The successful candidate will be expected to take a major role in strengthening and growing research and teaching in computer science at Bristol.
The successful candidate will have an established track record or trajectory of research at a level of international excellence and will have already published a significant number of high-quality papers. Successful candidates are expected to contribute to the advancement of their field and the department by developing an original and leading research program, and to contribute to the department’s educational provision. You will have proven ability to attract research funding from funding agencies and/or industry.
This post is being offered on a full-time, open-ended contract.
Applicants must include in their application the following (joined together into one document):
A two-page Research Statement detailing your research plans and a brief description of how this complements the research profile of the Department;
A one-page Teaching Statement detailing the contributions that you can make to teaching in the Department.
