for appointment as a tenured professor, demonstrated leadership skills, management or supervisory experience, and a strong interest in working
with students and the community. Reporting to
the Dean of the College of Engineering and Computing, the Director is responsible for promoting excellence in interdisciplinary research and
teaching, mentoring faculty, building research
teams, administration of School’s budgetary and
personnel operations, and collaborating with the
community and industry.
With a student enrollment of over 39,000, FIU
has achieved Carnegie Research University status
(with high research activity) and is one of the 25
largest universities in the nation. SCIS is the 6th
largest computer science program in the nation
and is a major school in the College of Engineering and Computing at FIU. SCIS has 32 faculty
members who support its offerings of BS (ABET
accredited), MS, and PhD programs in Computer
Science, BS/BA in IT, and MS in Telecommunications and Networking. The School serves approximately 1,150 undergraduates, 170 masters,
and 90 doctoral students, and provides service
courses to many students in various Engineering,
Business, and Arts & Sciences departments. In
2008-09, the SCIS received external funding in excess of $4.2M. The School’s IT staff operates and
maintains research and instructional computing
infrastructure and 25 laboratories, including a
10GB network backbone, virtualization-capable
data center, multimedia classrooms, and open
graduate and undergraduate labs, and IT hands-
on teaching labs.
The School’s faculty is involved in research areas including databases (data mining, visualization, knowledge discovery, GIS), software systems
(high performance computing and networking,
large scale modeling simulation, parallel and distributed systems, and adaptive, autonomic, pervasive, and grid computing), software engineering
(architecture, design, verification, testing, component technology, and verification), machine
learning, telecommunications and networking,
security, health informatics, Bioinformatics, algorithms and programming languages.
One of the School’s signature University/In-dustry partnership projects is the Latin American
Grid (LA Grid, pronounced “lah grid,” http://www.
latinamericangrid.org). Co-founded by IBM, and
with 12 academic and industry partners sharing
over 1,500 systems in an experimental grid, LA
Grid brings together computer scientists, domain experts, and industry experts to produce
the next generation of leaders of the IT industry
by synergistically combining research, education
and workforce development activities. It explores
“society critical” areas such as disaster mitigation, healthcare, and bioinformatics.
FIU offers a competitive salary and benefits
package, and an excellent work environment.
Application review continues until the position is filled. A letter of application, CV, statements of administrative, teaching, and research
philosophies, and a list of three references should

in software Development Technologies
Open call for Tenured and Tenure-track
Research positions in Computer Science
The Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies in
Software Development Technologies (
IMDEA-Software) invites applications for tenure-track
(Research Assistant Professor) and tenured (
Research Associate Professor and Research Professor) faculty positions in the following areas:
language and system support for multicore platforms, security, rigorous software engineering
(including rigorous approaches to validation and
testing), distributed, networked and embedded
systems, programming language implementation
(including compilers, program transformation,
garbage collection, the interplay between computer architecture and programming languages,
etc.) and service-oriented architectures.
The primary mission of the recently created
IMDEA Software Institute is to perform research
of excellence at the highest international level in
the area of software development technologies
and, in particular, science and technology which
will allow the cost-effective development of software products with sophisticated functionality
and high quality, i.e., which are safe, reliable, and
Windows Kernel Source and Curriculum Materials for
Academic Teaching and Research.
The Windows® Academic Program from Microsoft® provides the materials you
need to integrate Windows kernel technology into the teaching and research
of operating systems.
The program includes:
• Windows Research Kernel (WRK): Sources to build and experiment with a
fully-functional version of the Windows kernel for x86 and x64 platforms, as
well as the original design documents for Windows NT.
• Curriculum Resource Kit (CRK): PowerPoint® slides presenting the details
of the design and implementation of the Windows kernel, following the
ACM/IEEE-CS OS Body of Knowledge, and including labs, exercises, quiz
questions, and links to the relevant sources.
• ProjectOZ: An OS project environment based on the SPACE kernel-less OS
project at UC Santa Barbara, allowing students to develop OS kernel projects
These materials are available at no cost, but only for non-commercial use by universities.

or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The main selection criteria will be the candidate’s
demonstrated ability and commitment to research, the match of interests with the institute’s
mission, and how the candidate complements
the institute’s established strengths in the general areas of programming languages, program
analysis, and verification. All positions require an
earned doctoral degree in Computer Science or a
closely related area. Candidates for tenure-track
positions will have shown exceptional promise
in research and will have displayed an ability to
work independently as well as collaboratively.
Candidates for tenured positions must possess
an outstanding research record, have recognized
international stature, and demonstrated leadership abilities.
Application materials are available at the
Default.aspx?IdInstitute= 17 wherein candidates
must fill out an application form and attach a
copy of their CV, a research statement (at most 2
pages), and provide the names and email adress-es of referees. Only electronic applications are
considered. For best consideration, complete applications must be received by January 15, 2010
(and applicants should arrange for the reference
letters to arrive by that date), although applications will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled.
Salaries at IMDEA-Software are internationally
