Tenure-Track Professor in Artificial Intelligence
The Department of Computer Science (CS) at Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland) invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured professor in Artificial Intelligence. As Aalto is presently investing strongly in fundamental AI research and the Finnish state is undertaking large applied AI initiatives, the Aalto Department of Computer Science is the right place to pursue the next generation of AI. We aspire to recruit a future leader in the area, with an inspiring vision for the next decades.
The Department of Computer Science is among Europe’s top-20 CS departments, and is particularly strong in areas represented in the present call. The department hosts a national Centre of Excellence on Computational Inference Research, and the current faculty’s strength is apparent in e.g. the high volume of extremely competitive funding from the Academy of Finland (equivalent to National Science Foundation) and the European Research Council (ERC). The department attracts significant numbers of high-achieving international students into its MSc and PhD programmes, and as the foremost CS educator in Finland, it is home to the majority of the best Finnish CS students. In total, the department employs 44 professors with diverse interests, forming a fertile environment for cross-disciplinary collaborations. On a larger scale, as a technology-friendly, yet small country, Finland offers ample opportunities for low-overhead collaboration with industrial and government partners as well. A joint appointment at the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT, a joint research centre with the University of Helsinki, can be negotiated.
The review of the new position will begin on Jan 25, 2018 and the position will remain open until filled. For further information, please visit here.
