Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Reader in GIST

We are looking for an outstanding researcher who can work with the Glasgow Interactive Systems Team (GIST) to make new interactive technologies capable of understanding and utilising the behaviour of their users.

The Glasgow Interactive Systems Team (GIST) is a world-leading research group investigating interactive technologies (from mobile phones to social robots, from ultrasonic haptics to usable security) that can understand their users, optimise and enrich interactions between users and technology, model and predict usage patterns, and infer socially and psychologically relevant phenomena such as social signals, emotions and mental health issues. The ideal candidate combines solid methodological skills with an interest to address real-world problems that involve the interaction between people and technology.

GIST provides an ideal ground for academic growth. It is the leader of a recently awarded Centre for Doctoral Training that will provide 50 PhD scholarships in the next five years ( In addition, its 7 members have accumulated more than 25,000 Scholar citations and have been or are leading large-scale national and European projects (including the ERC advanced
grant “Viajero”, the Network Plus grant “Human Data Interaction”, the FET-Open project “Levitate”, the H2020 project MuMMER, the European Network of Excellence “SSPNet”, the Program Grant “Populations”, etc.) for a total of over £20M in the last 10 years.
