Lectureships in Statistical Inference & Multi-Modal Interaction

The Department of Computing Science of the University of Glasgow invites applications for three Lectureships in Statistical Inference, Multi-Modal Interaction, and Formal Methods. The post in Statistical Inference will be of particular interest to candidates with strong track records and interests in Bayesian methodology and Statistical Machine Learning.

[A Lectureship is roughly equivalent to a US Assistant Professor]

Computing Science at Glasgow was rated as one of the top 10 departments for research in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. For further information about the Department’s research strengths see http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/research/ and for more information about SICSA see http://www.sicsa.ac.uk/. The Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) aims to create a world-leading Computer Science research community across the universities in Scotland. As part of this initiative, the Department of Computing Science is seeking to appoint three lecturers to undertake research and to develop and teach undergraduate or postgraduate courses within the following areas:

Inference, covering statistical inferential methodology, computational statistics and statistical machine learning. We would welcome applicants working in the area of Bayesian Inference, especially those whose research focus is on probabilistic modelling and inferential methodology applied to themes in Multimodal Interaction and Modelling & Abstraction.
