RE: academic post in Design Informatics, including Computer Vision

The School of Informatics at The University of Edinburgh is inviting 
applications for a academic post in Design-Informatics, including  areas 
of Computer Vision.
The post is advertised for a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) but more 
senior appointments may be considered. Relevant areas of desired 
expertise include (one or more of):

* Computer vision and other sensing systems, including embedded realtime 
vision systems.

* Interactive media, animation and augmented reality.

* Data transduction, in which designs give the ability to make sense of 
complex datasets through visualization, sound or haptic feedback.

* Exploration of design spaces, including those associated with computer 
systems (from microprocessors through operating systems to networks) and 
with data sets and data visualization.

* Design of software, including interface design and visualization but 
also including design-related aspects of the semantics and structure of 
software systems.

* Design for ubiquitous technologies, including social signaling and 
other systems for harnessing mass information through design of 
ubiquitous devices or monitoring of social interactions and social spaces.

* Cognition and communication in the process of design, including 
mental models and user-centred design.

The School of Informatics is one of the internationally leading 
research departments, covering most areas of  artificial intelligence, 
cognitive science and computer science. The University of Edinburgh is 
consistently ranked by both the Times Higher Education Supplement and 
the Guardian Education Supplement as one of the world's top universities.
Edinburgh is one of the most attractive and desirable living locations 
in the world.
