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

Space and Earth Observation (LISEO) and the recently announced Space Park
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

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.
