of an excellent more senior candidate, a direct appointment at the level 
of Associate Professor may be considered.

·Earliest starting date: September 2020.

*Your role*

The selected candidate will be attached to the Department of Computer 
Science (DCS) in order to develop a new research group in Human-Computer 
Interaction and Interfaces (HCII). To complement the existing professor 
profiles in DCS, we are looking for a candidate with a strong background 
in HCII with a demonstrated track record in fields related to 
language-based systems (e.g., Dialogue-based systems, Conversational 
systems, Chatbots, Language-based user interfaces, 
Argumentation/Debating systems) or visual-based systems (e.g., 
Vision-based User interfaces, Object Recognition, Virtual/Augmented 
Reality).

(S)he will contribute to the teaching missions of the Department at all 
levels (Bachelor, Master, PhD). The successful candidate will be 
expected to advise PhD candidates and contribute to doctoral and 
postdoctoral training (e.g. organization of research seminars, reading 
groups, winter and summer schools, etc.). Furthermore the candidate 
should be open for interdisciplinary collaboration with other UL 
departments, faculties (in particular with the existing HCI group at 
FHSE), and centers, or external Luxembourgish research institutions.

The position at the Assistant Professor level follows Luxembourg’s 
tenure-track scheme according to which the initial appointment is a 
fixed-term contract. In case of an excellent more senior candidate, 
appointment at the level of Associate Professor is possible. Academic 
salaries are very competitive and among the highest in Europe.

*Your profile*

The Faculty of Science, Technology, and Medicine (FSTM) is seeking to 
hire an outstanding and visionary candidate. Applicants should have an 
excellent international track record, a strong background in theoretical 
foundations, an interest in innovative techniques, as well as be open 
for interdisciplinary collaborations with both academia and industry.

The selected candidate will have a successful experience in teaching of 
related aspects of Computer Science and should be willing to contribute 
to the teaching missions of the Department of Computer Science at the 
Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level, as well as to administrative tasks.

We offer an international team at a young and dynamic university, an 
interdisciplinary research environment, and a wide network of academic, 
institutional, and corporate partners.

Special consideration will be given to female and young candidates to 
address the age pyramid and gender balance within DCS.

*Qualifications, experience, aptitude*

·PhD degree in Computer Science or equivalent

·Excellence in research, with a proven reference to Human-Computer 
Interaction and Interfaces from the perspective of visual- or 
language-based systems

·Experience in teaching at the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate 
level

·Excellent presentation and communication skills

·Excellent organizational and management skills

·Experience in acquiring and managing research projects

·An excellent command of English. Knowledge of either French or German 
is an asset. The University of Luxembourg is set in a multilingual and
