The Informatics Institute (IvI) is seeking a tenure track assistant professor focused on the intersection of artificial intelligence and data engineering.
You will be joining the newly formed INtelligent Data Engineering Lab (INDE Lab). The lab's broad aim is to tackle problems relating to the preparation, management, integration and reuse of data using empirical insights into data science practice. The lab is situated within Amsterdam’s larger data science and artificial intelligence ecosystem (e.g. amsterdamdatascience.nl, icai.ai) and values practice-informed and interdisciplinary research and outreach.
We strongly encourage applications coming from a unique perspective. Tell us how your background fits with the aims of the lab even if your profile is slightly different from the profile / requirements written below.
The new assistant professor is expected to contribute not only to the development of the research lab through world class research but also to the IvI's education program. The program includes bachelor's and masters’ programs in information science, data science and artificial intelligence. Teaching will be approximately 30% of the total allocated time for the function (38 hours per week).
Additionally, you will be expected to acquire your own funding from sources such as the national funding agency NWO, EU funding via H2020 and industry. Finally, contributions to outreach, both in terms of engaging with the media as well as applying the state of the art research tools to applications in society are valued. UvA spinoffs that bring technology to industry and society are highly encouraged.
The successful candidate will have a background in database systems, natural language processing, information science or artificial intelligence. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to): automated knowledge base construction, information integration, semi-structured/semantic data management, and machine learning for data
The profile we are looking for:
International research experience is preferred as is a highly collaborative and enthusiastic approach.
For more information about the position, please contact:
It is a temporary appointment (5 years) with a tenure track agreement. During this period the candidate should show his/her competence in science and teaching/education. In the fifth year of the appointment, the tenure decision will be taken. This implies that you will be offered a permanent position after a positive assessment and evaluation.
The type of appointment depends on experience and scientific profile of the selected candidate. The Committee will make an offer pending the vacancy and the experience and track record of the candidate.
The full-time gross monthly salary of the assistant professor position (UD 2/UD 1 in the Dutch system) will be in accordance with the University of Amsterdam’s regulations for academic personnel and will range from €3,637 to €5,656 (salary scale 11/12) depending on qualifications and on the number of years of professional experience. The Collective Labour Agreement (Cao) of Dutch Universities is applicable. There are also secondary benefits, such as 8% holiday allowance per year and the end of year allowance of 8,3%. A favourable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants.
