The department of computer science of the universite du Quebec a Montreal (www.info.uqam.ca<http://www.info.uqam.ca>) seeks highly qualified candidates for six tenure track professor positions in:
1) theoretical computer sciences and bioinformatics including, but not limited to: algorithms, optimisation, computing theory, computational geometry, computational logic, and bioinformatics
2) data science and artificial intelligence including, but not limited to, infrastructure aspects of "big data" (storage, organization, parallel & distributing computing), algorithms, data mining, machine learning (deep, shallow, and symbolic ;-))
3) computer/electronic system engineering including, but not limited to wireless (sensor) networks, IoT, embedded systems, as well as emerging applications in biomedical engineering, security, blockchain, and edge computing.
4) computer systems, networks, and security including, but not limited to operating systems, distributed systems, mobile networks, virtualization, cybersecurity, data privacy, etc.
5) computer imaging including but not limited to, image processing, image analysis, artificial vision, modelling, simulation, real-time image rendering, etc.
6) parallel computing, distributed processing, and high performance computing including, but not limited to, languages, tools and systems for parallel computing, the organization and processing of "big data", massively distributed/parallel systems, and green high-performance computing.
Candidates who wish to be considered for more than one position should identify the target positions in their cover letter.
Within the context of the Federal 'Equity, Diversion, and Inclusion' initiative, qualified women, minority, and candidates with disabilities who apply for the "data science and artificial intelligence" will be considered for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair.
Professors are expected to: 1) conduct high-quality sustainably fundable research, 2) teach at the undergraduate, Master's and PhD levels, 3) supervise students in one of three Master's programs (research-oriented programs in Computer Science and Management Information Systems, and a professional software engineering program) or three PhD programs (computer science, cognitive informatics, and mathematics), and 4) perform the usual administrative duties (curriculum committees, graduate student admissions committees, etc.). All new hires get start-up research funds, reduced teaching load and waivers of administrative duties for the first two years.
The computer science department is one of the largest in Canada, with close to 1000 students, at the undergraduate and graduate levels, millions of dollars in research funding, and 40 professors, doing research on theoretical computer science (www.lacim.uqam.ca<http://www.lacim.uqam.ca>), internet application engineering (www.latece.uqam.ca<http://www.latece.uqam.ca>), technical aspects of AI (www.gdac.uqam.ca<http://www.gdac.uqam.ca>), socio-ethical aspects of AI (www.humania.uqam.ca<http://www.humania.uqam.ca>), telecommunications and embedded systems (www.trime.uqam.ca<http://www.trime.uqam.ca>), bioinformatics (www.bioinfo.uqam.ca<http://www.bioinfo.uqam.ca>), microsystem design and manufacturing (www.cofamic.uqam.ca<http://www.cofamic.uqam.ca>), and open science (www.grisou.uqam.ca<http://www.grisou.uqam.ca>).
The computer science department is part of the Faculté des Sciences, which includes maths, biology, chemistry, earth sciences, environmental studies, and kinesiology, and is embedded in the heart of Montreal's cultural center (www.quartierdesspectacles.com<http://www.quartierdesspectacles.com>), with lots to do around campus. The universite du Quebec a Montreal (UQAM, www.uqam.ca<http://www.uqam.ca>) is a progressive, collegial, urban university, with a long tradition in equal opportunity and affirmative action policies for women, minorities, and people with disabilitiesp. UQAM offers a competitive compensation package, commensurate with qualifications and seniority.
Montreal is a dynamic, multicultural, scientific, technological, and cultural metropolis, with over 200000 students, attending four major universities, and many research institutes, a thriving high-tech industry (IT, aeronautics, pharmaceutical), with plenty of opportunities for industry-funded research, and a thriving year-around cultural scene. It is also one of the safest, most affordable cities in North America.
Interested candidates are invited to submit their cover letter, resume, teaching statement (en Français), research statement (en Français), and a sample of four publications, and arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to the department and search committee chair, Prof. Louise Laforest, at laforest.louise at uqam.ca<mailto:laforest.louise at uqam.ca>. To ensure consideration, please submit your application no later than Friday, January 25th, at 5:00 pm.
