Monge Assistant Professor

Application deadline : 25 March 2019

Auditions : 13 to 24 May 2019

Anticipated starting date : September 2019


The Department of Computer Science at École Polytechnique is likely to recruit an assistant professor in Computer Science, starting September 2019.


Candidates should hold a Ph.D. and should have demonstrated great abilities in research and teaching. They must be able to contribute to computer science education at all teaching levels  (Bachelor , Engineering degree, Master or MOOC and Executive Education ). They will have to show integration in the teaching teams of the basic and more specialized computer courses  and will have to be able to teach at least one or more of the following domains: algorithmics, programming at all levels (among which C ++), but also  architecture of computers , operating systems, compilation and logic and complexity . Recruited faculty members will strengthen one of the existing LIX teams (including ALCO, COMBI, MAX, 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 selected candidate will be a member of the Laboratory of Computer Science of the Ecole Polytechnique (LIX), where she or he will develop an original research activity in one of the existing teams. Candidates must present a scientific project and / or expertise in the domains of the LIX laboratory.


As for responsibilities and missions, Assistant Professor positions at Ecole Polytechnique are similar to positions of « Maître de Conférences » in French Universities. Monge positions are tenure-track positions of two times three years, during which the holder of the position will have to pass his « Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches » (habilitation thesis – the holder will benefit from a partial discharge of his teaching duties). After six years, the holder of the Monge position will be tenured as a professor (with responsibilities and missions analogous to the positions of « Professeur des Universités » in France), in case of a positive evaluation from the department committee.


Candidates  are invited to contact Eric Goubault (Chair of the Department of Computer Science, Nous contacter ), or 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 of the teams most relevant to their research project .

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