The Informatics Institute (IvI) is recruiting an assistant professor Artificial Intelligence and Information Retrieval for a tenure track position within the Information and Language Processing Systems (ILPS) group at the Faculty of Science (FNWI), University of Amsterdam (UvA).
Information retrieval is concerned with connecting people to information. Search engines, recommender systems, and conversational assistants are prominent everyday examples. Artificial intelligence, and in particular machine learning, has become a driving force behind many breakthroughs in information retrieval. These developments have not gone unnoticed to industry either. Major players all have teams of researchers working at the interface of artificial intelligence and information retrieval. ILPS and AIRLab at IvI are very active research units at the interface of artificial intelligence and information retrieval, with over 40 researchers in the area.
At least two years of postdoctoral experience is expected but not strictly necessary. International research experience is also preferred. Relevant industry experience is a definite plus.
The vacancy is for a permanent position according to standard university policies. It is a temporary appointment with a tenure track agreement which will lead to tenured position for a period of 5 years during which the candidate should show his/her competence in science and teaching/education. In the fifth year of the appointment, the tenure decision will be made. This implies that experienced scientists will be offered a permanent position after a positive assessment and evaluation. The type of appointment is negotiable and depends on age, experience and scientific profile of the selected candidate. The Committee will make an offer depending on the vacancy and the experience and track record of the candidate.
The gross monthly salary of the assistant professor position (UD 2/UD 1) will be in accordance with the University regulations for academic personnel and will range from €3,475 up to a maximum of €5,405 (salary scale 11/12), based on a full-time appointment and depending on qualifications and on the number of years of professional experience. The Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities is applicable.
There are also secondary benefits, such as 8% holiday allowance per year and the end of year allowance of 8.3%.
Among other things, we offer:
English is the working language within the Informatics Institute. Moreover, since Amsterdam is a very international city where almost everybody speaks and understands English, you need not be afraid of the language barrier.
