    Employee
  • Job Status
    Full Time

Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees due to retirement among our current staff and an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!

The department of Electrical Engineering (ISY) is central to the engineering education at the Institute of Technology, one of four faculties at Linköping University, and this regards both basic and applied knowledge. The research is based on industrial needs, and ranges from basic research to direct application in collaboration projects.

LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
hereby advertises a position as

Professor in Systems Architectures for Autonomous Systems


formally based at the division of Computer Engineering at the Department of Electrical Engineering

Description of the subject area
Linköping University is looking for a full professor in Systems Architectures for Autonomous Systems. The position is an initiative within the national Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP, http://www.wasp-sweden.org). WASP is Sweden’s largest ever individual research program, and provides a platform for academic research and education, fostering interaction with Sweden’s leading technology companies. The program addresses research on autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems. Software is the main enabler in autonomous systems, and is an integrated research theme of the program. WASP’s key value is Research excellence in autonomous systems and software for the benefit of Swedish industry.

The primary focus of the present position is design and analysis of networked digital hardware systems involving sensing, processing, storage and communication of information. This includes hardware/software co-design approaches with a strong connection between the algorithms and the associated programmable hardware, as well as research on new system architectures that enable and support, e.g., learning and adaptation. Autonomous systems developed using such digital systems are typically heterogeneous, distributed and with a mix of synchronous and asynchronous components embedded in other systems, e.g. vehicles, machines or consumer products. Communication can be wired or wireless. The system topology may range from a static architecture with a fixed set of physical processing, sensing, and communication elements to self-modifying ad-hoc networks of lightly coupled elements. The nature of autonomous systems often imposes constraints on power consumption, flexibility, adaptability, resilience, safety and security in addition to other non-functional requirements.

While autonomous systems typically involve also e.g. software, mechanics, electronics and sensors the focus of the present position is digital hardware and systems software for information processing, storage and communication.

Duties
The duties assigned to teaching staff may comprise educational responsibilities or research, and administrative tasks. Teachers are also responsible for monitoring developments within their subject areas and developments in the wider community that are significant to their role as a teacher at a higher education institution. The holder of the appointment will participate in teaching at undergraduate, advanced and research levels.

The successful candidate is expected to engage fully in the overall goals and objectives of WASP. This entails taking part in WASP clusters (see the WASP home page, http://www.wasp-sweden.org), joint WASP activities including the Autonomous Research Arenas (WARA) as well as supervising WASP PhD students and Post docs. Subject to decision by WASP the position comes with a substantial recruitment package including full funding for the new professor to recruit two PhD candidates (four years each) and 2 post docs (2 years each). The PhD candidates will take part in the highly attractive national WASP Graduate School that started in early 2016 and currently includes about 100 PhD candidates from academy and industry.

The holder of the position is also expected to take the role as scientific leader for the division of Computer Engineering within the Department of Electrical Engineering. The division presently performs teaching and research on processor architectures and logic design including digital logic, different kinds of processors, multiple processors, and system on chip integration from job analysis on high system level down to RTL or gate micro architecture level of VLSI implementations. The present research of the group focuses on embedded systems for computation and control, from systems architecture via processors to arithmetic circuits, algorithm-hardware co-design, and programming, realization, and integration of the architectures. The successful applicant should also engage in education and supervision of students in our engineering programs.

For this position, the languages of instruction will be Swedish and English.

Qualifications
As grounds for assessment when appointing a professor, the level of proficiency required to qualify for the appointment shall apply.

Grounds for assessment
Applicant assessment will be based on the level of proficiency that is required for the appointment as professor.

As much attention shall be given to the assessment of teaching proficiency as to the assessment of scientific proficiency.

For this position special weight is given to scholarly proficiency, and research leadership. Special attention will be paid to the candidate’s international experience and networks.

Next, pedagogical proficiency will be taken into account. In addition, regard will be given to administrative capability and the ability to lead and develop staff. 

Scholarly proficiency must have been demonstrated through: original research resulting in publication, through planning and managing research and third-cycle courses and study programmes and through the ability to obtain research grants Scholarly proficiency can also be demonstrated through the ability to achieve results in research through collaboration with other teachers and through the ability to provide information about research.

Teaching proficiency is demonstrated through the ability to convey relevant knowledge and skills, to stimulate students such that they drive their own learning process, to create engagement and interest in the subject area, and the ability to structure and organise both the content and forms of work in relation to the goals of the subject area. In addition, the teaching proficiency must have been demonstrated through the ability to contribute to the development and renewal of education and the ability to reflect on their own attitude to education and the results of their work.

Administrative proficiency and leadership must have been demonstrated through the ability to plan, organise and develop activities and personnel.

The applicant should show an ability to teach in Swedish or English.

Form of employment
Full time, until further notice.

Starting date
By agreement.

Salary
