|Workplace||Bath, South West England, UK|
We are looking for an academic with expertise in artificial intelligence to lead research, teach, and help with the running of the Department. We’re particularly looking for someone with research interests in a core area of AI such as machine learning, reinforcement learning, natural language processing or AI for robotics. You will be part of the Artificial Intelligence group, within the Department of Computer Science. Your research interest might also engage with the other groups in the Department: Human-Computer Interaction, Visual Computing and Mathematical Foundations.
About the Artificial Intelligence group
The AI group at the University of Bath has grown quickly in the last five years, and so has our reputation. Our team includes internationally renowned experts, such as Dr Joanna Bryson, who has recently been named as one of the top 10 AI influencers, and Dr Neill Campbell, a Royal Society Industry Fellow. Our team also includes lots of early career researchers, so there are many opportunities to progress.
We are a highly collaborative team, working not only with the other research groups in our Department, but across the university and beyond. For instance, the university has recently launched the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI. The centre brings together science, engineering, humanities and social sciences to work on and research AI . As well as supervising PhD candidates from this centre, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with the Centre’s growing set of partners. These include Google AI, DeepMind, the FCA, ONS, NHS, and universities including São Paulo, Zhejiang and Tsinghua.
What you will do as a lecturer
