University of Edinburgh Faculty Hire in Computer Vision (Reader/Lecturer)

Applications are invited for a Lecturer to join the Institute of Perception,
Action and Behaviour, part of the School of Informatics, at The 
University of
Edinburgh. For an exceptional candidate, appointment to the position of 
Lecturer or Reader will be considered. Multiple positions may be available.

The Institute carries out research in Machine Vision, Graphics, and 
It also has substantial cross links to the Institute of Adaptive and Neural
Computation. Candidates with an interest in the computational 
neuroscience of
vision, machine learning, or the application of computer vision to robotics
and real time sensing are particularly encouraged to apply; but applications
in any area of Image and Vision computing will be considered.

The School of Informatics plays a leading role in the EPRSC Centres for 
Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and in Data Science, with 
for the appointee to supervise PhD students from the Centres (and from other
sources). In partnership with Heriot Watt University, we have recently 
the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, with substantial infrastructure 
funding for
robotic platforms and supporting facilities. The University of Edinburgh 
is also one
of the five joint venture partner universities in the UK's The Alan 
Turing Institute
for Data Science; this gives rise to opportunities to interact with PhD 
research fellows and senior researchers within The Alan Turing 
Institute. In addition,
there are many opportunities to interact with other parts of the 
University and beyond
in order to further the candidate's research agenda. There will be a 
requirement to
be involved in enhancing eLearning and online teaching initiatives.

This is a full-time, open-ended, appointment.

The successful candidate will have a PhD; experience as an established
researcher in Image and Vision Computing; enthusiasm to undertake original
research including leading a research group; ability to engage with
undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and academic supervision; and the
ability to be involved in enhancing eLearning and on-line teaching 

Salary: Lecturer UE08 £39,324 - £46,924 per annum
         / Senior Lecturer or Reader UE09 £49,722 - £55,998 per annum
