This position combines a 6-year PhD project with teaching responsibilities. In the first four years, the expected division between teaching and PhD research is 50/50; in the final two years the teaching load is reduced to 25%. This gives a total of 3.5 years of PhD research, and 2.5 of educational responsibilities.
The PhD research project is to be conducted in one of the 11 computer science sections of the faculty. Interested candidates should identify a research topic they would like to work on, and compile a 1-2 page research proposal on that topic. This should include the identification of potential collaborators or supervisors of the two computer science departments of Software Technology and Intelligent Systems. It is advised to contact such collaborators in advance to discuss potential topics. Candidates will enroll in the faculty’s Graduate School.
The primary educational activities will be participating in teaching teams at the bachelor level, co-designing courses, providing lectures, recruiting and managing the teaching assistants, overseeing lab work, and creating and evaluating exercises. Lecturers are in close contact with students, monitor their progress, and pro-actively come up with course improvements. Furthermore, lecturers in a PhD track are involved in supervising bachelor and master students in their research thesis projects, as well as in co-teaching master courses in the area of their research.
