Swansea University’s vision is to transform lives and futures by providing an outstanding academic environment with a balance of excellence between world-class teaching and research, driving impact that is enabled by effective regional and global collaborations.
With our world-class research centres and more than £500m investment into a new Bay Campus infrastructure, the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Swansea University stands out as one of the best centres of excellence in the country. Our outstanding research and teaching environment supports nationally and internationally important areas of research and teaching across a broad range of Physical Sciences and Engineering.
We seek to appoint a Senior Lecturer in Visualisation on an enhanced Research Pathway - https://staff.swansea.ac.uk/human-resources/academic-career-pathways/) to join the Department of Computer Science as part of the School of Mathematics and Computer Science led by Professor Elaine Crooks.
Our Visual Computing research group works in a broad range of subjects in the areas of visual computing since its establishment in 1992. The group has grown to a team of 11 academics and over 30 researchers and research students. The Visual Computing group has contributed a large collection of novel techniques and significant breakthroughs in the fields of Data Visualization, Computer Vision, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Visual Analytics, Data Science, Computer Graphics, Interaction and GPU programming. The group follows an ambitious and curiosity driven programme to develop new algorithms and methods, as well as advanced software techniques and tools. It has on-going collaborative research projects with scientists from around the world and is actively involved in knowledge transfer and industrial applications. The group accesses dedicated research labs (Visualisation Lab, Vision and Machine Learning Lab) with state-of-the-art workstations.
The successful candidate will be motivated in order to enhance this group and our research and learning and teaching within Computer Science.
