Tenure-track or Tenured Faculty Positions, Center on Frontiers of Computing
Studies, Peking University


The Center on Frontiers of Computing Studies (CFCS), Peking University
(PKU), China, is a university new initiative co-founded by Professors John
Hopcroft (Turing Awardee) and Wen Gao (CNE, ACM/IEEE Fellow). The center
aims at developing the excellence on two fronts: research and education. On
the research front, the center will provide a world-class research
environment for faculty member development, where innovation and impactful
research is the central aim, measured by professional reputation among world
scholars, not by counting the number of publications and research funding.
On the education front, the center hosts the Turing Class, an elite
undergraduate program that draws the cream of the crop from the PKU
undergraduate talent pool. New curriculum and pedagogy are designed and
practiced in this program, with the aim to cultivate a new generation of
computer scientist/engineers that are solid in both theories and practices.

Positions and Qualification

The center invites applications for tenured/tenure-track faculty positions.
We are seeking applicants from all areas of Computer Science, spanning
theoretical foundations, systems, software, and applications, with special
interests in artificial intelligence and machine learning. We are especially
interested in applicants conducting research at the frontiers of Computer
Science with other disciplines, such as data sciences, engineering, as well
as mathematical, medical, physical, and social sciences. 

Applicants are expected to have completed (or be completing) a Ph.D., have
demonstrated the ability to pursue a program of research, and have a strong
commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. A successful candidate
will be expected to teach one to two courses at the undergraduate and
graduate levels in each semester, and to build and lead a team of
undergraduate and graduate students in innovative research. 

Salary and Benefits

All newly hired faculty members will be provided with necessary startup
resource and research infrastructures.  Salaries and benefits are
internationally competitive and are to be individually negotiated in each
case, commensurate with the candidate's academic credentials.


To Apply:

Applicants should send a full curriculum vitae; copies of 3-5 key
publications; three to five names and contact information of references; and
a statement of research and teaching to: CFCS_recruiting at pku.edu.cn
<mailto:CFCS_recruiting at pku.edu.cn>  

We conduct review of applications monthly, immediately upon the recipient of
all application materials at the beginning of each month. However, it is
highly recommended that applicants submit complete applications sooner
rather than later, as the positions are to be filled quickly.
