The Institute for Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Technology (INSAIT), created in partnership with Switzerland’s ETH Zurich and EPFL and Bulgaria’s Sofia University, seeks candidates for faculty positions starting immediately, or on a mutually agreed date thereafter.

Founded in 2022 and located in Sofia, Bulgaria, INSAIT’s mission is to become a world-class computer science and artificial intelligence research institution. As such, INSAIT is structured similarly to top graduate U.S. and European institutions and provides outstanding working conditions, in terms of facilities, packages and salaries.

We welcome excellent faculty applicants in all areas of computer science and artificial intelligence, both tenure-track faculty as well as tenured researchers. Faculty duties involve supervision of graduate students as well as teaching graduate courses. Opportunities to supervise B.Sc. and M.Sc. dissertations are also possible due to INSAIT being well integrated with the local university.

To be eligible for this position candidates should:

  • have earned a Ph.D. in computer science or closely related areas by the start of the position.
  • demonstrate evidence they are able to pursue a strong and independent research program.
  • have a strong commitment to teaching graduate courses.

Applications must include a curriculum vitae (CV), a research statement (up to 5 pages) and a teaching statement (up to 2 pages). Further, the application should provide the names and email addresses of three or more referees. The referees should be professionally established researchers who know the candidate well, both academically and personally. It is the responsibility of the candidate to arrange reference letters to be sent to

Applications received before January 15, 2023 will be assured full consideration; however, we will continue accepting applications until the positions are filled.
