Vacancy: Reader/Senior Lecturer in Computing @ Robert Gordon University
- Reader/Senior Lecturer in Computing
Robert Gordon University -School of Computing
The School of Computing Science and Digital Media and IDEAS Research Institute invite applications for a Reader (Associate Professor) in Computing Science to support the future growth of the School.
The IDEAS Digital Technologies theme is the centre of research in the School of Computing Science and Digital Media. The group has a strong research profile and good research links through the Computer Science Alliance (SICSA), NRP's Computational Systems group and international collaborations.
The post is designed to expand and strengthen our research in Intelligent Information Systems, in areas related, or complementary, to 'big data', secure and/or cloud-based systems. Big data in oil and gas is a major theme of our future research strategy. Candidates in other areas of applied computing, in particular those related to energy or smart cities, are also encouraged to apply.
We are looking for innovative researchers of international standing with a strong track record of research funding and international quality publications, and the vision and leadership skills to play a central role in the development of research and partnerships. The successful candidates will have the ability to attract leading researchers and high quality students, and will contribute to relevant areas of teaching as appropriate. Relevant experience through industrial/commercial activities would be welcomed.
The School and IDEAS will be a significant part of a new £100 million building, completing RGU's move to its Garthdee riverside campus in summer 2013. The IDEAS research hub is home for the Graduate School and research projects, and is adjacent to the academic hub for the School.
Interviews will be in person during the week commencing 10th June.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the Head of School, Professor Ian Allison, (i.allison@...<mailto:i.allison@...> , +44 (0)1224 262701) or
the Research Institute Director, Professor Susan Craw (ideas@...<mailto:ideas@...>, +44 (0)1224 262711).

Award of the Readership title will be subject to relevant peer review and so 3 referees who can provide insight to your research track record will be required. If appropriate a less experienced candidate with strong evidence of potential will be considered at a lecturer grade.
