The Department of Computer Science at the University of Regina invites applications for the tenure-track SaskPower Assistant Professor in Artificial Intelligence, starting July 1, 2021.
Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related field by the time of appointment and be committed to excellence in the three pillars of academia: research, teaching, and service, which will be used as the criteria to evaluate and rank the applications. More detail on these criteria are provided below.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate a strong research record via respected peer-reviewed publications on topics in Theoretical Foundations of Artificial Intelligence, including, but not limited to theory-oriented research on Logic in Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Representation, Heuristic Search and Planning, or Computational Learning Theory. In particular, the successful candidate’s publication record and research plan will demonstrate the potential to publish in venues that are ranked A* under the CORE ranking (https://www.core.edu.au/conference-portal). The successful candidate will be expected to initiate an independent research program, secure external funding to support this research, and recruit and supervise graduate students conducting research in their area of expertise. In their application candidates are expected to provide a research plan that has potential for long-term external funding via NSERC grants or industry partnerships.
Candidates are expected to provide evidence of teaching expertise and a teaching philosophy. The successful candidate will be expected to teach core computer science courses in our under-graduate program in the areas of theoretical computer science and/or artificial intelligence, as well as courses at the graduate level with a specific focus on courses that are aligned with their primary research area.
