Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering (ACSE) has 
currently opened three faculty positions at all levels (Lecturer, Senior 
Lecturer and Professor). We are especially keen on candidates wishing to 
contribute to one or more of the Engineering Grand Challenges identified 
by the EPSRC in the UK such as: Risk and Resilience, Controlling 
Cellular Behaviour, Big Data for Engineering, Suprastructures and 
Engineers at the Heart of Public Decision Making. As well as: Restore 
and Improve Urban Infrastructure, Engineer Better Medicines and 
Reverse-Engineer the Brain, which were put forward by the National 
Academy of Engineering in the US. Several of these challenges are 
related to robotics (e.g. see 

The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering is one of 
the largest departments devoted to the subject in Europe, with 28 
academic staff, 43 research staff, 29 professional and support staff and 
nearly 400 taught and research students. In the 2014 Research Excellence 
Framework (REF2014) exercise, out of 62 UK institutions specialising in 
multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary engineering, the Department 
was ranked 1st for quality of research publications and 3rd for overall 
research quality.

The closing date is 4th March 2015.
