[DMANET] Professor/Associate Professor positions in AI/multi-agent systems at University of Southampton

Two senior positions as professor or associate professor are available at the Agents Interaction Complexity (AIC) research group, Electronics and Computer Science (ECS), the University of Southampton.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, ECS was first in the UK for the volume and quality of research in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The volume and quality of ECS Computer Science research is in the top 10 in the UK, with 100% of Computer Science research impact rated as world-leading or internationally excellent.

The appointments will be in the AIC group. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, multi-agent systems, interaction, and the internet-of-things. However, we will consider outstanding candidates across the full range of the group's activities. AIC currently has 60 staff and students who undertake world-leading, cross-disciplinary research in socio-technical systems and their applications.

The department is looking for research leaders who will build up a team that complements existing activity, lead on quality scientific outputs, deliver significant societal impact and contribute to the educational agenda. The candidate will be expected to demonstrate experience of academic leadership and evidence of attracting significant research funding, as well as personal distinction in scholarship and research.

For informal enquiries, please contact Professor Nick Jennings (nrj@ecs.soton.ac.uk).
