		  Lectureships in Computing Science

We invite applications for two Lectureships in the Department of

fit into this environment.

Applications are invited both from persons with excellent track
records in the academic or industrial sectors, and from younger
persons who show outstanding promise in teaching and research.
Applicants should preferably possess expertise in one or more of the
following areas: databases, distributed systems, human-computer
interaction, information retrieval, multimedia, and software
engineering.  Outstanding applicants in other areas that match
departmental interests are also encouraged.  [Needless to say, type
theory is one such area!]

The Department is a thriving, vigorous and friendly place.  There are
around 33 academic staff, including five professors (plus a sixth
about to be appointed), supported by excellent secretarial, technical,
and programming staff, as well as state-of-the-art computer systems.
We teach over 1000 students (400 full-time equivalents).  Our course
structure is in a phase of rapid development: we plan new courses at
both undergraduate and advanced MSc level.  The new lecturers would be

pounds p.a.), at points determined by age, experience, and ability.
