Lecturer in machine learning and computer vision and lecturer in robot vision and autonomous systems

The University offers a unique opportunity for two individuals with outstanding research and leadership to join the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP).

The successful candidate is expected to build a research project portfolio to complement existing CVSSP strengths. The centre seeks to appoint two individuals with an excellent research track-record and international profile to lead future growth of research activities in one or more of the following areas:

  • Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition
  • Computer Vision
  • Robot Vision and Autonomous Systems
  • Intelligent Sensing and Sensor Networks
  • Audio-Visual Signal and Media Processing
  • Big Visual Data Understanding
  • Machine Intelligence.

We now seek individuals with strong research track-records and leadership potential who can develop the existing activities of CVSSP and exploit the synergetic possibilities that exist within the centre, across the University and regionally with UK industry. You will possess proven management and leadership qualities, demonstrating achievements in scholarship and research at a national and international level, and will have experience of teaching within HE.

CVSSP is one of the primary centres for computer vision & audio-visual signal processing in Europe with over 120 researchers, a grant portfolio of £18M and a track-record of pioneering research leading to technology transfer in collaboration with UK industry.  Related to this post CVSSP, in collaboration with the Surrey Centres for Clinical & Sleep Research, has recently been awarded £1.2M equipment funding to support research in sensor networks to monitor & measure people for healthcare in the community.  CVSSP forms part of the Department of Electronic Engineering, recognised as a top department for both Teaching and Research.

For an informal discussion, please contact Professor Adrian Hilton, Director of CVSSP (

Interviews are expected to take place in the week commencing 21st November 2016.
