Professor in Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science at École Polytechnique welcomes applications for a Professor in Computer Science, starting September 2020.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D and an "Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches" (or an equivalent) 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). 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 Professor positions at Ecole Polytechnique are similar to positions of « Professeur des Universités de 2ème, 1ère or classe exceptionnelle » in French Universities, and are tenured positions (after a one year probation period).
To prepare the teaching and research apsects of their application, respectively, candidates are invited to contact Marie-Paule Cani - mandated by the DIX (CS department), and Gilles Schaeffer Director of the LIX (Research lab).
The deadline for submission of application files on the School's Internet site is March 23, 2020 ► Online application.
Auditions are scheduled between May 11 and 20, 2020.
