The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems is seeking qualified applicants for one full time tenure track faculty position at the levels of Associate or Full Professor (The Finnish title of the positions are “yliopistotutkija” and “professori”) in Information Systems. Starting date is 1/2015 or later 2015. The department will give the preference to fill the position at the level of Associate Professor.
Deadline: 19th of October, 2014.
For all positions, candidates must have a Ph.D. in IS or a closely related discipline, and a demonstrated capability for research excellence and high quality teaching. The selected candidates will be expected to publish in the Basket of 6 IS journals, such as MISQ, ISR, JAIS, JMIS, EJIS and ISJ, and/or the best Software Engineering journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering. The candidates are expected to acquire external research funding, and teach as well as supervise students at all levels: bachelor, master’s and doctoral. The strategy of the department is to be a leading IS institution in Europe by combining practical relevance (e.g., co-operation with companies) with strong research orientation. The candidate must have a research profile and such a level of ambition that support the goals of the department.
For the position at the level of Associate Professor, Ph.D. in IS or related field is necessary. When considering applicants for the position at the level of Associate Professor, emphasis will be placed on two aspects. First, candidate’s publication record in publishing leading IS journals, such as those listed in the AIS senior scholar basket of 6/8 journals. Publications on the best journals of the related disciplines, such as IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, are also taken into account. The second consideration is the candidate’s future potential to publish research in leading Information Systems journals. The teaching load is attractive: one to three courses per academic year. Evidence for external research funding, which has led to high quality publications and doctoral theses, is viewed as a merit. Moreover, successful supervision of doctoral students to the completion is also regarded as a merit for the position. The Associate Professor is expected to supervise Master’s and Ph.D. students and co-operate with other faculty members as well as local companies.
In order to qualify for the position of a Professor, the candidate has to have internationally exceptional merits at the level of full professor. The candidate must have a track record of successful research publications in top IS journals. The candidate must have demonstrated evidence on the leadership and demonstrated capability for high quality teaching at all levels: bachelor, master’s and doctoral training.
Evidence for external research funding, which has led to high quality publications and doctoral theses, is viewed as a merit.
