New opening: DIMAP Assistant Professor in Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science and the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP) at the University of Warwick invite applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level beginning September/October 2011.

Outstanding candidates in Theoretical Computer Science, Algorithms and Complexity, and Discrete Mathematics and its Applications will be considered. In addition, the department will also consider exceptional candidates in other related areas; candidates with a multi-disciplinary focus are encouraged to apply. Applicants should submit their applications online as described in detail at

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick is one of the leading Computer Science Departments in the United Kingdom for both research and teaching. The Department's research has a strong theoretical foundation upon which is built a variety of activities. Research activities in the Department include algorithms and complexity, formal methods and the semantics of programming languages, computational biology, software technologies and human aspects of computing, intelligent and adaptive systems, highperformance computing, and image and signal processing.

The position is affiliated with the Foundations of Computer Science Research Group (FoCS) in the Department of Computer Science. Research in FoCS is concerned with various topics of Theoretical Computer Science, Algorithms, Complexity Theory, Logic, and Automata and Verification.

The postholder is expected to play a central role in the activities in the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP). DIMAP was launched in March 2007 by the University of Warwick, partially funded by the EPSRC Science and Innovation Award EP/D063191/1 of £3.8 million.
DIMAP is a multidisciplinary research centre supporting an internationally competitive programme of research in discrete modelling, algorithmic analysis, and combinatorial (discrete) optimisation. It aims to support a thriving industrial affiliates programme and develop collaborative research rooted in discrete mathematics, involving researchers at other UK universities. The Centre also contributes to the development of undergraduate and taught postgraduate modules within degrees offered by the participating departments. With a number of internationally renowned researchers, an extensive programme of scientific seminars, international workshops and visiting researchers, and a multidisciplinary angle, DIMAP is one of the leading international research centres in discrete mathematics and its applications in computer science and operational research.

This is a permanent position (subject to the University’s normal arrangements for probation) based in the Department of Computer Science. All applicants should hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Computer Science, or a closely related discipline, be committed to excellence in teaching, and have demonstrated potential for excellence in research. The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses in computer science, conduct research in her/his field of expertise and actively participate in other DIMAP, Computer Science Department, FoCS, and university activities.
