Informatics at Edinburgh:
Edinburgh is the only university in the UK to have achieved the top 5*A 
rating in Computer Science in the most recent government Research 
Assessment Exercise (2001). With 87.1 research-active staff submitted 
for assessment, it is also the UK's largest research group in this area. 
Edinburgh's Computer Science Department (Informatics) has topped the 
recent Guardian University Tables for Computer Science 
<http://browse.guardian.co.uk/education?SearchBySubject=true&FirstRow=&SortOrderDirection=&SortOrderColumn=&Subject=Computer+sciences+and+IT&Institution=>. 


Location:
Edinburgh is one of the most attractive cities in the UK and is 
frequently the winner of various "quality of life" surveys of UK cities. 
It combines the architectural grandeur and cultural advantages of a 
capital city with unrivalled access to unspoilt countryside. The School 
will relocate in 2007 to the Informatics Forum, a new custom-designed, 
11,500m2 building that will house some 500 research staff and students. 
This, together with the adjacent Appleton Tower, which will house our 
teaching and commercialisation activities, will accommodate the entire 
School of Informatics on the Crichton Street site within the 
University's central George Square campus in Edinburgh's "Southside".

Application Deadline: May 24, 2007
