前沿计算科学中心(CFCS)简介

Tenure-track or Tenured Faculty Positions, Center of Frontier Computing Science, Peking University


The Center of Frontier Computing Science (CFCS), Peking University (PKU), China, is a university new initiative co-founded by Professors John Hopcroft (Turing Awardee) and Wen Gao (CNE, ACM/IEEE Fellow). The center aims at developing the excellence on two fronts: research and education. 


On the research front, the center will provide a world-class research environment for faculty member development, where innovation and impactful research is the central aim, measured by professional reputation among world scholars, not by counting the number of publications and research funding. 


On the education front, the center hosts the Turing Class (图灵班), an elite undergraduate program that draws the cream of the crop from the PKU undergraduate talent pool. New curriculum and pedagogy are designed and practiced in this program, with the aim to cultivate a new generation of computer scientist/engineers that are solid in both theories and practices. 




Positions and Qualification


The center invites applications for tenured/tenure-track faculty positions. We are seeking applicants from all areas of Computer Science, spanning theoretical foundations, systems, software, and applications, with special interests in artificial intelligence and machine learning. We are especially interested in applicants conducting research at the frontiers of Computer Science with other disciplines, such as data sciences, engineering, as well as mathematical, medical, physical, and social sciences.


Applicants are expected to have completed (or becompleting) a Ph.D., have demonstrated the ability to pursue a program of research, and have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. A successful candidate will be expected to teach one to two courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in each semester, and to build and lead a team of undergraduate and graduate students in innovative research.


We are also seeking qualified candidates for postdoctoral positions. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline or expect a Ph.D within a year, with a substantive record of research accomplishments, and the ability to work collaboratively with faculty members in the center.


Salary and Benefits


All newly hired faculty members will be provided with necessary startup resource and research infrastructures. Salaries and benefits are internationally competitive and are to be individually negotiated in each case, commensurate with the candidate’s academic credentials. 

 

To Apply:

Applicants should send a full curriculum vita; copies of 3-5 key publications; three to five names and contact information of references; and a statement of research and teaching to,

Professor Yizhou Wang at Yizhou.Wang@pku.edu.cn

CC Professors John Hopcroft at jeh@cs.cornell.edu, and Wen Gao at wgao@pku.edu.cn.


Application for a postdoctoral position should include acurriculum vita, brief statement of research, and three to five names and contact information of recommendation, and can be directly addressed to an individual faculty member.


We conduct review of applications monthly, immediately upon the recipient of all application materials at the beginning of each month. However, it is highly recommended that applicants submit complete applications sooner rather than later, as the positions are to be filled quickly.
