The Department of Computer Science at the University of York, UK is
recruiting 6 new Lecturers (US equivalent: Assistant Professor). These are
permanent positions with an expectation of performing both world leading
research and teaching.

The Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) research group at York (
https://www.cs.york.ac.uk/cvpr) particularly welcomes applicants working in
areas related to computer vision, machine learning and computer graphics.
Candidates should hold or be close to completing a PhD in a relevant area
and should have a track record of publishing in the top venues in their

Research groups in Computer Science at York are focussed into four themes.
The most relevant to the CVPR group is “Beyond Human Vision: novel
approaches and algorithms for computer vision, pattern recognition and face
analysis”, though the Analytics (including AI) theme and Image analysis
within the Healthcare theme are also relevant.

Collaboration opportunities

Besides collaborating with the five academics already working in vision,
there is also an opportunity to collaborate with other research groups in
the department (such as AI, Games and HCI), other departments in the
university (we have active collaborations with Psychology, Environment and
the York NeuroImaging Centre), the Digital Creativity Labs (
