SYSTEMS WITH SINGAPORE’S SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY’S UNIVERSITY, NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY
A member of the College of Engineering, the School of Computer Engineering (SCE) originated from the School of Applied Science that was
established in 1988. Recognizing the rapid growth in the information technology arena, SCE was formed in 2000. It offers undergraduate training
leading to BEng (Hons) in Computer Engineering or Computer Science as well as full-time and part-time graduate training leading to MSc and PhD.
SCE’s strengths lie in constantly maintaining industrial relevance in its training of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as pioneering
innovative cutting-edge research. The school comprises of four divisions, namely Division of Computer Communications (CCM), Division of Computer
Science (CSC), Division of Computing Systems (CPS) and Division of Information Systems (IS).
Applications are invited for appointment as Associate Professor (A/P) or Assistant Professor (Ast/P) in one of the four divisions.
High-calibre applicants who possess a PhD and with a proven track record in research and teaching at university level are invited to apply for
suitable appointments in the following areas:
• Network System, Seamless Communications, Wireless • Modelling & Simulation (Ast/P in CSC)
Sensor Network (Ast/P in CCM) • Embedded Systems (Ast/P in CPS)
• Multimedia Understanding, Mobile Multimedia • Intelligent Robotics & Control (Ast/P in CPS)
(Ast/P in CCM) • Audio, Speech & Signal Processing (Ast/P in CPS)
• Distributed Systems, Collaborative Computing, or High • Information Retrieval/ Text Mining (A/P or Ast/P in IS)
Performance Computing (Ast/P in CSC) • Agents and Services Computing (A/P or Ast/P in IS)
Candidates for appointment at an Associate Professor level must possess an outstanding track record of research through publication in top
rank journals, obtaining grants and academic leadership, as well as a willingness and demonstrated ability to teach at the undergraduate and
graduate levels. Candidates for appointment at Assistant Professor level must demonstrate strong research potential and a willingness and
ability to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The successful candidates are expected to carry out research in one of the research centres hosted by the school. Candidates are expected
to teach on both MSc programmes and BEng Computer Engineering/Computer Science degrees offered by the school.

Postdoc Positions Available in Amsterdam
The Computer Systems section of the Department of Computer Science at the Vrije Universiteit
is looking for two postdocs to work in the group of Prof. Andrew Tanenbaum. The theme running
through all our research is how to design and build dependable and secure systems software. This
research is being funded in part by a European Research Council Advanced Grant of € 2. 5 million
awarded to Prof. Tanenbaum.
The goal of this project is to develop a highly dependable operating system that never goes down and
which can repair itself and even upgrade itself automatically, without rebooting and without stopping
running applications. The system will be based on MINIX 3 ( www.minix3.org), which is a very
small and reliable microkernel. The postdoc will do research in the area of dependable systems.
Another opening is for a 2-year postdoc in computer security. The candidate must have a strong
publication record in the area of security with a preference for system security. The postdoc will
carry out research within the project S-Mobile ( www.cs.vu.nl/~ast/s-mobile) in the area of security
of mobile platforms (e.g., Android).
