The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Montefiore Institute)
At the School of engineering and computer science of the University of Liège, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)offers several programs to undergraduate and graduate students. Since the end of the 19th century, it has developed a leading edge tradition in teaching and research in a range of basic and applied topics in various areas of Information and Communication Technologies, Computer Science, Electronics, Power Systems and Applied Mathematics, and it targets its efforts to contribute in application fields of societal importance, such as biomedical engineering, materials, energy systems, information systems, robotics, and transportation.
The department has a long-standing tradition of international recruitment at the Faculty level, and organizes all its Master's programs in English.
Description of the position
The new faculty member will join the EECS department and develop research in the design and applications of parallel and distributed computing systems, with a focus on one or several of the following areas: distributed architectures such as cloud/fog/edge/p2p computing, parallel and distributed algorithms, appropriate programming languages, safety and performance modelling and analysis.
He/she will also take part in the teaching activities in computer science and computer engineering, both at the undergraduate (Bachelor) and graduate (Master) levels, e.g. on computation structures, databases, parallel programming, and distributed systems.
The selected candidate will be appointed either for a tenured position, or for a 4-year tenure track with a possibility of tenuring after 3 years.
