It is a world-class centre of expertise in algorithms, data analytics, data management, experimental data science, knowledge representation, and program verification.  We engage in a broad spectrum of both fundamental and applied research, host two research centres, the Birkbeck Institute of Data Analytics (www.bida.bbk.ac.uk) and the Birkbeck Knowledge Lab (www.klab.bbk.ac.uk/research), and are a key partner in the recently founded national Institute of Coding (www.dcs.bbk.ac.uk/about/institute-of-coding).

We require applicants to have completed a Ph.D. or equivalent in a relevant field and have established an international reputation for outstanding research and publication in Computer Science, as well as a proven track record of working across disciplines.
