Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Reader in Data Management for Ubiquitous Computing

Despite the significant advances in the capability and availability of
computational platforms and techniques across society, the
technological systems of today are still highly visible and intrusive
to the individuals who use them. The School of Computer Science at
Manchester has defined a grand challenge to investigate the
techniques, technologies and platforms that are required to enable
ubiquitous computing to play a transformative role in society.

The associated open issues and opportunities will require research and
innovation across a broad front, from devices, sensors and wearable
devices, through secure data integration and analysis, to the
computing and storage paradigms, architectures, micro-architectures
and associated technologies needed to deliver the capabilities and
services required in a technological integrated society.

To provide the extra impetus required to address the challenges above,
the School is investing in three new academic positions, to
complement, and establish new collaborations between, existing areas
of strength within the School.

Future ubiquitous computing systems will be data intensive systems, in
which data from diverse sources, of different qualities, with
different levels of sensitivity, and at potentially huge scale will
need to be captured, summarised, communicated, interrelated, managed
and analysed. As a result, we would be interested to receive
applications in areas of data intensive systems that can be shown to
be relevant to ubiquitous computing, such as data security/privacy,
data quality/uncertainty, distributed data-intensive systems, scalable
data analytics, and data management for novel architectures.

You should be educated to PhD level, have an excellent publication
record, show capability of developing a portfolio of funded research
activities in a multidisciplinary environment, and have a strong
commitment to excellence in teaching.
