Applications are invited for Lecturer in Database Systems to join the Database group in the School of Informatics at The University of Edinburgh.
The Database Group carries out research on many theoretical and practical aspects of data management. The School of Informatics plays a leading role in the EPRSC Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Science, with opportunities for the appointee to supervise PhD students from the Centre (and from other sources). The University of Edinburgh is also one of the five joint venture partner universities in the UK's Alan Turing Institute for Data Science; this gives rise to opportunities to interact with PhD students, research fellows and senior researchers within the Turing Institute. In addition, there are many opportunities to interact with other parts of the University and beyond in order to further the candidate's research agenda.
The successful candidate will have a PhD (or be near to completion), experience as an established researcher in data management, especially database systems, enthusiasm to undertake original research including leading a research group, and the ability to engage with undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and academic supervision.
In the case of an exceptional applicant, an appointment may be available as a Senior Lecturer or Reader (Grade UE09). Job descriptions for each level are outlined below. The level of appointment would be determined by the selection panel following interview in the Spring or early Summer of 2018 in Edinburgh.
Appointment will be full-time and open-ended.
Feedback will only be provided to interviewed candidates.
