The Department of Computer Science at Aston University, UK is advertising the following lectureship and seeking applications from motivated, enthusiastic candidates in the field of Information Visualisation.
Lecturer in Computer Science
Engineering & Applied Science
£31,656 to £46,414 per annum
Friday 16 September 2016
Monday 10 October 2016
Aston University School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) is consistently ranked as one of the top Universities in the UK for engineering-related disciplines. Our research strengths are concentrated in selected areas, are often multidisciplinary in nature and are designed to develop solutions to practical problems.
This appointment will strengthen the expanding research and teaching activities of the Computer Science Subject Group at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We intend to appoint a Lecturer to develop further the research in the System Analysis Research Institute (SARI -http://www.aston.ac.uk/eas/research/groups/institute-of-systems-analytics/), particularly in the field of Information Visualisation. We are seeking a dynamic lecturer who approaches information visualisation research from a human-computer interaction (HCI) perspective and who is, therefore, capable of contributing equally to the HCI research group (based on practical familiarity with HCI methodologies and philosophies) and to SARI. Ideally, you will have experience of multidisciplinary research in which information visualisation and HCI approaches have been applied to real world, practical problems.
You will have a relevant PhD and be capable of making significant contributions to our research activities, including the attraction of external research funding. All our Computer Science staff are fully integrated in delivering our mainstream computing programmes at undergraduate and graduate levels and you will be expected to deliver excellence in your teaching as well as developing your research profile. You will also supervise undergraduate and postgraduate projects and engage with external individuals and groups, such as contributing to summer schools and other outreach activities.
We would particularly like to encourage applications from women seeking to progress their academic careers.
