Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Reader in GIST

We are looking for outstanding researchers 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 (http://www.social-cdt.org). 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.

Three positions are available.

Open Call in FATA and GLASS

To carry out research and scholarship in Computing Science, deliver an excellent student experience through teaching and assessment, and contribute to management and administration. At Grade 8 and 9, demonstrate leadership and contribute to academic and strategic management and to advance knowledge exchange, public understanding and outreach.

The University of Glasgow, established in 1451, is a member of the UK's Russell Group of leading universities. The University is committed to enhancing its position as one of the world's great broad-based research-intensive universities.

Applications for the post are welcome in research areas that complement the existing strengths of the Formal Analysis, Theory and Algorithms section (FATA) and the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS).

Within FATA, research focuses on three main topics: algorithms and complexity (including graph and matching algorithms, constraint programming and algorithm engineering); formal methods (including process algebras, modelling and analysis of complex and reactive systems, model checking and bigraphs); and programming language foundations (including session types for concurrent and distributed systems).

Within GLASS, research focuses on three main topics: networked systems (including network and service management, Software-Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization, routing and transport protocols, networked multimedia, network security and resilience); parallel and distributed systems (including parallel language design and implementation, heterogeneous architectures, parallel hardware, Edge computing, functional programming); and systems engineering (including socio-technical systems, digital forensics, software reliability, secure and privacy-preserving software engineering).

There is existing FATA-GLASS collaboration in the areas of programming languages and in parallel algorithms for hard problems. We also welcome applicants who can strengthen FATA / GLASS contributions to other cross-cutting themes within the School, including trustworthy autonomous systems, cyber security and healthcare.

The post-holder will develop, lead and sustain research of international standard in Computing Science; contribute to teaching, assessment, project supervision and curriculum design at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; and participate in School management and organisation.

For appointment at Reader you will have an outstanding track record of national and international distinction and leadership in research, including publications, income, and awards, bringing external recognition and distinction to yourself and the University.

 

Two positions are available.
