              PROFESSOR OF COMPUTER AND INFORMATION SCIENCE
                School of Computer & Information Science
           Academic Level E  $81,780 per annum (under review)
                                Tenurable

Applications are invited for a Chair within the School of Computer and
Information Science, which is one of three Schools in the Faculty of
Information Technology.

Information technology, and computing in particular, have been designated as
core areas of research by the University of South Australia.  The School of
Computer and Information Science has developed a strong research profile
over the past 5 years.  In addition, the industrially-relevant teaching
programme continues to be enhanced by the addition of new undergraduate and
postgraduate degrees in software engineering, the introduction of degrees
which combine computing with management and multimedia and developments in
distance learning.

The Advanced Computing Research Centre, the ACRC, provides a focus for
research within the School.  The ACRC is structured into four research
concentrations: concurrent systems, database systems, intelligent systems,
and software engineering.  The concurrent systems area is headed by
Professor George Milne who is also Director of the ACRC.  The Professor
appointed to this position will provide research leadership in one of the
other research concentrations as well as contribute to the development of
teaching programs in the School.

Our highest priority is to appoint a Professor with an established research
reputation in the area of database systems in its broadest sense.  It would
be desirable for candidates to have an interest in emerging areas of
databases including data mining, multimedia, world wide web and mobile
databases.  Interests which embrace one or more of our other research
concentrations would be seen to be attractive.

We also have interest in receiving applications from outstanding candidates
with expertise in other areas of computer science, particularly software
engineering and the design of large-scale systems. Relevant expertise would
include specification languages, design methodologies, validation techniques
and systems engineering.  We are aiming to develop a strong research
presence in this area, building on existing strengths in language theory,
concurrency and formal verification, such that we will be in a position to
influence the design of the complex, large scale systems of the future.

The successful applicant will have an international reputation and will have
demonstrated performance as an innovative researcher as measured by
publications, research grants and other means such as prototype systems,
software and patents.

The University of South Australia is a multi-campus university in Adelaide,
the capital of the state of South Australia.  Adelaide is a city of a
million people bordered by beautiful beaches to the west and the Mount Lofty
Ranges to the east.  The city enjoys a Mediterranean climate, has excellent
educational, cultural and sporting facilities and is the centre of the
Australian wine industry.

Applicants must obtain a position description and lodgement details from the
