Research Fellow
User Modelling and Adaptive Interfaces for Learning Technologies
University of Birmingham -School of Computer Science

Salary from £27,578 to £38,140 a year.

The post is available from 15 January 2013 and is currently funded for up to 24 months.

We are looking for a Research Fellow to join the HCI centre at the University of Birmingham. The HCI centre is a joint venture between the Schools of Computer Science and Electronic, Electrical and Computer Engineering. We take a people-centred perspective on interaction and technology to lead the development of our understanding on how people interact with technologies, and how one transforms the other.

The Research Fellow will join the EU funded Technology Enhanced Learning project ILearnRW. The project aims to develop a personalised tutoring system to assist dyslexic children in reading and writing. This includes user modelling of a child's dyslexia type to match teaching material to the child's level. The approach will be interdisciplinary drawing on computer science, HCI and design, education and cognitive psychology.

The Research Fellow will be expected to conduct internationally leading research on user modelling and adaptive interfaces. S/He will develop research objectives and proposals for own or joint research and will contribute to writing future bids for research funding. S/He will also analyse and interpret research findings and results with the aim of disseminating them to top international journals and conferences.

To apply you must have completed, or be near completion of a PhD degree relevant to the research area or equivalent qualifications or research experience. You should have a proven high level of analytical capability and programming skills, as well as experience in user modelling and adaptive user interfaces.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr. Mina Vasalou ([log in to unmask]) at the School of Computer Science.

Closing date: 11 November 2012
