Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence
As part of its strategic development, the Department of Informatics is seeking applications from candidates for the position of Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence, starting in December 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.
The successful applicant for this post will undertake research and teaching in the area of Artificial Intelligence. They will be assigned to teach on the Department's MSc in Artificial Intelligence, may also be required to teach on other postgraduate or undergraduate degree programmes offered by the Department of Informatics, and will be expected to supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate projects.
Accordingly, the successful applicant will need knowledge and awareness of current research and practical challenges in Artificial Intelligence. The Department seeks to broaden and deepen its current strengths in these areas, so candidates engaged in research and teaching which complements that of the existing members of the Department will be considered favourably. Topics of interest in the area of Artificial Intelligence include, but are not limited to, deep learning, Bayesian reasoning and statistical methods, planning, symbolic AI, neurosymbolic reasoning, safe and trusted AI, explainable AI, AI accountability, decision making in the presence of uncertainty, algorithmic bias, autonomous systems, and machine learning, in particular for vision or natural language processing.
The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to join the Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI) group or Reasoning and Planning (RAP) group, will be expected to contribute to the Trusted Autonomous Systems Hub, will have the opportunity to strengthen the activity of the departmental Machine Learning theme (see https://www.kcl.ac.uk/nms/depts/informatics/research/machine-learning/machine-learning.aspx), and contribute to the Centre for Doctoral Training in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence. Research collaboration across research groups, with departmental hubs and with other Departments in the Faculty and across the College is strongly encouraged.
Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant area, an excellent publication record, and the ability to attract research funding.
