Chancellor’s Fellow in Security and Data Sciences
Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow in Security and Data Sciences.
Strathclyde Global Talent Programme
Be bold. Be innovative. Be a 'Strathclyder'
We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.
Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 60 outstanding academic colleagues – including Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellows - in areas of strategic importance. One area of importance is Security and Data Sciences.
This multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses major challenges in the key areas of:
- Machine Learning: Investigating the science of getting computers to learn how to behave in specific ways, something which underpins many intelligent devices.
- Data Science: inventing a scientific approach to extract knowledge and meaning from data. The focus of data science is analytics; uncovering patterns to describe data or predicting existing data sets.
- Computer Science (Cyber Security): Working to successfully protect our computer systems and stored data, enabling businesses to operate successfully.
Normally appointed at Lecturer level, the Fellowship will last for 5 years during which you will be supported to establish your career as a research leader and achieve rapid career progression. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period will be transferred to an open-ended ("tenured" equivalent) academic appointment. You will also benefit from research portfolio growth, reduced teaching load and administrative duties and a range of support.
You will hold a PhD, have postdoctoral research experience, an emerging high quality publications record and research interests which align with our strategic focus. You must be able to articulate your research vision.
