Job: Faculty position in Computer Vision, Graphics and/or HCI at University of Bath

Faculty position in Computer Vision, Graphics and/or HCI at University of Bath

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath wishes to appoint an academic with a strong interdisciplinary outlook and the clearly demonstrated potential to be internationally leading in one or more of Computer Vision, Graphics and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

The post holder will join the Vision and Graphics group or the HCI group, depending on the research focus of the successful candidate. In either case, the post holder will be expected to strengthen existing and create new links between the groups. The Vision and Graphics group at Bath has broad interests bound together by the contemporary movement of vision and graphics convergence. The HCI group is similarly broad, covering the spectrum of HCI research. Both groups are very active, regularly publishing in leading venues, holding large grants and with outstanding links to industry.

The post holder will work closely with colleagues in the £5 million EPSRC Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA). CAMERA is recruiting a large number of post-doctoral researchers and PhD students to tackle challenges in motion analysis across entertainment, sport and rehabilitation. CAMERA is an excellent example of the effective collaborations between the Department’s Vision & Graphics and HCI groups, with colleagues in Health and Sports Science, and with industry. Partners include leading companies such as The Imaginarium, The Foundry and BMT. For an introduction to CAMERA, see: http://techspark.co/5-million-motion-capture-studio-to-be-launched-in-bath/

The post holder will also engage with the Centre for Digital Entertainment, in which Engineering Doctorate students are co-supervised by world-leading companies.

Candidates will normally be expected to hold a PhD, and should be able to demonstrate an outstanding research record in Computer Vision, Graphics or HCI. The successful applicant will be expected to develop a research funding portfolio from national and international sources and to conduct and supervise research in line with targets set by the Department.

The post holder will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and should 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.

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.
