Research Fellow In Ubiquitous Computing

at University of Melbourne

School of Computing and Information Systems Melbourne School of Engineering

Salary: $98,775 - $117,290 p.a. plus 9.5% superannuation

The University of Melbourne's School of Computing and Information Systems is seeking a Research Fellow to develop techniques for context sensing using mobile & wearable devices, and behavioural modelling. The research will focus on the development of mobile sensing techniques to capture and model human behavior. Candidates should demonstrate extremely strong skills in developing for mobile platforms, and data analysis and machine learning techniques. A strong publication record in a relevant field is essential. Experience with Ubiquitous Computing and Human Computer Interaction is highly desirable, particularly experience in conducting experimental studies with human participants. This position is available as part of a major investment by the University of Melbourne to substantially expand its UbiComp and HCI research.

You will conduct independent research, leading to the preparation and publication of research outcomes in conferences and journals. You will be located in the School of Computing and Information Systems in the Melbourne School of Engineering, and will join the Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces at the University of Melbourne. You will be expected to be an active member of the School, collaborating with other researchers. You may undertake small amounts of teaching and research supervision directly related to your area of research, as required.

The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this, the School is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across engineering disciplines. Under a Special Measure, under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) the School is seeking to lift the representation of women from 20% in 2014 to at least 25% over the next 5 years, and strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates.
