College of Science and Engineering
Lecturer or Senior Lecturer or Reader in Image and Vision Computing
Lecturer grade: UE08 (£39,324 - £46,924)
Senior Lecturer or Reader grade: UE09 (£49,722 - £55,998)
Vacancy Ref: 037819
Applications are invited for a Lecturer to join the Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour, part of the School of Informatics, at The University of Edinburgh. For an exceptional candidate, appointment to the position of Senior Lecturer or Reader will be considered. Multiple positions may be available.
The Institute carries out research in Machine Vision, Graphics, and Robotics. It also has substantial cross links to the Institute of Adaptive and Neural Computation. Candidates with an interest in the computational neuroscience of vision, machine learning, or the application of computer vision to robotics and real time sensing are particularly encouraged to apply; but applications in any area of Image and Vision computing will be considered.
The School of Informatics plays a leading role in the EPRSC Centres for Doctoral Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and in Data Science, with opportunities for the appointee to supervise PhD students from the Centres (and from other sources). In partnership with Heriot Watt University, we have recently established the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, with substantial infrastructure funding for robotic platforms and supporting facilities. The University of Edinburgh is also one of the five joint venture partner universities in the UK's The Alan Turing Institute for Data Science; this gives rise to opportunities to interact with PhD students, research fellows and senior researchers within The Alan Turing Institute. In addition, there are many opportunities to interact with other parts of the University and beyond in order to further the candidate's research agenda.
There will be a requirement to be involved in enhancing eLearning and online teaching initiatives.
This is a full-time, open-ended, appointment.
Closing date: 15 January 2017
Interviews will be held in Edinburgh in early 2017
