Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Assistant/Associate Professor) Positions in Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning/Data Science/Digital Technologies Imperial College London - United Kingdom Attractive salary, benefits and start-up package

With first deadline on the 17th of January and final deadline on the 28th of February, Imperial College London invites applications for up to 13 full-time permanent faculty member positions at the Lecturer (Assistant Professor) level, who will contribute to research, teaching and service at the College's Imperial-X (I-X) initiative. Qualified candidates may also be appointed at the Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) level. Of these posts 4 will be part of the Mathematics department. The faculty positions will be part of the College's flagship I-X initiative, which is a new collaborative environment for research, education, and entrepreneurship across artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, statistics, and digital technologies. The goal of I-X is to realise new models for research, education, and entrepreneurship that go beyond traditional siloes imposed by academic disciplines, thus forming a blueprint for the University of the Future. At I-X, we value research in both foundational and theoretical underpinnings, practical applied areas, transdisciplinary research, and digital innovation. I-X benefits from a strategic investment by the College, which includes new facilities on Imperial's White City and South Kensington campuses. For more information about I-X, please visit Appointed candidates will also be part of one of the following host departments: Department of Computing, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), Department of Mathematics (which includes Statistics, Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics, and Pure and Financial Mathematics), and the Imperial College Business School. As part of your application, please indicate your desired host department or departments. We will also consider candidates with an interest in joint appointments with industry or with multiple Departments. The department of Mathematics is open to applicants from a range of backgrounds with a connection to Learning. Example directions are included below but are not exclusive.

The department highlights AI/ML/Data Science and its intersection with: Topics in Statistics including AI interpretation, Cybersecurity, Dependent data and Health Topics in Pure Mathematics including Discrete and non-commutative probability, combinatorics, topology, operator algebras and number theory.

Topics in Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics including Data driven Applied Mathematical Modelling, Scientific computing, Global optimization, Optimal control theory, PDEs constrained optimization, Mathematics of planet earth, Social science, e.g. the theory of mean field games, Single cell data and Health records/social networks.

Topics in Mathematical Finance including nonparametric scenario generation for backtesting trading strategies, data-driven optimization; Decentralised Finance, e.g., endogenous formation of decentralised payment networks; and Quantum Computing.

We offer an attractive salary package (including a pension scheme with significant employer contributions) as well as generous terms and conditions of service. The posts in Computing/EEE/Mathematics are permanent (comparable to tenured faculty positions); those in the Business School are tenure-track. All posts include a substantial start-up package for establishing a research activity at I-X.
