Tenure Track Faculty Positions - Research Stream

The Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia 
is inviting applications for up to 4 positions at the rank of Assistant 
Professor.  We invite applications from all areas of computer science, 
with one of the primary areas of focus being in computer systems, 
broadly construed.  One position at a higher rank could be considered 
for an individual with exceptional qualifications.

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, 2019, and is subject to budgetary approval.
A PhD in Computer Science or a related area is required. Applicants must 
demonstrate evidence of research success and a high potential to be 
leaders in their research field. Successful candidates will develop and 
maintain an internationally-recognized research program, and are 
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 and 
teaching strengths of the department will be an important factor in 

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 November 30, 
2018.  Applications past the deadline may continue to be considered as 
long as the submission website remains open.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and 
diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been 
underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members 
of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under 
the BC Human Rights Code including sex, sexual orientation, gender 
identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, 
religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First 
Nation, Metis, Inuit or Indigenous person. All qualified candidates are 
encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be 
given priority.

of Faculty Recruiting, at research-recruiting-chair at cs.ubc.ca
