As part of our planned expansion in the area of Cybersecurity, the
Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of
Southern Denmark, Odense, invites applications for an assistant professor
position in Computer Science. We interpret the area cybersecurity broadly:
the ideal applicant is a computer scientist with a strong theoretical
background, conducting research on cybersecurity or research that has
cybersecurity as a direct application. We would like to expand on our
current security research efforts within Cryptology, Formal Methods,
Information Security, Security in DevOps, and Data-driven approaches,
so these topics are of particular interest.
- is a computer scientist holding a PhD
- has a strong record of research at a high international level,
reflecting the academic age of the applicant
- can teach and advise in computer science at all levels, including a
broad range of core computer science subjects at the undergraduate level.
Experience in combining theory and practice of computer science is a plus.
Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of Danish is not a requirement:
more English than Danish is used when teaching in computer science, and
more than half of the faculty members in computer science have
international backgrounds. Our new colleague will be offered Danish
courses by the university.

About the department:
Based in Odense, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers
an inclusive and international working environment with state-of-the-art
facilities as well as a strong tradition for collaboration across
departments and faculties, and with other educational institutions,
municipalities, and industries. The degrees offered by the department
include bachelor, master, and PhD in computer science, and a master in
data science. Our assistant professors, in particular, have very
reasonable teaching loads.
An appointment as an assistant professor lasts for three years, and
contingent on a positive performance evaluation, a permanent position for
an associate professor is normally opened, for which the assistant
professor can apply.
The starting date should preferably be no later than spring 2021.
Application deadline: 30 May 2020.
