The Department of Computer Science at École Polytechnique welcomes applications for an Assistant Professor in Computer Science, starting September 2020. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. and should have demonstrated great ability in research and teaching. They must be able to contribute to computer science education at all teaching level (Bachelor, Ingénieur polytechnicien program, Master of Science and Technology). They will have to show how they will integrate in the teaching teams of basic and more specialized computer courses, and will have to be able to teach at least in one or more of the following domains: algorithmics, programming at all levels (in languages including C++), but also computer architecture, operating systems, compilation, and logic and complexity. Recruited faculty members will strengthen one of the research teams of the Computer Science Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique (LIX). Their ability to contribute to project-based teaching, and to strengthen the links between teaching, research and applications, will be an important selection criterion. The chosen candidate will become a member of the LIX, where they will develop an original research activity in one of the existing teams. Henceforth, candidates must present a scientific project and/or expertise in one of the research domains of the LIX laboratory.

The responsibilities and missions of Assistant Professor positions at Ecole Polytechnique are similar to positions of « Maître de Conférences » in French Universities, and are tenured positions (after a one year probation period). Candidates are invited to contact (the head of the CS departement), Gilles Schaeffer (Director of LIX,, as well as the head(s) of the team(s) most relevant to their research project.
