Tenure-Track Positions | SCS | UW

[Please remove <h1>]

Applications are invited for several tenure-track or tenured faculty positions in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science.

  • One senior tenured David R. Cheriton Chair in Software Systems is open for candidates with outstanding research records in software systems (very broadly defined). The successful applicant will be an acknowledged leader in his or her field or have demonstrated the potential to become such a leader. This position includes substantial research support and a teaching reduction.
  • Up to three tenure-track positions are open for candidates who will enhance the school's strength in any area of computer science. Candidates with interests in one of the many research areas relevant to big data, including collection, storage, processing or analysis, are especially welcome. We are open to making more senior appointments should the circumstances warrant.

Successful applicants who join the University of Waterloo are expected to be leaders in research, engage actively in graduate-student supervision, and contribute to the overall development of the School. A Ph.D. in Computer Science, or equivalent, is required, with evidence of excellence in teaching and research. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience, and appointments are expected to commence during the 2013 calendar year.

With over 70 faculty members, the University of Waterloo's David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science is the largest in Canada. It enjoys an excellent reputation in pure and applied research and houses a diverse research program of international stature. Because of its recognized capabilities, the School attracts exceptionally well-qualified students at both undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, the University has an enlightened intellectual property policy which vests rights in the inventor: this policy has encouraged the creation of many spin-off companies including iAnywhere Solutions Inc., Maplesoft Inc., Open Text Corp., and Research in Motion.
