TU Delft Computer Science is Hiring!

Studying Computer Science at Delft University of Technology has become immensely popular: our student numbers have shown double digit growth for seven years in a row, with record enrollments expected for 2018/2019.

To handle this demand in computer science education, we have a number of exciting teaching-related vacancies available:

Together with our current faculty, it will be your job to help educate future generations of computer scientists using the latest teaching methods.

The faculty’s main educational programs in computer science include a three-year bachelor programme in Computer Science and Engineering, a two-year master program in Computer Science (with main tracks in Software Technology and Data Science & Technology) and a two-year master program in Embedded Systems. The faculty offers a recently renewed minor in the third bachelor year for non-computer science students of Delft University of Technology in the area of Software Design & Data Science. Through its participation in EdX, the faculty offers a series of highly successful computer science MOOCs. All programmes are lectured in English.

Bachelor courses have enrollments of hundreds of students. Such courses are lectured by a teaching team, including professors, educators, and up to 30 teaching assistants. Master-level courses are typically lectured in smaller groups of up to 100 students, and are closely related to research carried out in the Computer Science Departments. Both the bachelor and the master are concluded with an individual research thesis (of 15 and 45 credit points, respectively).

The faculty’s research in computer science is internationally leading and conducted in the departments of Software Technology and Intelligent Systems. The two departments consist of in total 11 sections, which together are active in all core disciplines of computer science. Furthermore, the faculty conducts research in various themes that crosscut disciplines and other faculties, such as data science, cyber-security, blockchain, and Internet of Things.

To ensure continued high quality research and education, the faculty is in the process of strengthening its Computer Science Teaching Team. Responsibilities of the teaching team include supporting all bachelor-level education, co-teaching selected courses, managing a group of around 150 teaching assistants, supporting educational innovation, and blending on line and on campus education. Teaching team members with research responsibilities will also be attached to one of the research sections of the faculty. All teaching staff has the opportunity follow teaching training, leading to a University Teaching Qualification (UTQ).

Screening of applications will begin April 3, 2018 and will continue until all required positions are filled.

The anticipated starting date for all positions is as soon as possible. Interested applicants are advised to apply as early as possible. A trial lecture (except for the educational software developers) will be part of the interview.

To apply, follow the procedure as described in the vacancies: For further information, feel free to contact me. We look forward to your application!!
