Just a heads up that Ecole Polytechnique has a few full-time faculty positions open in computer science, specifically two professor positions, one assistant professor position, and one tenure-track assistant professor position (denoted “Gaspard Monge Assistant Professor” in the Ecole Polytechnique nomenclature).
Successful candidates are expected to integrate into one of the existing research teams in the Department of Computer Science (DIX) at Ecole Polytechnique – and candidates are therefore strongly encouraged to make contact with the relevant research teams in advance of applying or interviewing for a position.
Teaching duties, for all candidates, will include both generalist and specialist courses in computer science, at all levels — in English.
The open, full-time, faculty positions are:
- 1x ”Assistant professor” and 1x “Professor” with a specialisation in Artificial Intelligence.
These are “AI as applied to ____”-positions, precisely as the successful candidates are to integrate in, and bring AI competencies to, one of the existing research teams in the Department of Computer Science – which include cryptology, computer networking, computer graphics, complex systems, cyber-physical systems, data-science, algorithms, and many other domains, see the WWW-site of the Department of Computer Science (DIX) .
- 1x “Professor” with a specialization in Cybersecurity,
Again, a successful candidate is expected to integrate into one of the existing research teams in the department, which is working on cybersecurity-related themes. This would typically either be the cryptology team, or the computer networking team.
- Gaspard Monge Assistant Professor with a specialisation in Cyber-Physical Systems
A successful candidate will be a promising junior researcher, specialised in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) – i.e., distributed control systems with applications to drones in particular – and will integrate within one of the research teams in the Department of Computer Science (DIX) which is working on CPS-related themes. This could in particular be the Cosynus team, but could also include teams such as computer networking, algorithms, or distributed systems.
The official descriptions of these positions can be found here: http://www.lix.polytechnique.fr/Labo/Eric.Goubault/positions-2018.htm.
As indicated, interested and interesting candidates should contact the respective research team(s) into which they might want to integrate — for further information, advice, etc.
Interested candidates are also welcome to contact me, if they either have general questions, or if they need a pointer to whom within their given scientific domain would be a good contact at the Department of Computer Science (DIX).
