The School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh has achieved significant growth in its taught student cohorts in recent years and this growth is continuing. As a consequence, the School is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced candidate to the post of University Teacher in Design Informatics. This post is part of a continuing expansion of the Institute for Design Informatics, and associated expertise at the intersection of design, computer science, human-computer interaction, data science and visualization, and artificial intelligence, at the University. 

The Opportunity

This post is associated with the Institute for Design Informatics (IDI) (designinformatics.org), a joint research initiative between the Schools of Informatics and Design. Now into its tenth year, IDI draws upon Edinburgh’s unique combination of strengths in Informatics and Design, to inspire, equip and nurture a new generation of researchers, practitioners and entrepreneurs at the intersection of data, design and technology. IDI researchers engage in a wide-range of projects, with strengths around digital health and care, creative industries, fintech, data visualisation and analysis, digital humanities, co-creative and speculative methods, human-computer interaction, human-centered security and privacy, and the societal and ethical dimensions of data and AI. The successful candidate will join IDI’s dynamic team of 100+ academics, researchers, PhD students, software research engineers and professional services staff and their dedicated fully equipped lab spaces for data visualization, digital fabrication, and public and student engagement.
