Computer Science and Communications Engineering.  As part of an
investment programme that has already seen us fill two new posts in
2011, we now wish to appoint a new Readership (equivalent to Associate
Professor in the US system).

For this Readership post we wish to encourage applications from
well-established senior researchers in one of the following areas
(although strong applications in other areas will also be considered):

Computing, Service Engineering or Adaptive Systems.

2. Security: cybersecurity, digital forensics, identity management,
privacy management; we particularly encourage those interested in novel
engineering methodologies and tools related to these security domains.

3. Social computing: social networks, data mining, semantic web,
recommender systems, social media intelligence.

4. Networking: next-generation networks and Internet architectures,
security and resilience in communication networks.

information theory.

For context, the School's research spans the following general areas:
Communications and Networking, Computer Systems, Intelligent Systems,
Software Engineering and Human-Computer Interaction.  We value research

multidisciplinary research with high impact.  Our work is applied in a
wide range of domains including energy, transport, cyber crime and
social computing.
