The School of Engineering and Informatics is investing for the future; a key element of that investment is in innovative people. We are in the process of advertising 15 posts in areas of strategic importance to the School. One such area is neural computation, machine learning, and their applications. We wish make two appointments in this area: one at Lecturer level and the other at Senior Lecturer/Reader level.
Position 1 is in neural computation. Applicants for this position should have a strong research record in some aspect of neural computation, including: computational neuroscience; neuroinformatics; neuro-centric biorobotics; and applications of neural computation in biology, cognitive science, or image processing.
Position 2 is in machine learning. Applicants for this position should have a strong research record in machine learning, with an interest in applying their research to problems in fields such as natural language processing, data mining and social media analysis.
The successful applicants will join the Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems Research Group (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/easy/) or the Cognitive and Language Processing Systems Research Group (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/calps/), but will be expected to contribute to other related research activities in the School. These include multidisciplinary research centres including the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/ccnr/), the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/sackler), and the Centre for Research in Cognitive Science (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/cogs/).
