The Department of Computer Science at St. Francis Xavier University invites applications for a Limited Term appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor. This position is subject to final budgetary approval. The appointment is a two-year (24-month) position starting September 01, 2020.

St. Francis Xavier University’s Computer Science program is nationally recognized as one of the top 20 Computer Science programs in Canada. Computer Science research at St. Francis Xavier University ranks in first place in Canada in field-specific research impact (Field-weighted citation impact, Maclean’s 2020).

The Department of Computer Science offers undergraduate programs (Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science) and a thesis-based Master’s of Science in Computer Science. The Department has also recently launched a new course-based Master’s of Applied Science in Computer Science as well as a post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Artificial Intelligence to complement other undergraduate degrees. The candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to the growth, direction and success of the new programs in the department.

The successful candidate should hold a PhD (or a nearly completed PhD) in Computer Science or a closely related field. The candidate must show a strong commitment to teaching. While the primary responsibilities of the successful candidates will be teaching courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level, the Department is looking for candidates with a strong commitment to innovative research.

Application material should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, a statement of research interests and the contact information for three references. The application must be submitted electronically in the form of one pdf file sent to: rtmacdon@stfx.ca with subject line LTA_CS_2020.

The review of applications will begin on February 17, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled.
