The role

The post of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Computer Science in the Computer Science Department will contribute to extending the research profile of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science at Exeter, particularly in areas related or complementary to the field for which the department has a strong research preference. We are particularly interested in areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Optimisation, Nature-Inspired Computing, and Machine Learning. However, we will consider candidates with expertise in any areas of Computer Science. Our department is a member of the Turing Institute and we expect the successful applicant to be able to take a fellowship position associated with the Turing.

The post will include research, teaching and related administration in Computer Science; collaborate with College and the University of Exeter as a whole in order to develop and support Computer Science research programmes and the College’s research programme. As mentioned above, the successful candidate is expected to become a Turing Fellow (after an application process).
