Recognizing that society is increasingly digital and that the ability of software to cope with change is pivotal for a successful digitalization, the department of computer science at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is looking for an associate professor to establish a strong profile in various topics related to adaptive software (AS) research, and contribute to our computer science bachelor/master programs as well as our information sciences master program.
Our philosophy is to hire the best person rather than hiring someone in a narrowly defined research area. She/He will initiate, conduct and supervise high-quality research aiming to address the increasing complexity and uncertainty that modern software-intensive systems have to cope with. The software ability to support complex, multi-stakeholder environments and adapt to anticipated and unanticipated change calls for research in (but not limited to) requirements engineering, software architecture design decision making, software sustainability modeling, assessment, management and monitoring, methodologies for software design, evolution, optimization, and adaptation.
We especially encourage women applicants. In the case of equal suitability of candidates, preference will be given to a female candidate.
While we are looking for candidates at the level of associate professor, we welcome applications from candidates at higher levels.The tenure track position is starting at the level of assistant professor in the areas of research, education and management (40%:40%:20%), and contains amongst others the following responsibilities:
- We seek an energetic and synergetic candidate that is eager to shape and lead their research
- Candidates will be expected to contribute to teaching in our bachelor and master programs by initiating/developing and planning 2-3 courses within the area of adaptive software, as well as in the supervision of bachelor and master thesis projects. The candidate will be encouraged to further improving education
- Where relevant, we encourage collaboration between the existing groups in the department
