An exciting opportunity to contribute to internationally recognised research and help shape the future of Cognitive Analytics.
Ulster is a university in the top 2% globally, where excellence in teaching is underpinned by world-leading research. Ranked as one of the world’s top 150 young universities and in the top 25% of UK universities for overall research, Ulster is ambitious, forward-thinking and outward-looking.
The Cognitive Analytics Research Laboratory is Northern Ireland’s first data analytics institute. It is a £4 million investment in 12 new academic posts that will bring together businesses, government and advanced academic research expertise to find innovative application areas for cognitive analytics techniques.
It represents a key component of Ulster’s strategic plan for the next five years, which encompasses an ambitious vision that will take us to our fiftieth anniversary in 2034.
The plan is focused on delivering a university that is sustainable and innovative with a strong international reputation for academic excellence and outstanding research.
Additionally the philanthropic investment of £5 million made by the Moore Family to endow the George Moore Chair in Data Analytics, cements Ulster University’s reputation as a global leader in revolutionising artificial intelligence and data analytics with real time, real life impact.
Dr George Moore is often cited as a founding father of the data analytics industry. As an Honorary Graduate of Ulster University, the establishment of this prestigious endowed Chair in his name honours his significant contribution to this increasingly important field.
This Chair supports Ulster’s ambitions, as a centre of excellence in the field of data analytics, by providing funds to engage a stellar, world-class academic as well as an associated research fellow to increase our research power and impact.
The successful applicants will have a determined and resilient approach to leadership, encouraging creativity and innovation in a relevant area of data analytics and be able to build strong stakeholder relationships so as to play a key strategic role in enabling the University to fulfil its potential.
