Assistant and Associate Professorship positions in Data Science
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, invites applications for several new positions in Data Science. The successful candidates are expected to start sometime during 2021. Application deadline: 30 November 2020.
We are particularly looking for applicants with strong expertise in one or more of the following areas:
Databases and Big Data management
Multimedia Data Management and Analysis
Image Processing and Analysis
Natural Language Processing
Spatial and Spatio-temporal Data
Fairness, Accountability and Transparency in AI.
The ideal candidate
Has a PhD and research background in Computer Science or a similar field.
Can contribute to teaching and advising in the department’s MSc degree in Data Science. The ability to support other degrees at the department (Computer Science, Pure/Applied Mathematics) will be a plus.
We are inviting applicants on the levels of both assistant and associate professor, and the applicants are asked to state in their letter of application on which level they wish to apply.
Candidates for the position of assistant professor to have considerable postdoctoral research experience after their PhD with a strong research potential. An appointment as assistant professor lasts for three years, and contingent on successful completion of a lecturer training programme and a positive performance evaluation, a permanent position for associate professor is normally opened, for which the assistant professor can apply.
Candidates for the position of associate professor to have a recognized research track record of more than four years after their PhD and to have demonstrated the ability to direct independent research projects and obtain external funding. In addition, applicants are expected to have substantial experience in teaching and supervision at all levels. The associate professorship position is a tenured/permanent position.
Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of Danish is not a prerequisite for application. However, the primary administrative language at SDU is Danish and staff should therefore be willing to acquire Danish skills within a couple of years.
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a modern, inclusive, international and interdisciplinary working environment with state-of-the-art facilities as well as a strong tradition for collaboration across the departments and faculties. The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science covers five research sections:
Data Science and Statistics
Concurrency and Logic
The department is also hosting the SDU eScience Centre, a national provider of HPC infrastructure for research, and thus offers access to attractive computational resources for research, teaching and industry. The degrees offered by the department include BSc and MSc degrees in mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematics economics as well as PhD degrees, and an MSc degree in data science.
The University of Southern Denmark was founded in 1966 and now has more than 27,000 students, almost 20% of whom are from abroad. It has more than 3,800 employees, and 115 different study programmes in the fields of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, and engineering. Its main campus is located in Odense, the third largest city in Denmark. Odense provides family-friendly living conditions with the perfect combination of a historic city centre with an urban feel and yet a close proximity to beaches and recreational areas. Its location on the beautiful island of Funen is ideal with easy access by train or highway to the bigger cities of Aarhus and Copenhagen. As the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, Denmark’s famous fairytale author, the city is home to a vibrant and creative population that hosts numerous festivals and markets throughout the year.
