Post-doctoral vacancies at the University of Nottingham

Research Associate/Fellow in Computer Science (3 years)
Transitional Fellow in Computer Science - Senior Postdoc (5 years)
University of Nottingham - Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute

Horizon is a Digital Economy Research Institute that focuses on the role of 'always-on always with you' ubiquitous computing in the Digital Economy.

Horizon has a vacancy for a Research Associate/Fellow with expertise in data modelling and analysis, who will work closely with the Intelligent Modelling and Analysis group (http://ima.ac.uk) within Computer Science and provide a critical link between the two activities. The position will require knowledge of, and hands-on experience in, intelligent analysis of real-world data and knowledge in the presence of uncertainty and noise. Rare event detection and real-time analysis may be of particular interest. Methodologies may include Fuzzy Reasoning or bio-inspired computing, but the research will also require knowledge of statistical research methods.

Additionally, Horizon is looking for two senior post-doctoral Transitional Fellows. As a Horizon Transitional Fellow in Computing you will be initially focussed on the Horizon research agenda, and over five years transition to the normal duties of a Lecturer within the School of Computer Science. Candidates should have a PhD and a track record of internationally leading research. Key computing research challenges within Horizon include: mobile and ubiquitous computing; networking and distributed systems; data modelling and analysis. Candidates should have skills and experience in one or more of these fields and be keen to bring their expertise into the interdisciplinary team addressing the overall socio-technical challenges of the future Digital Economy.
