 
members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal persons, persons 
with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender 
identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage 
productively with diverse communities. All qualified candidates are 
encouraged to apply. Canadians and permanent residents of Canada who 
successfully meet the criteria for excellence through the application 
and interview processwill be given priority.

One of the successful candidates may be invited to apply for a Canada 
Research Chair Tier II, details about which can be found at 
http://www.chairs.gc.ca. Canada Research Chairs are subject to review 
and final approval by the CRC Secretariat. CRC positions are open to 
individuals of any nationality; offers will be made in accordance with 
Canadian immigration requirements associated with the Canada Research 
Chairs program.
