[DMANET] 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 ( 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.
