About the department
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is a joint department at both Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. Around 90 faculty members and 120 PhD students, hailing from around 40 different countries, are engaged in research and education across the full spectrum of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, and interaction design, from foundations to applications. The department is organized into four academic divisions:
• Computer and Network Systems
• Computing Science
• Data Science and AI
• Interaction Design and Software Engineering.
Our offer to you
The position is a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor and full-time permanent employment at the rank of Associate Professor.
At Chalmers we seek to establish a good work/life balance. We want to provide you with the means to pick the best path possible in your pursuit of making a difference. Our ambitions in this area are reflected in the generous employment conditions, including:
• holiday allowance of up to 7 weeks per year
• a collective agreement including parental pay, sick pay supplement, and medicine costs
• a wellness allowance towards activities promoting good health
• flexible working conditions
Sweden’s extensive social welfare system means, for example, that you are entitled to 390 days of paid parental leave, and education at all levels is free.
Chalmers offers courses in the Swedish language. Although most of our work is in English, and English is widely spoken throughout Swedish society, developing a good knowledge of Swedish is an advantage in everyday life and in the workplace, and we offer to help you unlock this dimension of life in Sweden.
