The University of British Columbia invites applications for faculty 
positions in Computer Science including Vision for Robotics and Robotics.


The Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia 
(Vancouver) invites applications for up to 6 positions to be filled at 
the ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Full 
Professor. UBC Computer Science (www.cs.ubc.ca) ranks among the top 
departments in North America, with a strong record of excellence in 
research and in graduate and undergraduate teaching. The anticipated 
start date is July 1, 2017, and is subject to budgetary approval.

A PhD in Computer Science or a related area is expected. Applicants must 
have a record of research and teaching commensurate with the rank. 
Applicants for the rank of assistant professor must demonstrate evidence 
of research success, including multiple full-length recent publications 
in top international conferences or journals. At the level of associate 
professor, applicants must demonstrate sustained and productive 
scholarly activity. Applicants for the rank of professor must have 
additionally attained distinction at the international level.

Successful candidates will develop and maintain an internationally 
recognized research program and will 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 at the appropriate level for their rank will be an important 
factor in selection. The teaching and research needs of the department 
will also influence 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

Full consideration will be given to submissions received by the end of 
the day on December 1, 2016. Applications past the deadline may continue 
to be considered as long as the submission website remains open.

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 process will 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 
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.chairs.gc.ca&d=DgICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=xWLnKrHZf3MpC8FIU9OXrkXau_38u6aRpNtBO0ZlLLs&s=Naq5YXfHzLtgXG4j8dcJQNVqgyKTg45V4MfyeacQujQ&e= . 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.
