Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Human-Computer Interaction
University of Bath, Department of Computer Science
Salary: Starting from £38,511, rising to £45,954
Closing Date: Friday 16 October 2015
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath wishes to appoint an academic with an excellent track record, a strongly interdisciplinary outlook, and the clearly demonstrated potential to be an international leader in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
The Department’s research is structured in four groups: HCI, Computer Vision & Graphics, Intelligent Systems, and Mathematical Foundations. The HCI group at Bath is highly regarded internationally, very successful in research publication and grant capture, and collaborates extensively across the University and beyond. The post holder will be expected to conduct excellent research within the HCI group and to strengthen and develop the HCI group’s links to our other groups.
The £5 million EPSRC Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA) is an example of the existing interdisciplinary collaborations between the Department’s HCI and Vision & Graphics groups. Another example of our collaborations is the £11 million Centre for Digital Entertainment (CDE), in which Engineering Doctorate students are co-supervised by world-leading industrial researchers. The post holder will also be expected to engage actively with the CDE and our industrial partners.
Candidates will normally be expected to hold a PhD, and should be able to demonstrate an outstanding research record in HCI. The successful applicant will be expected to develop his or her own research funding portfolio from appropriate national and international sources and to carry out and supervise research in line with targets set by the Department.
The post holder will be expected to contribute to teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and should therefore be able to demonstrate a continuing commitment to maintaining the University’s high standards in teaching and learning, with the ability to educate and inspire some of the brightest students in the country.
The post holder will also be expected to contribute to the administration, leadership and management of the Department’s activities appropriate to the post.
Both the Department and the University are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive working environment. We are working to improve the gender balance within the Department and particularly welcome applications from women.
Interviews will be held week commencing 23 November 2015.
