The University of Basel invites applications for a professorship in Data Analytics
Systems (tenure-track assistant professor level). The professorship will be part of
the Computer Science section of the Department of Mathematics and Computer
Science which encompasses the specializations Machine Intelligence and Distributed
Systems. The professorship will strengthen the intersection between the
two specializations, contribute to the PhD program in Data Analytics, and participate
in the universitywide Data Analytics Center.
The new professor will enhance the research portfolio of the Department of Mathematics
and Computer Science and contribute to teaching at the undergraduate
and graduate level. Interdisciplinary research collaboration with other
departments and affiliated institutions of the Faculty of Science and other Faculties
of the University of Basel is expected.
We are seeking candidates with an outstanding research record in distributed
systems and machine learning, with emphasis on large-scale data analysis and
computationally efficient machine learning platforms. In addition to a strong research
profile, experience with application areas such as life sciences, computational
sciences, cyber security, or digital humanities will be appreciated. A strong
commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching is essential.
