Assistant/Associate Professors of Computer Science

Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University, invites applications for one or more positions as assistant/associate professor of Computer Science from August 1st 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position as assistant professor is limited to 3 years.

The Department produces research at a high international level that feeds into our educational programmes, while simultaneously leveraging our research to impact social, economic and political change. A realization of this objective requires that research and educational activities are based on openness to the outside world, collaboration, inclusiveness and knowledge sharing. The tension embodied in the name of the Department, between people and technology, is a key feature of the Department's research.

IT systems have become a vital part of the infrastructure of modern human society. The design, construction, validation and evaluation of systems of ever increasing complexity and sophistication brings research challenges, both basic and applied, that are addressed by the research groups "Programming, Logic and Intelligent Systems" and “Sustainable Digitalization". The construction of reliable, intelligent, resource-efficient systems requires basic research in the mathematical and logic foundations of knowledge representation, algorithms, programming tools and languages. The overall multi-disciplinary goal of human-centered computing includes research in security and privacy, intuitive human-computer interaction, interfaces based on natural language and data visualization.
