Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer in Interactive Graphics and Vision
REF: ATR1620

£51,799 to £60,022 per annum 

The School of Computing Sciences is on a trajectory for growth across our teaching, research and innovation portfolio. Within our forward plan we are looking to further develop and expand our portfolio in the Creative Industries and links with stakeholders and local agencies in the sector to help grow our research laboratory in Interactive Graphics and Audio.   

We now wish to appoint a full-time permanent Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer in Graphics and Vision. We are interested in candidates who can contribute to both our course offering and research portfolio in Creative Industries. We are particularly interested in candidates who share an enthusiasm and drive to assist in the exploration of new research opportunities linked to areas such as imaging from autonomous platforms, immersive graphics, digital animation, digital gaming platforms, haptics for a range of application areas such as engineering/health/medical/environmental as well as 3D reconstruction environments and Digital Humans.

We recently invested in the establishment of a new Motion Capture Laboratory and this provides opportunities for student projects and links with other research groups in the School and also groups in other Schools such as Environmental Sciences, History & Archaeology and Psychology.

You will be expected to have a PhD in a relevant area with a sustained track record of REF-returnable journal publications and grant income as well as an excellent track record of teaching in a Higher Education environment in terms of module management and delivery in subject areas linked to Graphics, Vision and Animation.

The successful applicant will have, or be willing to work towards, a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education or Fellowship of Advance HE (FHEA) within an agreed timeframe.

You will be expected to have a track record of attracting research funding from government funding agencies such as EPSRC or industry in related domains and will also have a portfolio of recent research publications in prestigious international journals or flagship conference proceedings in the domain.   It is also desirable that the successful applicant has an extensive network of national and international collaborators from academia, government and industry.

You will have experience to undertake project supervision and advisory roles at both undergraduate and MSc/PhD level and engage with a range of relevant administrative roles and outreach activities to support the mission of the School.
