Heriot-Watt University is creating 20 (professorial and associated) academic posts across a range of disciplines. Building on our position as a leading research and knowledge transfer institution, as outlined in our Focus on the Future strategy http://www.heriotwattfocusonthefuture.hw.ac.uk/ , we seek research leaders and ambitious early career researchers to lead and drive research in key inter-disciplinary themes, including Information Systems.
Significant strategic investment over the coming years, in our infrastructure and especially in research leadership, will ensure that we meet our ambitious plans for continuing growth at Heriot-Watt’s international campuses in Edinburgh, Galashiels, Orkney and Dubai. A further campus in Malaysia is under development and students are expected to start in 2013.
All this means we are now in a unique position - with opportunities to invest in the brightest talent, coupled with a confident strategy that includes Scottish research pooling and alliances with other institutions and focus on important inter-disciplinary themes.
If you are curious about the opportunities created by our strategy, please submit a short CV to Professor Nick Taylor, Head of Computer Science email@example.com or to Professor Rob Pooley firstname.lastname@example.org
