It is the first ever branch campus of a UK University abroad, earning the University the distinction of the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the field of international achievement – the first award of its kind to an academic institution. The first students were admitted to the Malaysia Campus in September 2000 when courses in Business and Management, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Computer Science and IT were offered. The Malaysia Campus has recently moved to a new purpose-built campus on a 101 acre site near Semenyih, 30km south of Kuala Lumpur city centre. The campus has been designed to reflect the attributes of University Park Campus in Nottingham and occupies a scenic position overlooking green hills. It is close to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and has easy access to Kuala Lumpur. It is also close to Cyberjaya, the Silicon Valley of Malaysia and Putrajaya, the new administrative capital of Malaysia. The construction of the new campus at Semenyih has allowed the introduction of a broader range of degree programmes, including laboratory intensive programmes like Mechanical, Chemical and Civil Engineering, Pharmacy and Plant Biotechnology. There will be further expansion of the Semenyih Campus over the next few years, which is designed to increase the overall capacity and to enhance the research facilities. The “Semenyih Campus” opened in August 2005 and teaching started there in September 2005. The campus provides a high quality living environment for students in addition to state- of–the-art teaching and learning facilities. Over 2600 students are currently studying on campus. Computer Science at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus Established from the beginning of the UNMC venture, the School of Computer Science, within the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, continues to attract students to its BSc (Hons) degrees in Computer Science, Computer Science & Management Studies and Computing & Information Systems. Computer Science at the Malaysia Campus is a fully integrated part of the School in Nottingham and the programmes offered at the Malaysia Campus are the same as those offered at Nottingham. Professor Andrzej Bargiela, Director of Computer Science at the Malaysia Campus is the line-manager for this appointment. In addition to the undergraduate courses students are registered for MPhil and PhD degrees and many of the current staff are actively involved in research. The overarching research theme of Intelligent Decision Support has close links to and complements the research portfolio of the research activity in the School in Nottingham. The School benefits from the Faculty support for mathematics teaching, and technical and administrative support. The School of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham The School is an internationally established institution pursuing leading edge research in areas such as automated scheduling, mixed reality, interactive media and foundations of programming. The School received the excellent grade of 5 for the quality of its research at the last Research Assessment Exercise in 2001. Its activities are organized through 4 successful research groups: Automated Scheduling, Optimisation and Planning Foundations of Programming Interactive Media Vision and Image Processing Further information is available about each of the research groups at the School’s website: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/cs/research/research_teams_introduction.php THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM MALAYSIA CAMPUS SCHOOL OF COMPUTER SCIENCE Job Title: Assistant/Associate Professors in Computer Science (Two posts) Contract Status: This post will be offered on contract with the University of Nottingham in Malaysia.
