Three academic posts in Informatics, including Computer Vision, University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh invites applications for three lectureships (assistant professor) in Informatics. Applications are welcomed across all areas of informatics research

and we especially encourage those in the following areas:

* Computer vision, with a focus on real-time vision, vision for robotics and real world applications.

* Cyber-security, reinforcing our security-related research and connecting to our strengths in databases, programming languages and verification.

* Data management, reinforcing our world leading database group.

* Computational social science and social artificial intelligence, in which new styles of computation, statistics, quantitative social science and economics are used to develop new forms of large scale, population-based computation (social computing, collective intelligence, crowdsourcing, etc) and to understand how humans interact with such systems.

* Computational cognitive science, understanding the interplay between cognition and computation via areas such as language, vision and multi-modal processing; complex systems in cognitive science; language and skill learning; cognitive factors in design and decision-making; and systems for alleviating cognitive impairments.

* Computational biomedicine, fundamental research in the space between clinical and biological sciences to address problems of data quantity and complexity that span multiple scales of biological organization.

* Clinical informatics, building new foundations for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients through data-intensive methods and algorithms.

* Synthetic biology, developing efficient methods for designing biological systems using computational principles and techniques.

* Human computer interaction, especially as it relates to the other areas above.

The posts are open-ended and available from February 2013

Salary Scale: £37,012 - £44,166

The School of Informatics is one of the internationally leading research departments, covering most areas of artificial intelligence, cognitive science and computer science. The University of Edinburgh is consistently ranked by both the Times Higher Education Supplement and the Guardian Education Supplement as one of the world's top universities. Edinburgh is one of the most attractive and desirable living locations in the world.

Details of the post and the application procedure can be found at here.
