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, software security
(including Software Engineering for cybersecurity) or formal methods in
Software 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 November 1, 2021 (New Zealand time).
