Lectureship in Complex Systems Simulation
Position Number: 4845-10-G
Closing Date: 15/11/2010
Description: Lectureship in Complex Systems Simulation £34,607 - £43,840 per annum
Applications from outstanding researchers are invited for a Lectureship in Complex Systems Simulation to join the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) in the Faculty of Physical and Applied Sciences.
ECS is the pre-eminent school of its kind in the UK with a world-class reputation for computer science and electronics, and a growing reputation for fundamental and applied complexity science.
This appointment is an opportunity for a researcher with an outstanding track record to join and help to develop a complexity science activity within ECS’s Science and Engineering of Natural Systems (SENSe) research group.
Candidates should be engaged in a combination of fundamental and applied complexity science research, employing and developing novel computational methodologies. The use of complex systems simulation to help solve real-world problems in science or engineering will be an advantage. Experience of securing research funding and of teaching and supervising at undergraduate/post-graduate level is desirable. The successful applicant will be closely involved in Southampton’s Doctoral Training Centre in Complex Systems Simulation and will be expected to play a leading role in developing new collaborative research activities across the University.
Information about ECS and the SENSe research group can be found at http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/.
The Institute for Complex Systems Simulation and associated Doctoral Training Centre is detailed here: http://www.icss.soton.ac.uk/.
Informal enquiries can be made in the first instance to Dr Seth Bullock firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for this appointment is 12 noon on 15 November 2010. Interviews will take place mid December 2010. Please quote reference number 4845-10-G in all correspondence.
Key Accountabilities/Primary Responsibilities:
Develop the research activities of the School by sustaining a personal research plan and developing innovative research proposals and funding bids, managing and undertaking research activities in accordance with a specific programme in the appropriate research team, and providing guidance to staff and students on own specialist area. In particular the post holder will be expected to engage with research within Southampton’s Institute for Complex Systems Simulation (ICSS).
Support the teaching objectives of the School by developing teaching methods, designing course units and delivering a range of teaching and assessment activities including lectures, setting/marking coursework, practicals, supervisions and fieldwork according to own area of subject specialism. In particular the post holder will be expected to contribute to the taught component of the Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) in Complex Systems Simulation.
Contribute to the efficient management and administration of the School, by performing personal administrative duties as allocated by the Head and by taking on appropriate School co-ordinating roles. Such duties may include, for example, running the process of admissions, examinations, teaching quality assessment or the RAE.
In the first instance, these duties will involve management of the taught component of the DTC PhD programme.
