The Information School seek applications from ambitious, highly motivated and talented individuals with a PhD or equivalent in Data Science or a relevant field, who will be keen to play an active role in maintaining and enhancing the School’s national and international reputation. If you have a developing (Lecturer) or established (Senior Lecturer) research profile, a proven teaching ability, a strong commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration, and want to make a key contribution to advancing the School’s leading position in the field then we want to hear from you!

The appointee will have a strong commitment to both research and teaching, and to interdisciplinary collaboration both within the University and with external organisations, and will make a key contribution to advancing the School’s competitive position. They will contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in areas such as: database design, machine learning, data communication and visualisation, and programming. We are particularly keen to attract applications from those who have a good understanding of FATES (fairness, accountability, transparency, ethics, safety and security) principles in data science research.

As a School we provide an excellent environment for academic career development including for early career researchers. We provide opportunities for mentorship, collaboration across disciplines and we are characterized by collegiality. The School values diversity and is committed to recognizing the contributions of all scholars. We have achieved an Athena Swan Bronze departmental award which recognizes our continuing work towards gender equality. The University also has a strong commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), with (for example) an Athena SWAN Silver institutional award for our ongoing work to progress gender equality, and a Race Equality Strategy and Action Plan to target issues of under-representation, progression and attainment. In the Information School our staff are involved in various ways in contributing to these and other core areas of faculty and university EDI strategy, and all new members of our team will be encouraged to do the same.
