The Faculty of Science of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) announces the opening of a full-time academic position in the Department of Computer Science starting October 1st, 2008.
Candidates are expected to lead high quality teaching and research programs in model-based development of embedded systems. All applicants are expected to hold a Phd in Computer Science or related disciplines and to have a strong record of publications and research experience in areas such as model-based design, verification, test, real-time scheduling or models for security. Experiences in international research collaboration as well as a significantly long research stay in a foreign university or research laboratory are important assets.
Several research teams of our department are active in the area of rigorous development methods for embedded systems, and in particular in: computer aided verification, testing and design, mathematical models for embedded systems, scheduling theory, and models for security. The candidate should be able to reinforce one of these topics within our department.
The position involves both teaching and research and some commitment to administrative tasks. For candidates not fluent in French, a temporary period of teaching in English may be granted. This position will become permanent after a trial period of three years.
The candidate will take part in teaching activities in the Bachelor and Master programmes in Computer Science, and in the evening Master program in Computer Science organized by ULB and Université de Mons-Hainaut. He/she should progressively increase his/her teaching activities to reach a level comparable to that of his/her colleagues (typically 4 or 5 hours a week for two semesters, plus supervision of exercises sessions).
If the selected candidate is neither already employed by ULB nor employed by the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique and working at ULB, he/she will be offered a first contract for a duration of three years. At the end of this period and subject to the agreement of the Board of the university, he/she will be offered a permanent position.
