The University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a new Lecturer in the School of Computer Science, with specific research interests that are aligned with the activities of the Centre for Vision and Robotics Research (CVARR). You will contribute to the University's ambition to achieve international recognition as a research intensive institution and will be expected to conduct high quality research, seek external research income and supervise postgraduate research students as well contribute to wider activities of the School. Particular interest and experience is sought in the area of autonomous robotics.
Evidence of national/international research reputation, or the potential to achieve such a reputation, is essential as is experience of teaching, and the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team.
The School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln scored highly in RAE2008 with 85% of its outputs ranked at international quality or better with 15% ranked world-leading. It offers a range of taught programmes in computer science and information systems with approximately 500 full-time students. The School is located at the University's £100million Brayford Pool development - the first new city centre university campus to be built in the UK for 25 years.
CVARR has existing research in various application domains, including mobile robotics, video surveillance, food technology and medical imaging. The Centre has a wide range of national and international sponsors, from Research Councils to companies, and over 20 members, including 8 full-time faculty members (with further imminent expansion expected), postdoctoral research assistants, and a large number of graduate research students.
