The post is for 0.2 FTE for two years and is available immediately.

Computer Science at Royal Holloway is seeking to appoint a 0.2 FTE teaching fellow to support high-quality teaching, supervision and software projects, and to promote entrepreneurship.

The department carries out outstanding research and delivers excellent teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, we ranked 11th in the UK for the quality of our research output. Our staff have also won several teaching awards and our teaching of software engineering was described as ‘Best Practice’ by the British Computer Society. We have also created a university-based software-development company (Code Groovers) through which we give our students the opportunity to engage in projects for real clients.

Specific duties and responsibilities of this post include: delivering modules in the areas of programming or software engineering, including team projects; assessing student work; supervising student projects; contributing to the development of software applications that support laboratory-based teaching; contributing to Code Groovers projects; and contributing to departmental outreach activities.

The successful candidates will hold a bachelors degree in Computer Science or equivalent. We will appoint a candidate with a proven record of sustained experience in delivering the full lifecycle of software projects as a professional. Experience in entrepreneurship is required as the Department is keen to promote entrepreneurship amongst our student body. Experience in leading teams of students in projects is desirable.

We are both close to Central London and 10 minutes by taxi from Heathrow Airport, and situated in the “M4 corridor”, home to a large number of leading-edge technology companies.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing. 
  • Free parking

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.

Please note that it will not be possible for the College to issue a Certificate of Sponsorship for successful candidates as this role does not fall into one of the standard occupational codes deemed eligible for sponsorship by UK Visas and Immigration and the pro-rata salary will not meet the minimum threshold set by UK Visas and Immigration. Successful candidates will therefore need to be eligible to work in the UK or have limited leave to remain in the UK and associated right to work for the duration of their employment with the College, in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.
