A full-time opportunity has arisen for a Finance Assistant to join the Department of Computer Science, working closely with the Finance Team Leader. The purpose of this role is to ensure that financial transactions are recorded and processed in accordance with University financial controls.
We are pleased to announce the opening of two full-time post-doctoral positions at Oxford University as part of the Networked Quantum Information Technologies (NQIT) EPSRC Quantum Technology Hub. The Hub will take some of the UK’s world-leading experimental work in ion traps and photonic networks and translate it into quantum computing technology through a highly ambitious and multidisciplinary programme. The positions are within the theory groups of Prof. Abramsky and Dr. Barrett, focusing on the areas of small-scale quantum computing, secure communications, and the verification of quantum technology. The work will support the overall theory, design, and applications development for quantum computing systems developed within the NQIT hub. The successful candidates will be contributing to the research project plan as well as collaborating with other groups, including leading experimental groups within the Oxford University Department of Physics, and the theory group of Dr Elham Kashefi (School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh).
We are looking for a highly-motivated software engineer to work on a number of projects across the 2020 Science programme (www.2020science.net). You will work closely with the senior developer in the specification, creation and support of a number of web applications through the full software development life-cycle. The ideal candidate will have a good breadth of understanding of open-source software and web technologies, the flexibility to be able to participate effectively in a number of areas of web application development, and an enthusiasm to learn new technologies quickly. Good communication skills are essential, as is the ability to work within a team and independently as required.

A research position is available, tenable immediately, attached to a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant obtained by Prof Michael Wooldridge. The project is entitled "Reasoning about Computational Economies" (RACE), and carries out work at the intersection of game theory, complexity, logic, and verification. The overall aim of the project is to develop the theory and tools required to understand how computer programs behave in the presence of self-interested behaviour. The specific assignment of responsibilities and areas of interest will be dependent on the actual appointments made - we strongly encourage applications from researchers whose skills and interests broadly match those of the project.
The Department of Computer Science proposes to appoint a full-time Departmental Lecturer in Computer Science (Databases) for a fixed term for up to five years from 1 April 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter (negotiable up to early October 2015).
The Department of Computer Science proposes to appoint an Associate Professor of Computer Science with effect from 1 October 2015 or a mutually agreed date prior to this. The successful candidate will be offered a Tutorial Fellowship at St Catherine’s College under arrangements described in the Job Description and Person Specification. The appointee will act as a tutor in computer science at St Catherine’s College, and will be a member of its Governing Body. This is a permanent full-time position based at the Department of Computer Science, Wolfson Building, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3QD and St Catherine’s College, Manor Road, Oxford, OX1 3UJ.
