The University values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
Any job application submitted with a curriculum vitae should be accompanied by a Cover Sheet for Employment (Form PD18) which can be downloaded from http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/personnel/forms/pd18/, or may be obtained in hard copy from the advertising Department or Faculty.
Applications are invited for two University Lectureships, one in the Systems Research Group and the other in the Computer Architecture Group in the Computer Laboratory. The successful candidates will be expected to take up the appointment by 1 October 2007 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Candidates should have an outstanding record of research in an area that overlaps or complements the interests of current members of the Department. The ideal candidates will be individuals whose vision of the subject's future will have international impact.
For the Systems post, particular preference will be given to candidates whose interests are in one or more areas of networks, operating systems, and virtualization. Systems Research in the Computer Laboratory embraces networks, operating systems, virtualization, and distributed applications. It covers problems of scale from the very small (operating systems for sensor nodes) up to the very large (network architectures), and from the slow (latency caused by speed of light) to the fast (interaction of electronics and photonics).
For the Computer Architecture post, particular preference will be given to candidates whose interests are in VLSI circuit and computer design. Computer Architecture in the Computer Laboratory embraces VLSI and FPGA design, synchronous and asynchronous circuit techniques, parallel processing, networks-on-chip, and simulation techniques. It covers problems from the transistor-level up to processor and interconnect design.
Group boundaries are very flexible and successful candidates will be expected to contribute to other areas including broader themes such as the challenges posed by sustainability of the planet. The Laboratory provides an environment in which engagement between theoretical and practical aspects of Computer Science, and with industry, is encouraged.
The two people appointed will be expected to teach subjects central to Computer Science, including operating systems, digital communications, digital circuits, and computer architecture, in addition to their own specialities. An interest in the interplay between teaching, long-term research, and deployment of new technologies is especially welcome.
Appointments made at University Lecturer level will be for a probationary period of five years, with appointment to the retiring age thereafter. The pensionable scale of stipends for a University Lecturer is currently £32,795 to £41,544 a year and, from 1 August 2007, will be £33,779 to £42,791 a year.
Further details of the Department can be found at http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/. Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Peter Robinson, Deputy Head of Department (e-mail email@example.com).
Applications should be sent by 12 noon on 15 June 2007 to the Secretary of the Appointments Committee, Computer Laboratory, 15 JJ Thomson Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 0FD, or by e-mail (with documents in PDF format) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and should include: a curriculum vitae (résumé); a list of publications; a one-page statement of research interests and future plans; and a completed form PD18 (parts I and III only) including the names and e-mail addresses of three referees.
