Professorship in CS (Algorithms) at Free University Brussels

Open position for a professor at the Department of Computer Science of ULB
(Free University of Brussels) starting in October 2004.


The Faculty of Sciences of the Free University of Brussels (ULB) announces
the opening of a full-time position for a "charge de cours"  (first
professorial level) in Computer Science, starting October the 1st, 2004.
This is a tenured full-time permanent position within the Computer Science
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.  Preference is
given to candidates able to reinforce one of the existing groups of the
Computer Science Department, in one of the following areas:

    * Algorithms
    * Combinatorial Optimization
    * Stochastic modeling and machine-learning methods

Other areas may be considered depending on the quality of the candidates. 
Evaluation will be based on the ability to reinforce or create a research 
group, as well as participating to high quality teaching at the 
Department of Computer Science. Candidates are required to have a PhD in 
computer science, research papers published at an international level, 
and should demonstrate their ability for teaching at university. A 
significantly long research stay in a foreign university or research 
laboratory will be considered as an advantage. The successful candidate 
should progressively increase his teaching activities to reach a level 
comparable to that of his colleagues (typically 4 or 5 hours a week for 
two semesters, plus supervision of exercises sessions). This position 
will become permanent after a trial period of three years.
