The School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln has scored highly in the recent independent performance measures of UK university computing departments; in the top 20% for student satisfaction (NSS 2014), the top 50 for research excellence in its publications (RAE 2014) and approximately 10% above the sector average for graduate employability (DLHE 2014). In the most recently published subject league tables (Sunday Times 2015; Complete University Guide 2016) the School is the highest ranked ‘new’ (post 1992) computer science department in the country.

We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Machine Learning. You will deliver modules in core computer science and contribute specifically to those in machine learning, both in theory and in practice, including topics such as artificial intelligence, data science and multi-media analysis. You will contribute to the University’s ambition to achieve international recognition as a research-intensive institution, conduct high quality research, seek external research income, encourage or facilitate commercial enterprise, supervise postgraduate research students and contribute to wider activities of the School.

Candidates should possess a PhD or equivalent experience, ideally in computer or information science and preferably with a track record in the delivery of study modules at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level. You should be able to demonstrate a commitment to maintaining the University’s high standards in teaching and learning. Your research interests will form an integral part of a new research group in Machine Learning at the School of Computer Science, working together with the newly appointed Founding Professor of Machine Learning. It is envisaged that the new group will focus on research into theoretical aspects, methodologies and practical applications of machine learning, as well as providing fundamental expertise in core machine learning to the School’s other research areas. We are seeking a good team worker who will be able to both align with and complement our existing research activity.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic research, and is located on the picturesque waterfront campus in the vibrant city of Lincoln.
