Applications are invited for any suitable member of academic staff within a SICSA Institution to co-lead the SICSA Cyber Physical Systems Research Theme.
Research pooling across Scotland is entering an exciting phase. Having recently released the review of pooling, the SFC are considering a number of recommendations which present opportunities for someone interested in this theme leadership role. As part of this, theme leaders are taking on increasingly public facing roles on behalf of SICSA. For example, our AI theme leaders are now part of the government strategy group developing a national AI strategy for Scotland. While one of the Data Science theme leaders is starting to co-chair a large conference with the DataLab here in Scotland on behalf of SICSA. Theme leaders are called upon to help shape and direct the theme but also to provide a face and national representation for their theme area.
SICSA is the Scottish Funding Council Research Pool in Informatics and Computer Science. The goal of SICSA is to cohere the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science research communities to help increase critical mass and to enable cooperation in research, teaching and Knowledge Exchange.
