***LECTURESHIP IN COMPUTER SCIENCE***
**Department of Computer Science**
The Department of Computer Science invites applications from
candidates with excellent research experience or potential, to
strengthen and complement existing research and teaching. The
Department is undergoing a major expansion and is scheduled to move
into a new £5.4 million building in October 2000. In line with this
expansion we are seeking to appoint in most areas of computer
science, but particularly in software and systems.
The Department organizes its research in three major areas: software,
systems and applications, and theory of computation. In the software
area there are research groups in software technologies, human
computer interaction, and agent-based systems. In the systems domain
we have research groups with interests in image and signal
processing, multimedia coding, and high-performance systems. The
theory group has research activities in the semantics of programming
languages, and algorithms and complexity. Candidates with research
interests in these or complementary areas are encouraged to apply.
The Department offers a stimulating research environment and has
consistently been awarded the top rating in the Research Assessment
Exercise, currently 5-star.
The Department achieved a top-rating of 'excellent' in the Teaching
Quality Assessment, and candidates will be expected to be
enthusiastic teachers at both the undergraduate and post-graduate
levels, and willing to supervise research students. However, it is
Warwick University policy to give junior faculty a reduced teaching
load in order to develop their research interests.
