The St.Petersburg State University invites applications for a full-time position of Associate Professor (Docent) in
Mathematical Logic and Theoretical Computer Science
for advanced teaching within the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
This position includes teaching both in Russian and in English.
The undergraduate program in Mathematics and TCS is very selective, with students being some of the best in the world. In particular, every year more winners of the all-Russian mathematical Olympiad are joining our program than any other similar program in Russia. The department has also graduate programs. The well-known Chebyshev Laboratory (http://chebyshev.spbu.ru/en/) is a part of our new Department.
Applicants are expected to have a strong research record and to be able to teach both in Russian and in English. Appointees are expected to carry out research of high level, to teach well, and to perform customary administrative duties such as advising students, participating in committees, organizing admissions, etc. The teaching load is up to 8 academic hours (= 6 astronomic hours) per week.
The salary level for this position is 189,471 rub. per month. Initial contract is normally signed for a period of up to five years, and can be renewed by further 5 year terms.
