Five Tenure track Positions in Software Engineering – All levels: Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor

Job Description

The M3S (Empirical Software Engineering in Software, Systems and Services) research unit ( in the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE, at the University of Oulu, Finland, is offering five tenure track positions at the assistant, associate, and full professor levels based on the qualifications. Review of the applications will begin on November 30, 2017. The positions will remain open until filled.

The tenure track positions are in software engineering at the University of Oulu focus area “Digital solutions in sensing and interactions” ( We see Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, 5G and other evolving communication technologies as the key drivers of digitalization all heavily based on software. In this context, we anticipate future information infrastructures to consist of large numbers of wireless sensors and environment embedded intelligent user interfaces, resulting in intertwined real and virtual worlds. These developments challenge software engineering due its increasing role in massive distributed heterogeneous systems. This calls for novel methods and tools for designing and managing intelligent software and systems. Special attention is required to empirical validation of these methods and tools in realistic use in order to guarantee the impact of research contributions.

M3S and the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering offer excellent cooperation opportunities with world-class research units on software engineering, sensing, embedded technologies, wireless communications, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, data-intensive services, and human-machine interaction. Moreover, M3S and the faculty have a long tradition in generating research impact through close collaboration with companies. There are hundreds of ICT companies in the Oulu Region, including numerous university spin-offs. An agile large scale research to business model ( and company cooperation ecosystems (, are also accessible to researchers.

Successful applicants will carry out their research and education in the broad area of software engineering, including but not limited to:

Empirical software engineering
Artificial Intelligence
Novel software-based solutions in AI, IoT, 5G and data analytics
Embedded and distributed software intensive systems
Automotive software engineering
Software and system architectures
Requirements engineering
Software testing
Agile software development
Software business
Software evolution and maintenance
Collaborative and distributed software engineering
Behavioural and human factors in software engineering
Mining software repositories
Software security and safety
In addition to conducting high quality international research, candidates at all levels are expected to actively participate in the teaching of the research unit as well as to strengthen research in the software engineering field. All candidates are also expected to be able to acquire national and international research funding.

The M3S research unit has a long tradition in industrial and international collaboration and has actively participated in large European research projects since the 1990s. Over 30% of the research unit comprises international members. Members of the research unit have published their research in leading software engineering journals and conferences, e.g., IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, IEEE Software, Empirical Software Engineering, Information and Software Technology, Journal of Systems and Software, and the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE).
