Lectureship in Computer Science

We seek applications for a lectureship in Computer Science. We welcome applications from excellent researchers who are keen to cooperate with others within the School and in other Schools of the University. While exceptional individuals in all areas will be considered, we are especially interested in the broad area of data-intensive research, with emphasis on data science, machine learning, data management, data mining, open science, and sensing and sensor interpretation. Specifically, we are interested in appointing someone who would actively contribute to and collaborate widely within, the recently launched Institute for Data Intensive Research, developing and applying cutting edge Computer Science techniques for applications in a wide range of research areas.

You should have a PhD, a period of postdoctoral experience and an outstanding research record as demonstrated by publications and research funding. You must be willing to cooperate with other researchers across the School and University and to teach in any area of Computer Science. Teaching is important to us and you should be a committed teacher, with appropriate experience.

Candidates interested in this post are welcome to informally contact the Head of School (Steve Linton hos-cs@st-andrews.ac.uk) to discuss possible options. For informal discussion on IDIR, please contact Professor Simon Dobson simon.dobson@st-andrews.ac.uk. We would welcome interaction with any established groups wishing to move to St Andrews.
