Call for Applications

The Department of Informatics of PUC-Rio invites applications for a full-time professor


position in all areas of Computer Science and at all levels of experience. Candidates
must have a Doctoral degree in Computer Science or any related field, demonstrate their
ability to perform independent scientific research at an international level, conduct high-
quality teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels, and be willing to engage in
the departamental life and administration. Since most of the teaching is conducted in
Portuguese, the candidate is expected to be able to teach in Portuguese by the second
semester.
Applicants with high potential for scientific research in the fields of Cyber-security,
Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Analytics are especially welcome.

PUC-Rio is a very prestigious private non-profit university and the graduate program at
the Department of Informatics is among the strongest in the country, having received the
highest grade from CAPES (CAPES Conceito 7), since this evaluation started in 2001.
The department’s faculty includes several professors that have graduated from or
worked at top international universities such as Harvard, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell,
Georgia Tech, TU Berlin, Université de Montréal, etc. Several of the faculty members are
pioneers and leaders in their research fields, and most of them are CNPq Research and
Innovation Fellows (Bolsista PQ and DTI). The relatively small size of the department
contributes to a supportive and collaborative environment. And the pleasant PUC-Rio
campus is located in Gávea, the neighborhood with Brazil’s highest Human Development
Index (IDH), and is very close to several natural beauties of the Cidade Maravilhosa,
Rio.

Interested candidates should send: (a) a Curriculum Vitae highlighting their most relevant
publications in the last 5 years, (b) 2-3 letters of recommendation and (c) a cover letter
stating your interest. Please send these materials to the email address diretor@inf.puc-
rio.br, preferable before February 28, 2020.

PS.: During this year and 2021, other professor-level vacancies will be open. Hence,
interested candidates should send your application even they are unable to start in the
2020.
