Imperial College London is delighted to offer a postdoctoral position in computer science. The deadline for applying is December 24, 2018.

The Department of Computing is a leading department of Computer Science among UK Universities, and has consistently been awarded the highest research rating. In the 2014 REF assessment, The Department was ranked third (1st in the Research Intensity table published by The Times Higher), and was rated as “Excellent” in the previous national assessment of teaching quality. The Imperial College Centre for Cryptocurrency Research and Engineering was established in April 2015 as a joint initiative of the Department of Computing and the Faculty of Engineering in recognition of the potential for blockchain and smart contract technology to fundamentally change the way human society deals with contracts, identity, patents, copyright, supply chains, votes, and more.
