1 Associate Professor and 2 Assistant Professor positions in Software Engineering

Location: Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Gothenburg

First day of employment: Spring 2016

The department of Computer Science and Engineering is a joint department at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. The department ranks amongst the top CSE departments in Europe and worldwide.

The department has around 210 employees from over 30 countries. Our research has a wide span, from theoretical foundations to applied systems development. We provide high quality education at Bachelor's, Master's and graduate levels, offering over 120 courses each year. We also have extensive national and international collaborations with academia, industry and society.

The positions are placed at the Software Engineering division, which is one of five divisions within the department.

The formal employment of the associate professor will be at Chalmers.

Details about the application and procedure for this can be found at:

The Software Engineering (SE) division in Gothenburg is a young division with a very international staff. The division has a strong track record in cutting-edge research and a strong empirical and industrial focus. It currently has about 15 permanent staff and around 20 Ph.D. students and postdocs. The research within the SE division includes a.o.: software architecture, security, requirements engineering, model-based software development, software metrics, open source and software ecosystems, software engineering for cyber-physical systems, and software testing. The department has a Software Center that initiates and performs industrially relevant research with companies.

The SE division’s website can be found here: http://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/cse/organisation/se/Pages/default.aspx

Our university offers competitive salaries, generous holidays and parental leave arrangements and has a good working environment as a high strategy. For example, we have a fitness room (free for staff use) in our building, we have several social events for our division each year (ranging from fencing to carting and bring-your-country's-food dinners). Also, the university offers an individual career-planning scheme. Part-time work can be considered for this position. The Department is strongly committed to employment equity within its community and to recruiting a diverse faculty and staff.

Specific subject description

The candidates are expected to be able to teach a wide range of topics in the area of Software Engineering. Concrete courses that are in need of a lecturer are: Project-courses in which students implement systems as a team, and courses in Programming (Java), Technical Analysis and Design and Change Management. The teaching activities also include supervising of Bachelor and Master theses.

The candidates are expected to do research in an area within Software Engineering. In research we are looking for expertise that has clear synergy with existing topics, yet also complements our existing expertise. Some topics that are considered attractive are:

- software process improvement, human factors in software development, managing innovations in software development

- software engineering in gaming/mobile/start-ups

- industry-oriented research in testing (e.g. security testing, testing cyberphysical systems)

- software engineering related to Big Data (e.g. Data mining in the large, data mining user data, knowledge-based sensemaking)

- Smart/Autonomous Cyberphysical Systems

- Requirements Engineering (esp. software product management)

For the associate professor we will expect a stronger track record in research – including supervision of ph.d. students and management/service than for the assistant professors. The definitive criteria can be found on the respective websites mentioned earlier.
