The Faculty of Science of the University of Basel, Switzerland, invites outstanding scientists to apply for an
Assistant Professorship (Tenure-Track)
in High Performance Computing
beginning in spring 2014.
The University of Basel is promoting the growing area of computational science. The faculty of science started in 2002 to offer a full Bachelor and Master program in Computer Science with an application-oriented profile.
The person to be appointed will have an excellent research track record in the field of High Performance Computing (HPC). Ideally, she or he has both a theoretical and a practical background.
Possible research areas include, but are not limited to, parallel algorithms and data structures, programming techniques for massively parallel systems, performance modeling and load balancing, fault-tolerance, energy-awareness, ultra-large scale simulations, data-intensive computing, cyber-physical systems and scientificclouds. Experience and knowledge in applied fields of computational sciences like systems biology, or in social sciences, are a plus.
The position includes teaching duties in research related fields as well as core computer science at the Master and PhD level (in English) and at the Bachelor level (German preferred).
The successful candidate is expected to establish close cooperation within the university. Experience with industrial and academic cooperation is desirable.
Applications from female candidates are particularly welcomed.
Applications must include a detailed CV, a list of publications together with selected publications, a research and teaching
statement, as well as a cover letter with names of referees. Applications should be sent by e-mail (pdf, zip) to Prof. Dr. Jörg Schibler (Dean, Faculty of Science, University of Basel, Klingelbergstrasse 50, CH-4056 Basel, Switzerland, firstname.lastname@example.org).
For informal enquiries please contact the head of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science,
Prof. Dr. Ch. Tschudin (email@example.com) or visit the Computer Science Section web pages »
The deadline for receipt of applications is April 7, 2013.
