Multiple Tenure-Track Faculty Positions¬
The Department of Computer Science, National
University of Singapore (NUS), has openings for
several tenure-track faculty positions. Our main
focus is on candidates at the Assistant Professor
level with research interests in the following areas:
˲ Cyber-physical systems
˲ Big data analytics
˲ Sensor data modelling and learning
These areas are to be viewed in a broad sense,
and we are particularly interested in candidates
whose research interests cut across these and
related areas. We seek candidates demonstrat-
ing excellent research potential and a strong
commitment to teaching. We will also seriously
consider exceptional candidates in other areas of
computer science. Further, we will consider can-
didates at senior ranks (Associate and Full Profes-

Tenure Track Openings
Applications are invited for tenure-track faculty
positions in all areas related to the theory and
practice of software systems. These areas include,
but are not limited to, security and privacy, embedded and mobile systems, social computing,
data science, programming languages and systems, software verification and analysis, parallel,
distributed, and networked systems.
A doctoral degree in computer science or related areas and an outstanding research record
are required. Successful candidates are expected
to build a team and pursue a highly visible research agenda, both independently and in collaboration with other groups.
MPI-SWS, founded in 2005, is part of a network of over 80 Max Planck Institutes, Germany’s
premier basic research facilities. MPIs have an
established record of world-class, foundational
research in the fields of medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, technology and humanities. Since
1948, MPI researchers have won 17 Nobel prizes.
MPI-SWS aspires to meet the highest standards of
excellence and international recognition with its
research in software systems.
To this end, the institute offers a unique environment that combines the best aspects of a
university department and a research laboratory:
a) Faculty enjoy academic freedom, receive in-
stitutional funding and attract additional third-
party funds to build and lead a team of graduate
students and post-docs.
b) Faculty supervise doctoral theses, and have the
opportunity to teach graduate and undergraduate
c) Faculty enjoy outstanding technical and ad-
ministrative support, as well as internationally
MPI-SWS currently has 10 tenured and tenure-track faculty and about 50 doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. The institute will grow to at
least 17 faculty over the coming years. We maintain an open, international and diverse work environment and seek applications from outstanding
researchers regardless of national origin or citizenship. The working language is English; knowledge of the German language is not required for a
successful career at the institute.
The institute is located in Kaiserslautern and
Saarbruecken, in the tri-border area of Germany,
France and Luxembourg. In immediate proximity
are the MPI for Informatics, Saarland University,
the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, the German Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), and
the Fraunhofer Institutes for Experimental Software Engineering and for Industrial Mathematics.
Qualified candidates should apply online via
the secure application form. The review of applications will begin on December 1, 2014, and applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by that
date; however, applications will continue to be
accepted through December 2014.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at Michigan State University (MSU) invites applications for two tenure-system faculty positions in the area of machine learning and other related disciplines.
Candidates at all ranks will be considered. The successful candidates will be expected to develop an externally funded interdisciplinary
research program of national prominence that includes fundamental research, publications in journals and high quality conferences,
and training graduate students. Multidisciplinary research is strongly encouraged and is being actively pursued by the faculty members
at MSU. Leadership is expected in the development of innovative educational programs that provide state-of-the-art knowledge to both
undergraduate and graduate students. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field, with evidence
of research accomplishments, teaching skills, and ability to work effectively with other researchers. The candidate is also expected to
participate in MSU campus programs, including the Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research, which supports a significant high performance
computing infrastructure and a steadily increasing data science/computational science program. Appointment will start in August 2015.
MSU enjoys a park-like campus with outlying research facilities and natural areas. The campus is adjacent to the city of East Lansing
and the capital city of Lansing. The Lansing metropolitan area has a diverse population of approximately 460,000 residents. Local communities have excellent school systems and place a high value on education.
