The Department of Computer Science at Reykjavik University invites applications for two full-time, permanent faculty positions at any rank in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Data Science and Machine Learning, Software Engineering, and Theoretical Computer Science. For one of the positions, we will give preferential treatment to excellent applicants in Software Engineering, broadly construed. However, the primary evaluation criterion is scientific quality. Outstanding candidates in other areas of Computer Science are encouraged to apply as well. See for details and the link to the application form.

We are looking for energetic, highly qualified academics with a proven international research record and excellent potential in their field of study. We particularly welcome applications from researchers who have a strong network of research collaborators, can strengthen internal collaborations within the department, have the proclivity to improve their academic environment and its culture, and have the drive and potential to flourish in our environment. The Department of Computer Science at Reykjavik University is characterized by a flat hierarchical structure and every faculty member is expected to act like a principal investigator regardless of their level of employment.

Salary and rank are commensurate with experience. Successful applicants receive a relocation budget, some seed research funding in the first two years of their employment and support for one PhD student. Among other benefits, Reykjavik University offers its research staff the option to take sabbatical semesters every three years of satisfactory teaching and research activity and provides some additional financial support during those semesters.

The intended starting date for the positions is August 2023. The deadline for applications is January 27, 2023. The review of the applications will begin in late January 2023 and will continue until the positions are filled.

Application Process:
A PhD in Computer Science or a related field is required. Applications should be submitted through the university’s online application submission system and should include the following documents:

  • a cover letter specifying whether the candidate is applying for appointment as an assistant, associate, or full professor,
  • a CV with a full list of publications,
  • links to three to five major publications,
  • a research statement,
  • a teaching statement,
  • supporting material regarding excellence in teaching, if available, and
    any other relevant information the applicant wishes to supply.

Please arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent directly to [email protected] (subject “Faculty Positions in CS”) with a copy to Professor Luca Aceto ([email protected]), Chair of the Department of Computer Science. Informal communication and discussions on any aspect related to the positions are encouraged, and interested candidates are welcome to contact the chair of the search committee, Associate Professor María Óskarsdóttir ([email protected]), for further information.
