The Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS) seeks to appoint a Research Associate in Human Centred AI. This post will be part of the SISRG (Strathclyde iSchool Research Group) research group and under the supervision of Professor Martin Halvey (Head of Department). SISRG is an interdisciplinary information science research group, investigating human information behaviour, interactive information retrieval (IR), conversational search and multimodal interaction. SISRG members publish at leading international venues e.g. SIGIR, ASIS&T, CHI, CHIIR and have a track record of attracting funding from a variety of sources e.g. UKRI, EU, industry etc. Much of our work is societal in nature, investigating human information need and use, and informing the design and delivery of public information systems and services.

We seek to recruit a highly motivated scholar who will contribute to the research activities in human centred AI, information interaction and retrieval. Applicants from a range of research backgrounds will be considered, including but not limited to NLP, IR, HCI and LIS. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate significant promise in their research discipline with a record of achievement in their career to date as demonstrated through publications in leading international venues. This post is not associated with any one particular research project and candidates will have the opportunity to develop their own research agenda. Aligned with this research agenda candidates are expected to develop and meet ambitious academic goals over the course of their appointment. Any successful applicant will develop an understanding of how to bring in the grant income required to fund those goals over the course of their appointment.

From time to time some teaching duties may be required. There is a possibility that the post may be extended beyond January 2027. Strathclyde has flexible working arrangements. We also encourage applicants from a variety of background to apply, in particular those from underrepresented groups in computer science. 

Formal interviews for this post will be held late March / April 2024. 

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Professor Martin Halvey (martin.halvey@strath.ac.uk).
