Job Vacancy for Lecturer in Computer Science
School of Computing and Communications
Salary: £32,267 to £44,607
Closing Date: Monday 13 May 2013
Interview Date: To be confirmed
Lancaster's School of Computing and Communications is a world-class research-led school that comprises around 40 academic staff, with ~100 PhD students and researchers. Our research spans computer communications/networking/distributed systems, software engineering, and human-computer interaction; and engages with a wide range of application domains including cyber-security, social computing, transport, energy and health. We have been well-known since the 80's for a 'systems' approach to research, and a philosophy of connecting strongly to industry and the real world; for instance in research involving large-scale testbeds. Teaching is equally important to us, and we expect all our staff to be committed teachers and to contribute to the development of our portfolio of courses, including those involving our international teaching partnerships.
As part of an investment programme that has already seen us appoint to eight new academic posts since 2012, we now wish to appoint to a Lecturership in one of the following areas: i) big data (all aspects of acquiring/ mining/analysing/visualising huge-scale data sets, typically in association with emerging application domains such as social computing or cyber security); ii) human-computer interaction (indicative areas would be multimodal/intelligent interaction with crowds/robots/big data); or iii) computer networking/distributed systems (e.g. resilience/security in networks, next-generation Internet, software-defined networking, cloud computing, embedded distributed systems).
We invite applications from candidates who can demonstrate significant promise in research in one of the above areas (please specify which area), and a strong record of achievement in their career to date. Salary will range from £32,267 to £44,607 depending on achievements and experience to date.
For further information we invite you to contact the Head of School (Prof. Geoff Coulson) for an informal discussion firstname.lastname@example.org +44(0)1524 510306.
