Excellent applicants in all areas of Computer Science will be considered. Applicants with a research and teaching focus on areas that complement the department’s strengths are preferred.
The Department of Computer Science offers undergraduate programs (Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science). We support many undergraduates in summer research projects, funded by programs such as NSERC USRAs. We offer a research-based MSc program, and the research activity in Computer Science at StFX has received high rankings by Macleans’ magazine. The Department has also recently launched a new course-based Master’s of Applied 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 continued growth, direction and success of the new programs in the department.
The successful candidate must hold a PhD (or a nearly completed PhD) in Computer Science. The candidate must show a strong commitment to excellence in both teaching and research. The primary responsibilities of the successful candidate will be teaching courses (both at the undergraduate and graduate level) in Computer Science. The successful candidate will be expected to have an active research program, participate in the MSc Program in Computer Science and to be successful in obtaining external grants. We seek candidates who are committed to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion; candidates should indicate concretely in their application how they plan to contribute towards these principles in the performance of their teaching and research activities.
Application material should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, a statement of research interests, copies of three recent publications and the contact information for three references.
