The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver campus, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in computer and software engineering. While our focus is on research in embedded computing and cyber-physical systems, we will consider candidates with a research background in other sub-areas of computer and software engineering in exceptional cases. The anticipated start date for this position is July 1, 2024, or shortly thereafter.

Embedded and cyber-physical systems can encompass a wide range of applications, from personal robotics to the creation of smart cities. Developing such systems involves co-operating efficiently and safely with complex real-world processes, and requires modelling, perceiving, rationalizing and controlling those processes. This involves scientific and behavioural understanding, computing technologies, formal methods, dependability and temporal assurance, and, especially, safe autonomy.
