Assistant/Associate Professor in Computer Architecture

University of Cambridge - Department of Computer Science and Technology

Location: Cambridge
Salary: £58,284 to £61,823
Hours: Full Time

Closes: 5th December 2022
Job Ref: NR33472

The Department of Computer Science and Technology is seeking to recruit a new faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level who can contribute to research and teaching in the area of Computer Architecture.

Computer architecture has entered a new golden age as the abundant transistor count provided by Moore's Law gets harnessed not just for faster general-purpose microprocessors, but for specialised accelerators able to deliver fast and energy-efficient computation for specific workloads.  Computer architecture is also at the forefront of other cross-cutting issues in computer science, such as security, reliability, power efficiency and sustainability, and interacts with other areas of the subject, such as compilers and operating systems.  In addition, upcoming technologies, such as quantum computing and machine learning, provide exciting future research challenges in their development as well as integration and replacement of existing systems.

We invite applications from candidates performing ground-breaking and internationally leading research in computer architecture and related areas. For example, covering one or more of the following topics: Heterogeneous architectures and accelerators for current and emerging applications; Processing at all scales, from embedded devices and IoT to datacenters; Novel computing paradigms, such as quantum computing or computing with post-CMOS technologies; Multidisciplinary research across the stack, such as OS, compilers and virtualization; Secure, dependable, and sustainable computing.

The ideal candidate for this position will have a strong international track record of publication and impact commensurate with their research area and experience.  They will have the ability, or potential, to secure research funding to support their research vision and build a world-class team of researchers.  We welcome applications from researchers with interdisciplinary interests who will collaborate with people across different subdisciplines in Computer Science and Technology and with other academic disciplines.  Collaborations outside academia are also highly-valued, including with industry and third-sector organizations. 

Candidates will be excellent communicators and will be committed to the teaching of both undergraduate and Master's courses.  They will also be expected to supervise research at Masters and PhD level. 

Please see the Further Particulars for details of expectations of research, teaching and other aspects of the role. 

The appointment will be from 1 September 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Interested applicants are encouraged to make informal enquiries about the post to Professor Simon Moore, Simon.Moore@cst.cam.ac.uk

Interviews will be held in Cambridge on 6 and  7  March 2023. 

Please ensure you upload the following documents:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • A complete list of publications
  • Covering letter including a 2-4 page summary of your research interest and future plans, and of your teaching experience.

You should also provide the contact details of three referees. If you upload any additional documents which have not been requested, we will not be able to consider these as part of your application.
