About the School of Informatics


The University of Leicester is ranked one of the top 200 universities in the world and top 25 in the UK according to the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2020. Informatics is a School focussed on excellence in everything we do. Working hard together, our ambitious staff and students work in cooperation to deliver research, teaching and learning of the highest quality. The School provides a rich and culturally diverse environment where both students and staff can thrive in a demanding yet cooperative and friendly atmosphere.

The excellence of the School’s research has been confirmed in the last two national research assessment exercises (in 2008 and 2014). In each exercise, 95% of our research was judged to be of international quality, 65% was judged to be internationally leading, and over 20% of our research outputs world-leading. In teaching, we aim to deliver an outstanding student experience, with a wide range of modern undergraduate and postgraduate programmes along with doctoral research, all responsive to a competitive and rapidly changing discipline. Our teaching is founded on strong pedagogical principles, together with a unique approach to staff/student engagement and active learning.

About the Role


We will consider all candidates whose research focuses on one or more of the following areas:

- Cyber-physical systems

- Human Computer Interaction

- Machine Learning and AI

- Optimisation algorithms and Operations Research

- Software Engineering for Autonomous Systems

- Data Science

In this role you will conduct high-level research teaching whilst generating funding through grants, consultancy and knowledge transfer activities. You will give lectures, seminars and tutorials, especially in areas across the School’s undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum. Your research will result in significant contributions to papers in leading international conferences and journals, whilst helping to build your relationships with external partners to support knowledge transfer and impact outside academia.

The main emphasis for selection will be on research excellence, but the role also includes the development and delivery of excellent and innovative teaching in the respective areas as well as contributions to the administration and management of the School. You will work in a very supportive environment with research and teaching mentoring. At the heart of the UK, the University of Leicester is a research-intensive university. Different areas of activity are balanced by a departmental workload model to ensure fair and transparent balance between staff and different areas of activity.

There are two full time, open ended positions available.

About You


In addition to being engaged in innovative learning and teaching that engages and inspires students, you will already have an established reputation for research, with a strong record of publications (appropriate to your level of experience) in peer reviewed journals and conferences of substantial international standing. You will have excellent networking skills which you use to seek out opportunities for collaboration and citizenship, both internally and externally. You will also be able to demonstrate the ability to generate external funding through research grants, contracts or other sources. Finally, you will have a track record of engaging with a range of communities related to your research and teaching interests, including external organisations and companies.
