Are you an ambitious and dynamic academic, looking to make a significant contribution to the continued success of the School of Computer Science?
We are seeking to appoint two Professors with established and sustained profiles of research outputs, and track records in attracting research funding. You will have the opportunity to significantly impact the University’s national and international reputation in your academic field, as well as supporting the University’s high standards of teaching and learning.
You will be able to take a leadership role in one of the School’s research groups, and we would welcome applications from new areas that complement our existing research specialisms. As well as contributing to the School's teaching activities and developing your research portfolio, you will also be involved in: acquiring external funding; supervising postdoctoral researchers and PhD students; publishing in the highest quality journals and conferences; contributing to real-world applications with positive impacts; and conducting, directing, and leading research in line with the targets set by the School.
The School of Computer Science is a key player in the continued success story of the University of Lincoln. It pursues a blend of fundamental, applied, and interdisciplinary research, with current focus areas in Medical Imaging and Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and Human-Computer Interaction. Research in the School was ranked 10th in the national Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 for the impact submitted, and 83 per cent of our publications were rated as being of “international quality” or “world leading”.
The University is committed to building a culturally diverse institution, where all staff and students can flourish and feel valued for their contribution and individuality. We are encouraging talented people, whatever their background, to work and study here. All appointments are made on merit. We particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified female academics, as they are currently under-represented in positions within the School.
If you would like to know more about this opportunity, please contact Prof Simon Parsons, Head of the School of Computer Science, at email@example.com.
