Senior Research Fellow[edit]

Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK

Grade 8: £37,012 - £44,166 p.a.

We are looking for an exceptional Senior Research Fellow to oversee the creation and management of 3D visualisation solutions across the 2020 Science research programme. The post is funded by a large EPSRC grant and will involve working on projects based across three principle sites, Oxford, UCL and Microsoft Research, Cambridge. The postholder will be expected to design and implement a visualisation strategy across the programme to determine where visualisation solutions would be most appropriate and the form they might take.

We will consider candidates from various backgrounds, but all must be able to give evidence of their ability to produce outstanding and novel scientific visualisations and communicate their work effectively to a diverse mix of academics and scientists. Applicants should have a degree or PhD in a relevant area (e.g. Information Design, Computational Science, Mathematical or Computational Biology, Applied Mathematics, or Computer Science) coupled with an excellent portfolio of research in visualisation or information design.

The Fellow will undertake research as a member of the University of Oxford, based in one of the departments associated with the programme and be responsible to the Principal Investigators of the programme.

The post is available for up to 3 years (with possible 1 year extension). The post may be offered at grade 7 (£29,249 - £35,938 p.a.) depending on experience, with an appropriate amendment to the duties.
