To be considered for the role, you will be educated to a minimum of PhD level in Computer Science (or closely related Engineering discipline), or have significant relevant experience in addition to a relevant degree. You will have sufficient breadth or depth of knowledge in full stack web development, and a growing ability to conduct individual research work, to disseminate results and to prepare research proposals. You will have an ability to plan and organise your own workload effectively and an ability to work within a team environment. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to listen, engage and persuade, and to present complex information in an accessible way to a range of audiences.
Whilst not essential for the role, applications are welcomed from candidates with: relevant work experience in computer vision, cloud computing, and knowledge exchange related activities, membership of relevant Chartered/professional bodies (including the Higher Education Academy), experience of relevant student supervision and teaching activities, and/or experience of knowledge exchange related activities.
