		  Lectureships in Computing Science

We invite applications for two Lectureships in the Department of
Computing Science. The Department is dedicated to excellence in both
teaching and research, and currently has the highest possible research
rating of 5.  Applicants must possess the ability and enthusiasm to 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.

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

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