Lectureships at Glasgow

Please circulate the following to anyone who might find it of

Functional programming, formal methods, and type theory are among the
`departmental interests' mentioned in the advertisement.  The money for
the one-year temporary lectureship is coming from an industrial
research grant that I secured; so strong candidates in these areas have
a fair chance for at least one of the posts.  Any exceptionally strong
candidate would be considered for the permanent lectureship, regardless
of research area.

Please write to me if you have any questions.  Cheers,  -- P

                   Lectureships in Computing Science

The University invites applications for one permanent and two temporary
lectureships in the Department of Computing Science. This Department is
top-rated for both teaching and research. 

Applicants should possess the enthusiasm and ability to fit into a
dynamic academic environment, and should show considerable promise in
both teaching and research. Applicants for the permanent lectureship
should also have substantial experience in both teaching and research.

In 1995-96 the Department will launch a new MSc course in Advanced
Information Systems, covering databases, information retrieval, and
multimedia. For two of the appointments, preference will be given to
applicants who can demonstrate expertise in at least one of these areas. 
Strong applications in other areas that match departmental interests are
also welcomed.

The permanent lecturer will be appointed on the Lecturer A or B scale
(#14,756-25,735 p.a.), at a point determined by age, experience, and
ability. The temporary lecturers will be appointed on the Lecturer A
scale (#14,756-19,326 p.a.). One temporary appointment will be tenable
for three years in the first instance, the other for one year in the
first instance. If the applicants are strong enough, consideration will
be given to increasing the number and length of these appointments.

Informal enquiries may be made to the Head of Department, Dr David Watt,
