Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Software Engineering Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

We invite applications for a full-time and continuing Lecturer or Senior Lecturer position in Software Engineering (equivalent to tenured Assistant or Associate Professor in the North American system). The level of appointment will depend on the successful candidate's relevant experience.

The successful candidate's research will complement the Department's present research activities, but is not limited to these topics. The successful candidate will also contribute to teaching undergraduate and postgraduate Software Engineering subjects, develop a strong, externally-funded research programme, supervise postgraduate students, participate in Departmental and University administration, as well as be expected to collaborate with other academics in the Department's teaching and research activities.

Applicants must hold a PhD degree in Software Engineering or Computer Science (or closely aligned discipline) and have a demonstrated record of published research in Software Engineering (or closely aligned discipline). The successful candidate will have a commitment to excellence in teaching of courses in Software Engineering at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The appointee will also demonstrate a background in supervising final year undergraduate projects, Masters and PhD students, an ability in collaborating with others in the University, and interest in contributing to Departmental, College, and University activities.

Even though the scope of research and teaching of this position is rather open and we encourage applications from candidates with a background in any area of Software Engineering, we are particularly interested in candidates with experience teaching team-based, project-oriented software development using object-oriented technologies (such as Java) and agile software development practices. Also, we encourage applications from candidates with research and teaching experience in software testing and cloud/web engineering.

The Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering is a strong and forward-looking Department, dedicated to excellence in both research and teaching and with collaborative links with research groups and industry throughout New Zealand and the world. Further information on the Department is available here: http://www.csse.canterbury.ac.nz/

The Department and University will assist in the development of a successful research programme and teaching portfolio. This may include, for example, support to start up research, and teaching training and mentoring.

Universities in New Zealand do not have a tenure system as compared to North American programmes and academic staff are continuing (i.e. permanent) employees upon appointment. Promotion to higher levels is based upon performance in all three keys areas: teaching, research and administrative responsibilities.

The closing date is January 26, 2020 (New Zealand time).
