About the Faculty of Computer Science
The Faculty of Computer Science is a research-focused faculty with over 50 faculty members, including Tier I and Tier II Canadian Research Chairs. Around one quarter of our 2400 students are enrolled in master’s or doctoral programs. The Faculty’s research strengths intersect across disciplines from oceans and agriculture to healthcare and the arts in core areas including: Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Human Computer Interaction, Visualization & Graphics, Systems, Algorithms & Bioinformatics, and Computer Science Education. The Faculty also partners with other Faculties and departments (including Management, Medicine, Law and Statistics) to offer various multi-disciplinary study streams under the Master of Digital Innovation program, and is an active participant in the Interdisciplinary PhD program.

We seek established researchers who can provide evidence of high-quality scholarly output that demonstrates a record of independent research. The candidate must hold a PhD in Computer Science or a related area. Research areas of interest include but are not limited to cloud computing, high performance computing, internet of things, security & software systems, or related fields. Evidence of a strong commitment to and aptitude for both research and teaching is essential.

The successful candidate will teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, participate in course development at both the undergraduate and graduate-level, supervise and mentor students, and support Faculty initiatives. The applicant will be expected to establish a strong externally funded research program, and foster existing and new collaborations with government, industry, and with other members of Dalhousie’s research community. Entrepreneurship, industrial experience, and ability to collaborate on both research and industry-focused projects will be considered assets.

Candidates who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in their research area may be recommended for a Dalhousie Established University Research Chair position.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
