The Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa is establishing a multi-disciplinary set of CrossLabs (http://www.dii.unipi.it/crosslab/) funded by a five year € 9.3M grant from the Italian Ministry for University and Scientific Research (MIUR) in the framework of the ‘Departments of Excellence’ program.
The Department invites expressions of interest from qualified scholars in the field of Computer Engineering in view of the opening of a faculty position as Associate Professor, aimed at the development of the planned activities of the ‘Cloud Computing, Big Data and Cybersecurity’ CrossLab.
The Department is mainly interested in seeking candidates with a significant scientific experience in the research and development of technologies and architectures for systems and applications at the intersection between Cloud Computing, Big Data and Cybersecurity, with specific emphasis on the Industry 4.0 application domain. The Department is open however to consider candidates with research interests in other topics yet in the field of Computer Engineering.
The ideal candidate should have a strong record of accomplishment in research, with publications in leading peer-reviewed journals and conferences, as well as demonstrated capabilities in fund-raising from national and EU sources. A Ph.D. in a relevant field of study is required. Teaching experience at the undergraduate and post‐graduate levels is mandatory, as well as an excellent level of English knowledge (both oral and written).
The successful candidate is expected to play a key role in the setting up and development of the ‘Cloud Computing, Big Data and Cybersecurity’ CrossLab. Regular duties include an annual teaching load of about 120 class hours, split between undergraduate and master courses, and tutoring activities for a total amount of 350 hours. If not held already, the successful candidate is expected to achieve adequate Italian fluency for teaching courses in this language within two years from the start of their appointment. Service for the Department includes mentoring master and PhD students, as well as carrying some administrative duties, commensurate to the rank.
Associate Professor is a permanent, tenured position. The minimum gross amount per year of the salary is € 51K. The net income will depend on several elements including income taxes, local taxes, and tax exemptions depending on the family structure. Economic incentives are further planned within the ‘De-partments of Excellence’ program.
