D49611A - Lecturer in Computing Science (Cyber-Physical Systems)

Newcastle University - Faculty of Science, Agriculture & Engineering - Computing Science

This Lectureship provides a significant opportunity for a motivated and productive individual to develop their research and teaching career within a successful and supportive environment.

You will join the research group in Advanced Model-based Engineering and Reasoning (AMBER), which develops well-founded methods and tools for the design and verification of concurrent, distributed and Cyber-Physical Systems. AMBER is part of the School of Computing Science – one of the best-funded computer science departments in the UK, ranked first in the UK for the economic and societal impact of its research.

You will have a PhD in Computer Science or a related field. We are particularly interested in candidates specialising in cyber-physical systems, to help lead our initiatives on model-based CPS design and verification. In 2017, the School moves to a new £58m purpose-built building for multidisciplinary research and teaching, including a CPS Lab, giving you the opportunity to develop new lines of collaborative CPS research alongside smart grid, transport, urban systems and sustainability laboratories.

Expertise in your field should be matched by proven potential to deliver high quality in both research and teaching. You should be actively interested in achieving the maximum impact for your work and demonstrate strong communications skills.

Appointment will always be made on merit.

Prospective applicants are invited to discuss the post informally with the Head of School, Professor Aad van Moorsel (aad.vanmoorsel@ncl.ac.uk), +44 191-208-7711, or the leader of the CPS Lab, Professor John Fitzgerald (john.fitzgerald@ncl.ac.uk).

Newcastle University values diversity and is committed to recruiting and supporting staff and students from all sectors of society. The School holds a bronze Athena SWAN award in addition to the University’s Silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality, and the University holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers.
