Applications are invited for four full-time tenure-track positions, subject to 
final budgetary approval, at the Assistant Professor level, commencing January 
1, 1999 or as soon as possible thereafter. Minimum qualifications a Ph.D. in 
Computer Science or allied discipline, complete or nearing completion, and 
evidence of a strong research potential in computer science. Prior teaching 
experience will be considered an asset.  A Faculty of Science startup research 
grant will be awarded to all newly appointed faculty members.

For one of these positions, applicants are principally sought in the area of 
theoretical computer science, though ability to teach in a breadth of areas 
will be considered an asset.  For the remaining positions, applicants are 
principally sought in the areas of software engineering, programming languages 
and compilers, operating systems, networks, and parallel systems, though truly 
outstanding candidates in other areas may be considered.  Duties will include 
undergraduate and graduate teaching and supervision, research, and service-
related activities.  

The Department currently has 23 full time tenure track faculty members and a 
number of sessional appointments, and offers a full range of both 
undergraduate and graduate programmes, including cooperative programmes.  We 
currently have over sixty graduate students.

The Department is a well-established one which has recently been in an 
expansionary phase. Both the undergraduate and graduate curricula have been 
extensively revised and extended. The Department provides good technical 
support for both teaching and research.  Current and planned departmental 
facilities include numerous UNIX based Workstations, a parallel computing 
laboratory, a software development and testing laboratory, and numerous other 
research laboratories and personal machines, all of which are networked. The 
Department has well equipped UNIX and object-oriented teaching labs. The 
university Computer Centre provides virtually unlimited access to UNIX based 
workstations and other personal and mainframe computing facilities, as well as 
Internet connections. This is an excellent opportunity for good researchers 
and teachers to get in on the ground floor of an exciting Department.

Winnipeg has a great deal to offer, both culturally and recreationally, with a 
number of professional and other ethnic arts groups, professional sports 
teams, and many opportunities nearby for all types of outdoor activities in 
all seasons.  The Winnipeg housing market is one of the most favourable in 
Canada to the home buyer.

The University of Manitoba encourages applications from qualified women and 
men, including members of visible minorities, aboriginal peoples, and persons 
with disabilities.  Priority consideration will be given to Canadian citizens 
and permanent residents.
