The Computer Science Department at Bristol is seeking to appoint 4 new Lecturers/Senior Lecturers (approximately equivalent to Assistant Professor in the US system). The appointments are part of a strategic plan to expand the Department over the next 5 years. We are looking for outstanding candidates who can contribute to research and teaching in the following areas.

One post is available in the area of HCI - candidates should be carrying out innovative research which will complement that of the Bristol Interaction and Graphics (BIG) Laboratory, led by Prof Sri Subramanian. This is an open ended appointment. The BIG lab is internationally recognised for its research in interaction devices and techniques.

For two further posts, we are looking to enhance our research and teaching in core computer science; both theoretical aspects (such as formal methods, complexity, information theory, theory of programming languages, automated theorem proving/protocol analysis), as well as engineering aspects (such as programming languages, operating systems, distributed computing and software engineering). One of these posts is open-ended, and the other is fixed term for 3 years.

For the fourth post we are looking to grow the work carried out by our Theory and Algorithms group. This is a fixed term appointment for 3 years. The group studies various aspects of the theory and practice of algorithms, covering algorithms and lower bounds in classical models of computation, as well as quantum computing.

Successful candidates for all posts will be expected to take an active role in providing high quality and innovative teaching in areas of Computer Science depending on previous experience. Interest in developing innovative ways of integrating teaching, research and technology development will be especially welcomed.

Further details for all posts can be found via the following links.
