Details and application link:

The School of Computing & Communications, based in the iconic InfoLab21 facility, is an international centre of excellence in research and teaching.  The 2014 Research Excellence Framework ranked us 12th overall in the UK for Computer Science, and 7th in the UK for producing work that is world-leading or internationally excellent.  The School’s research spans areas such as Communications Systems, Computer Networking, Software Engineering and Human-Computer Interaction.  The School is also strategically growing its activity in CyberSecurity, Data Science and Digital Health.  Regarding teaching excellence, the School received the highest award in the most recent Periodic Quality Review with particular commendation for innovative design and delivery of courses.

The School wishes to appoint a Lecturer in the Interactive Systems research group. We are looking for an individual who has outstanding competences in any area of HCI technology that is complementary to our existing portfolio. We are, for example (but not exclusively!), interested in machine learning for HCI, interaction enabled by advances in computer vision, perceptual user interfaces, and interactive visualisation.

Interactive Systems is a vibrant research field in the School in which we draw on multidisciplinary expertise to develop new knowledge and enabling technology for HCI. The group has strong roots in mobile and ubiquitous computing, long-standing experience in sensors and devices for interaction with the new landscapes of ‘computers’ in different sizes, shapes, contexts and embodiments, and new interests especially in human interaction with data and media at unprecedented scales.

We expect you to have outstanding technical expertise in a relevant area of HCI technology and a clear track record of achievement and publication at the top of your field. You must have a compelling vision for taking your research forward to have significant impact, and you should have a strong motivation to advance your research through working collaboratively across research fields.

In line with the School ethos, the lectureship requires excellence in research and teaching. You will be expected to help expand our research including securing research funding, and to deliver high-quality teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The School offers a highly inclusive and stimulating environment for career development.  We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research.

You are strongly encouraged to contact Professor Hans Gellersen to discuss research fields and to learn more about our research group and the School’s research environment, email

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
