Founded in 2022, INSAIT’s mission is to become a world-class computer science and AI research institution and it recently became an ELLIS unit (https://ellis.eu/units/sofia). INSAIT is structured similarly to top U.S. and European research institutions (tenure-track and tenured faculty positions, PhD duration, etc.). It also provides outstanding working conditions, in terms of facilities, packages, resources, and salaries.
Tenure-track faculty positions: starting at 100,000 EUR per annum + signing bonus.
Tenured faculty positions: starting at 150,000 EUR per annum + signing bonus.
*Note that Bulgaria has a flat tax rate of 10%.
We welcome excellent faculty applicants in all areas of artificial intelligence, both tenure-track faculty as well as tenured researchers. Faculty duties involve supervision of doctoral students as well as (optionally) teaching a graduate course in the specialty area of the candidate. Opportunities to supervise B.Sc. and M.Sc. theses are also possible due to INSAIT being well integrated with the local university.

– have earned a Ph.D. in computer science or closely related areas by the start of the position;

Applications must include a curriculum vitae (CV), a research statement (up to 5 pages) and a teaching statement (up to 2 pages).
