The School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh invites applications for a Lectureship in Machine Learning from outstanding candidates in any area of machine learning (including models, algorithms and applications).
We particularly welcome applications from candidates who are developing principled machine learning/statistical/data mining approaches to working with real-world, complex data. Example areas include (but are not limited to): machine learning methods in computer vision/multimodal sensing; models for multi-stream data; inference and prediction in networks of interacting elements (e.g. in systems biology); reinforcement learning approaches to acting under uncertainty.
Recent investment by the Scottish Funding Council has enabled leading researchers across Scotland, including Informatics at Edinburgh, and groups and individuals at the Computer Science Departments of nine other institutions, to establish the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) http://www.sicsa.ac.uk. Where relevant, candidates should relate their applications to the SICSA research themes for securing, interfacing, modelling and engineering the systems of tomorrow.
[A Lectureship is roughly equivalent to a US Assistant Professor]
