Part-Time Teaching Position in Computer Science Chargé d’enseignement (Assistant Professor level)

Application deadline: March 15, 2023

Starting: September 2023


The Department of Computer Science of the Ecole Polytechnique (DIX) is willing to recruit a Part-Time Assistant Professor in charge of teaching (chargé d’enseignement) (*), at 40% (annual teaching loads: 78h).

The candidate should hold a PhD in Computer Science and show great abilities in teaching and research. She or he should be able to contribute to core computer science courses, as well as to specialized courses closer to her/his research domain, at all levels of DIX curriculums (Bachelor, Cycle Ingénieur Polytechnicien, Master, Master of Science and Technology), and integrate existing teaching teams. In particular, the teaching project, part of the application, should detail the possible contributions to the department, show the ability of the candidate to work in teams and her/his motivation for teaching. Specific pedagogical proposals, showing for instance the candidate’s ability to contribute to flipped classrooms and/or to develop project-based teaching and evaluation, are much welcome, as well as the ability to adapt to hybrid teaching modalities during a pandemic. Being fluent in French is a plus, but not mandatory.

Candidates will be evaluated based on their educational skills, their interest in teaching at École polytechnique, and their availability for participating to the educational, and if possible, research activities of the department. Prior knowledge of the existing course offer, and the organization of teaching will be appreciated.

Application packages must include the following documents: CV, research and teaching statements, and 3 reference letters. Applications must be submitted online through the École Polytechnique website by March 15, 2023, and interviews will be planned for the first weeks of May.

Candidates are encouraged to contact the department prior to the application, to discuss and refine their teaching project:
