Associate Lecturers in Computer Science

The School of Computer Science is looking to recruit new academics as part of a large on-going expansion of our academic staff. We wish to appoint two new Associate Lecturers to join our vibrant teaching and research community that is ranked amongst the top venues for Computer Science education and research worldwide.

Associate Lecturers provide the backbone of our teaching capability, focusing more on the delivery of high-quality taught programmes while still having opportunities for research. You will be committed to innovation and delivery of high quality teaching within the broad field of Computer Science and its applications. The successful candidate will be expected to be capable of teaching the subject to undergraduate and taught postgraduate students who come to us with a wide range of backgrounds. The Associate Lecturer comes with an Education focussed academic promotion track to Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Professor.

Excellent teaching skills and an interest in promoting knowledge exchange are essential. A PhD in a cognate discipline is an advantage, as is industrial or other experience. We are especially interested in individuals wanting to experiment and innovate in improving our student experience.

Informal enquiries can be directed to Professor Steve Linton – or Dr Dharini Balasubramaniam
