Our faculty target their academic output primarily in the most-selective, academically prestigious venues. We want our faculty striving to create research outputs that advance thinking and scholarship in the core research areas, and also seeking real-world impact in the integrative research domains in “the world of business”.

We offer extremely attractive salary and benefits that are usually superior to international competitive benchmarks.



We are continually on the lookout for outstanding faculty candidates at all levels:

  • Fresh Ph.D. graduates
  • Postdocs looking for a faculty position
  • Ph.D. holders who are currently in industry but want to return to faculty and research work
  • Mid-career or senior faculty

Tenure track faculty must have Ph.D. qualification in a relevant discipline (such as Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Information Technology) along with an outstanding research record.
