To strengthen and expand the research of the Software Science (SWS) group, we seek a tenure track Assistant Professor of Software Technology who will focus on applications and transfer of academic results to industry/society. You will have the opportunity to develop your own research line in the context of the SWS group's future activities. You will be expected to supervise a number of PhD candidates and to teach Bachelor's degree courses in Computer Science (e.g. Software Engineering and New Devices Lab) and Master's degree courses in Software Science. You will also actively contribute to the supervision of Bachelor's and Master's projects and will be involved in organisational tasks within the institute. All teaching is in English. In the first three years, you will have a reduced teaching load (20% instead of 40%). The institute will also fund an initial PhD position to help you to set up your own research line.
Fixed-term contract: six years.
The position is available in the Software Science (SWS) group of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (iCIS) at Radboud University. The mission of the SWS group is to conduct world-leading research on the use of models for design and analysis of software. The group is well-known for work on model-based software engineering, model learning, model-based testing, model checking, combining formal verification and machine learning, functional programming and HPC/array computing, proof assistants, and mathematical foundations. We find it important (and inspiring!) to cover the full spectrum from theory to applications in a single research group. Through collaboration with stakeholders from industry and society, we obtain a better understanding of when and how software science can help to solve real-world problems. Thus we have joint projects with, for instance, Canon Production Printing, ASML, Alfa Laval, Philips Healthcare, Google, Intel, the Netherlands Defence Academy (NLDA), and our spin-off TOP Software Technology.
Radboud University's iCIS is an internationally recognised institute, consistently ranked among the top Computer Science departments in the Netherlands. iCIS comprises an enthusiastic and devoted team of excellent academics that closely collaborate in a flat organisational structure. The institute focuses its research on three themes: data science, digital security and software science. Each of these themes spans the full breadth from basic fundamental research to application oriented research. Our long-term drive is to contribute to both science and society. iCIS staff members are also responsible for the Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Computer Science, the Master's programme in Information Science, and for about 30% of the Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Artificial Intelligence at Radboud University. In spite of the fast-growing student numbers, these programmes are structurally evaluated as one of the best (e.g. the computer science programme was rated the best in its field in the Keuzegids 2021). iCIS staff have a high level of freedom to determine the way they structure their work at Radboud University. The institute has made a strong effort in the past few years to increase staff diversity. Presently, more than half of our scientific staff have an international background.
