Real-time video processing;
Adaptive control and machine learning;
The Internet of Things.
Other research areas with clear application to smart cities and urban science will also be considered.
You will play a leading role in the development and direction of the research, administration and teaching in the Department of Computer Science at Warwick. You will have particular responsibility for the University of Warwick's commitment to the Centre for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) in New York.
You will have a PhD or equivalent in Computer Science or a discipline related to smart urban environments, and you will have an excellent track record of research in this area. You must be able to demonstrate an ability to secure funded research grants. You will have interdisciplinary interests with industrial research experience. Although you will be based at the University of Warwick in the UK, you must be prepared to make regular visits to New York for teaching and research purposes.
