2 Lecturer Positions in Model-Driven Systems Engineering
University of Leicester
College of Science and Engineering
Department of Informatics
Salary Grade 8 - £38,183 to £46,924 per annum
Together our staff and students are discovering innovative ways to change the world for the better and there has never been a more exciting time for you to join us. We are ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide and have an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. We are led by discovery and innovation, with the synergy between research and learning at the core of our activity.
These are exciting times for Informatics at Leicester. As part of a flagship investment aimed at increasing capacity and expertise to participate in interdisciplinary research, we are creating six new posts to support our holistic approach to Data-Driven Application Engineering for a range of domains led by our interdisciplinary research institutes and networks:
Space and Earth Observation (LISEO) and the recently announced Space Park Leicester.
Precision Medicine (LPMI) and the Bioinformatics Network.
Cultural and Media Economies (CAMEo) and the Network for Computational Social Science.
The Department of Informatics has long-standing strengths in Theoretical Computer Science, Algorithms, Software Engineering and HCI. Through our new appointments, we are seeking to develop our capacity in Model-driven Systems Engineering, recognising that software works in specific physical, socio-economic, technological and environmental contexts which have to be part of the engineering process.
We will consider all candidates whose research focuses on model-driven systems engineering but are especially interested in the two following profiles.
1. Sustainable socio-technical systems engineering addresses socio-economic, technological and environmental factors from a perspective of requirements engineering and high-level design, requiring skills in areas such as
- Model-based requirements engineering and analysis;
- Social, economic and environmental impact of software-intensive systems;
- Scalable and secure software infrastructure, e.g., using distributed ledger technologies, big data or cloud technologies;
- Systems reengineering;
2. Cyber-physical systems engineering focuses on technological and physical aspects from a design and quality assurance point of view including
- Model-based testing, verification, and validation;
- Engineering of self-learning, autonomous and adaptive systems;
- Analysis techniques for (re)configurable systems and product lines;
For both posts, experience or potential in one or more of the following areas is desirable
- Applications of machine learning in software engineering;
- Modern software processes, such as agile development and devops;
- Engineering of transport and automotive systems or medical applications;
- Applications of the above in industrial or interdisciplinary settings;
The main emphasis for selection will be on research excellence, but the role also includes the development and delivery of teaching in the respective areas as well as contributions to the administration and management of the Department. University of Leicester is a research-intensive university. Different areas of activity are balanced by a departmental workload model to ensure fair and transparent balance between staff and different areas of activity.
