Do you have proven expertise in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and an established international reputation within the field, both in industry and academia? Are you looking for a challenging role in an environment that is open, vibrant and welcomes new ideas? Then ‘Be The Change’, follow your passion and join the University of East London as Professor of Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning.
These are exciting times at the University as, under a brand new transformational 10-year strategy, Vision 2028, we’re committed to providing students with the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world, including increasing the diversity of the talent pipeline, particularly for Industry 4.0 jobs. Our pioneering and forward-thinking vision is set to make a positive and significant impact to the communities we serve too, and inspire our staff and students to reach their full potential. This is your chance to be part of that journey.
Your challenge? To raise the profile of the department and school, specifically in impactful applied research in disciplines that include Deep Learning, Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. We’ll also rely on you to lead and develop the School’s work, both in relation to taught courses and in terms of research, consultancy, knowledge transfer and income generation. And, as a senior academic leader, you’ll be instrumental in shaping the School’s strategy for promoting research, learning & teaching and employability initiatives.
Playing a prominent role in obtaining funding for research and knowledge exchange activities in your area of expertise will be important too. We’ll also encourage you to contribute to other aspects of the School’s work, such as staff development activities, mentoring and supporting the development of early career researchers and joint supervision of PhD students.
To succeed, you’ll need a PhD in Computer Science or other relevant area and experience of teaching in higher education or training in a professional context and applying innovative and successful approaches to learning. You’ll also need a proven ability to lead on the fusion of practice and theory in specific disciplines, in-depth experience of research & knowledge exchange projects and a record of significant research & knowledge exchange grant capture and/or income generation or equivalent. As comfortable developing and managing major research grant applications as you are communicating academic findings to policy and wider public audiences, you also have experience of PhD supervision as a Director of Studies and other research mentorship activities.
So, if you have what we are looking for and are keen to take on this exciting challenge, get in touch.
At the University of East London, we aim to attract and retain the best possible staff and offer a working environment at the heart of a dynamic region with excellent transport links. You can look forward to a warm, sincere welcome, genuine camaraderie and mobility in an institution led with passion, visibility and purpose. Your impact, resilience and sense of collegiality will directly contribute to the University’s future and those of the students whose lives you will touch and change forever. We also offer a great range of benefits including pension, family friendly policies and an on-site nursery and gym at our Docklands Campus.
