Opening: Assistant Professor
The University of Warwick is one of the founding partners in New York's recently announced Centre for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP).
CUSP is an applied sciences institute focused on creating new transdisciplinary solutions for ‘smart urban environments’.
At full strength, CUSP will house 30 faculty, 400 Master’s students, 100 PhD students and 30 post-docs, researching areas including intelligent transportation, managing urban services and infrastructure, public safety and security, health informatics, and efficient, responsive and resilient buildings.
The University of Warwick is seeking to make several appointments in support of this initiative.
We welcome interest from Computer Science researchers in areas including:
Sensors and Mobile Infrastructures;
Security and Surveillance;
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 undertake research, teaching, administration and other activities supporting the work of the Department of Computer Science, both at the University of Warwick and also at 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 be able to demonstrate excellent research potential in this area. You will have interdisciplinary interests and 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. You will also be required to work with industry partners as part of this initiative.
