Bournemouth University is creating the most stimulating, challenging and rewarding university experience in a world-class learning community by sharing our unique fusion of excellent education, research and professional practice and inspiring our students, graduates and staff to enrich the world.

The Faculty of Science and Technology seeks an exceptional candidate for a research intensive position at a Professor or Associate Professor level to further our growth and reputation in Data Science.

The newly formed Data Science Institute brings together expertise across the University, and beyond, but will be based primarily in the Faculty of Science and Technology. The Institute has grown out of our Smart Technology Research Centre and Department of Computing and Informatics' core expertise in Computational Intelligence, Machine Learning, Complex Adaptive Systems, Data Intensive Computing, Predictive Analytics and Big Data.

However, apart from the Core Data Science Technologies theme which you will be expected to strengthen, the institute also houses a range of complementary expertise, in engineering, robotics, social computing, environmental and conservation sciences, bioinformatics, computational neuroscience, applied mathematics, statistics, business, law and marketing organised into three additional, overlapping themes of Data Intensive Sciences, Data Driven Real World Applications and Data-driven Digital Entrepreneurship.

You will join a growing, exciting team including other recently recruited academics and be expected to engage actively in the research, postgraduate training, knowledge transfer and professional practise activities of the Data Science Institute.

Applications for this post are welcomed from those with a PhD degree in a relevant discipline, very strong record of research and evidence of successful research funding generation in the above mentioned areas. Preference will be given to candidates with experience of collaborative work with industry, public sector organisations or policy makers.

For further information on any of these posts, please contact Professor Bogdan Gabrys, on 01202 965298.

Detailed job descriptions and person specifications are available from our website together with an online application form. Alternatively, please telephone 01202 961130 (24 hour answerphone) quoting the appropriate reference.
