Imperial College is consistently in the top 10 world university ranking. The Department of Computing is a prominent department of Computer Science among UK Universities, and has consistently been awarded the highest research rating. In the 2014 REF assessment, The Department was ranked third (1st in the Research Intensity table published by The Times Higher), and was rated as "Excellent" in the previous national assessment of teaching quality.
We are seeking to hire two Research Assistants/Associates to join the Enhancing Critical Ecosystems Project, led by Prof Julie McCann as part of the Data Driven Engineering Programme in the Alan Turing Institute. This programme, funded by the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, is performing fundamental research and ground-breaking innovation in the applications of data science to improve infrastructure resilience and safety in society, while developing scientific advances that will have international impact for years to come (See https://www.turing.ac.uk/data-centric-engineering/).
The Enhancing Critical Ecosystems project aims to explore how combinations of sensing instrumentation, actuation, and a spectrum of edge-to-cloud data processing will improve and protect critical assets within ecosystems. The two ecosystems of focus are Next Generation Water Distribution Systems and Next Generation Smart Precision Farming, however the aim is to produce systems, algorithms and protocols that can serve more general ecosystems.
At Research Associate level you must have a PhD (or equivalent) in an area pertinent to the relevant research are.
