Assistant Professor : 3 positions

Application deadline: March 25, 2019

Auditions:  between May13 and May 24, 2019

Anticipated starting date: September 2019



The Department of Computer Science at École Polytechnique is welcomes applications for three Assistant Professors in Computer Science, starting September 2019.


Candidates should hold a Ph.D. and should have demonstrated great ability in research and teaching. They must be able to contribute to computer science education at all teaching level  (Bachelor, Ingénieur polytechnicien program, Master of Science and Technology). They will have to show how they will integrate in the teaching teams of basic and more specialized computer courses, and will have to be able to teach at least in one or more of the following domains: algorithmics, programming at all levels (in languages including C++), but also computer architecture, operating systems, compilation, and logic and complexity.

Recruited faculty members will strengthen one of the research teams of the Computer Science Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique (LIX) (including ALCO, COMBI, MAX, and AMIBIO for more algorithmic profiles, and COMETE, PARSIFAL and TYPICAL for profiles more related to semantics). Their ability to contribute to project-based teaching, and to strengthen the links between teaching, research and applications, will be an important selection criterion.

The chosen candidate will become a member of the LIX, where they will develop an original research activity in one of the existing teams. Henceforth, candidates must present a scientific project and/or expertise in one of the research domains of the LIX laboratory.


The responsibilities and missions of Assistant Professor positions at Ecole Polytechnique are similar to positions of « Maître de Conférences » in French Universities.


Candidates are invited to contact Eric Goubault (Chair of the Department of Computer Science, Nous contacter), François Morain (Vice-Chair of the Department of Computer Science, Nous contacter), or Mireille Régnier (Director of LIX, Nous contacter), as well as the head(s) of the team(s) most relevant to their research project.


The deadline for submission of application files on the School's Internet site is March 25, 2019 (candidatures-calliope.polytechnique.fr). Auditions are scheduled between May 13 and May 24, 2019.
