This is an exciting opportunity for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing and Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Large Scale Data Fusion at the University of Sheffield, a world top 100 University. Working in the Department of Computer Science, you will join our highly respected Organisations, Information and Knowledge (OAK) research group.
Our OAK group conducts research and innovation in the area of large-scale data, information and knowledge acquisition, integration and sharing. Key areas of interest in the group include mobile computing, internet of things, web computing, natural language processing, as well as data modelling over large scale.
We are seeking an outstanding candidate with a strong academic track record in pervasive and ubiquitous computing. You will have the ability to work with real-world data, and an interest in seeing research being carried to high technology readiness levels. Working with very large volumes of heterogeneous data (e.g. from mobility trackers, vehicular sensors, cameras, medical sensors), you will identify data needs and focus big data research over them, supporting translation of research outcomes in areas such as smart cities, mobility, health and wellbeing, and web technologies.
You will hold a PhD in Computer Science or a related area (e.g. electrical/control engineering), and be able to conduct research to the highest standards. You will secure research funding, publish in high impact journals, supervise research students and manage research projects. As a teacher, you will play a key role in maintaining our reputation for high-quality teaching by designing, delivering and assessing undergraduate and postgraduate-level courses in your area of expertise and other core topics in computer science.
The Department of Computer Science is embarking on an ambitious growth strategy following our strong performance in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, in which we were ranked 5th out of 89 computer science departments in the UK. The Department is part of the Faculty of Engineering, ranked 84th globally by the recent Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience. The Department of Computer Science holds a Silver Athena SWAN award, in recognition of our commitment to equality and diversity.
