Assistant Professor (one position, full-time, corresponding to Maître de Conférences position)

Profile: Artificial Intelligence

The Computer Science department of Ecole Polytechnique considers hiring a full-time Assistant Professor in Artificial Intelligence in a broad sense. Teaching will take place in the Bachelor program, in the Ingénieur Polytechnicien Program or in the new Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Visual Computing Master program proposed by Ecole Polytechnique. Candidates are expected to outline their teaching experience in connection with the courses offered by the Computer Science department. 

The research activity will be carried out at one of the research groups of LIX, the Computer Science Laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique. Candidates are expected to show how their research could be integrated in one of our existing research teams of the LIX (e.g. computer graphics and vision, data science, verification and robotics, and algorithms, etc). The applicants are expected to have international scientific recognition, and demonstrate excellent teaching skills. Mastery of the French language is a plus, but is not essential.

We strongly encourage candidates to make contact with the research groups at LIX before a potential interview with the selection committee.

Gaspard Monge Assistant Professor (one position, full-time, tenure-track, at the French Maître de Conférences level)

Profile: Cyber-physical systems

The Computer Science department at Ecole Polytechnique considers hiring a full-time Assistant Professor in the framework of the Gaspard Monge program (that is, a tenure-track position of two consecutive three-year contracts). Applicants are junior researchers working in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) - distributed control systems, with applications to drones in particular - with a very high potential. She or he should be prepared to get involved in long-term educational and mentoring projects at Ecole polytechnique at any teaching level; and is expected to become co-director of the COMASIC Master program on CPS at Ecole polytechnique. Courses are expected to be given in English for some part of the teaching load.

The candidate must demonstrate their high scientific level, and their willingness to integrate their research within one of the research groups of the Computer Science laboratory (LIX) in a theme linked with CPS, such as the Cosynus team in particular, but also teams such as Epizeuxis (Networks), Alco (Algorithms), or Comète (Distributed Systems). 

Applicants will be junior researchers having international recognition in their field and demonstrate excellent teaching skills. If not already obtained, it is expected that the applicant will defend his/her habilitation thesis within a couple of years after his/her hiring.

We encourage candidates to make contact with at least one of these teams before an eventual interview with the selection committee.
