The Department of Computer Science at Royal Holloway is looking to appoint an experienced academic to support its research and teaching.

We carry out outstanding research and deliver excellent teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level: we ranked 11th in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) for the quality of our research output, and in teaching we are in the top 10 in the UK for graduate prospects (Complete University Guide 2021).

Over the past seven years, we have undertaken an ambitious plan of expansion: sixteen new academic members of staff were appointed, new undergraduate and integrated-masters programmes were created, and six new postgraduate-taught programmes were launched. We are involved in multiple inter/multidisciplinary activities, from electrical engineering to psychology and social sciences. Recently Royal Holloway launched a catalyst for “Transformative Digital Technologies, Security and Society”, which we aim to contribute to. Our research strength also generates significant interest and collaborative opportunity from universities and third stream partners.

We are now recruiting an academic member of staff who can complement or strengthen our existing research, which falls broadly within Intelligent Systems, Machine Learning, Algorithms and Complexity, and Programming Languages and Systems; we also have strong connections with the Information Security Group. 

We particularly welcome applications from researchers in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Systems and the Internet of Things, Distributed Systems and Security, and Networking, but we welcome exceptional candidates from all disciplines in Computer Science and those who can also contribute to the new catalyst(s).

The successful candidate will help us seek and seize opportunities for research funding and industrial engagement. They will hold a PhD or equivalent, and will have a proven research record in any of those areas, with a solid background in the underlying theory. Experience in attracting funding, engaging with industry, or contributing to outreach activities would also be valuable.

The appointee will be expected to contribute across the full range of departmental activities, including undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and the supervision of mainstream projects over a wide range of topics. In particular, duties and responsibilities of this post include: conducting individual or collaborative research projects; producing high-quality outputs for publication in high-profile journals or conference proceedings; applying for research funding; delivering high-quality teaching to all levels of students; supervising research postgraduate students. 

This is a full-time and permanent (tenured) post, available from August 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. The post is based in Egham, Surrey, within commuting distance from London, Europe’s most dynamic technology hub.
