Research Assistants/Fellows -Intelligent Media Technologies

Intelligent Media Systems & Services Research Laboratory (www.imss.rdg.ac.uk)

Interactive Pervasive Computing Research Themes

School of Systems Engineering

University of Reading

Pay grade: 6

Pay scale: �25134 - � 32796 (approx �37K- �47.5K) per annum -subject to annual adjustment in accordance with national agreements.

The University of Reading is one of the top twenty research-intensive universities in the UK. The Intelligent Media Systems & Services Research Laboratory (IMSS, www.imss.reading.ac.uk) is an internationally well-established and dynamic group with a large and expanding portfolio of EU/DTI/MoD/EPSRC-funded research projects in strategic Computer Science and ICT fields and involving close alliances with world-class academic and industrial players in the UK and globally. IMSS Research is pushing forward the frontiers of innovation in advanced model-driven and service-oriented semantic-cognitive architectures as underpinned by agent technologies, middleware, ambient intelligence, and, multi-modal interfaces including virtual/augmented reality to realise and formally validate smart and secure environments.

We are offering to self-motivated individuals with research leadership experience, the opportunity to work within a highly creative team, enjoy international collaborative research and present their work at centres of excellence in Europe and beyond.

You will have:

A PhD or Masters Degree qualification in Computer Science or in a closely associated discipline with software and systems engineering experience (exceptionally a 1st Class Honours Degree with a relevant final year project may be considered).
