          Information about the department can be found on the World
          Wide Web at URL: http://www.cs.ukc.ac.uk/ and application forms
	  can be obtained from L.T.Rigden@ukc.ac.uk.

          Applications are invited from candidates with an appropriate
          research and publications records in any area of Computer
          Science. The Laboratory is expanding its postgraduate activities
          and the person appointed will be expected to play a full part in
          research supervision.
          The Laboratory has consistently achieved a high research rating
          and enjoys an excellent research record, as outlined in the
          enclosed Computing Research at Kent. The close collaboration
          between Computer Science staff and those running the Computing
          Service creates an ideal environment for research projects which
          can be developed in the wider community.  The department has
          been awarded a Grade 4 in every Research Assessment Exercise
          to date and is seeking to strengthen and maintain its research
          The Laboratory has structured its research activity into a number
          of groups.  These are concerned with: Information Systems;
          Networks and Distributed Systems; Numerical and Scientific
          Computing; Parallel Computing; Software Tools and Electronic
          Publishing; and Theoretical Computer Science.  However, many
          activities span group boundaries, and the group structure evolves
          from time to time to reflect changes in the Laboratory's activities.
          Several of the current research activities are co-operative in
          nature, and reflect the Laboratory's wide network of industrial and
          government contacts. Since the Report was published, further
          grants received total about three quarters of a million pounds.


          The Computing Laboratory offers a wide range of computing
          programmes, brief details of which are given in the enclosed
          Computing booklet.
          In addition to three year degree courses in: Computer Science,
	  Applied Computing (part course), Computer Science with Management
	  Science, Computer Systems Engineering, Mathematics and Computer 
	  Science; a four year European Computer Science programme gives
          students the opportunity of intensive language training and a year
          in Germany (Aachen). A four year MEng degree has recently
          started as have variants of the three year programme `with a year in
          The Laboratory runs  highly successful MSc conversion
          programme in Computer Science for retraining graduates from
          other disciplines, which has 50 students this year. An advanced
          MSc in Distributed Systems has now run for 2 years, and is
          expanding steadily. 
          The current FTE load for Computer Science is approximately 480.
          The Laboratory's policy of offering a challenging and professional
          teaching programme, good facilities and a caring approach to its
          students was recognised by a rating of `excellent' by the HEFCE
          in 1994.
