The University of Lincoln is an ambitious Higher Education institution. The University was awarded Gold – the highest standard possible – in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework: a nationwide assessment of teaching quality across UK higher education institutions. It is also committed to growing student numbers, using new partnerships with external organizations and innovative forms of programme delivery.

The School of Computer Science is one of the University’s more mature and longer-standing Schools and is central to the University’s strategy to build its STEM provision and research excellence in the sciences. Its portfolio of research and teaching covers a wide spectrum of Computer Science, with strong research activity in two core Centres – the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS) and the Laboratory Of Vision Engineering (LoVE) – and two research groups in Machine Learning/Data Science (mLearn) and in Interactive/Playful Technologies (intLab). The School offers undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and Games Computing, as well as a number of MSc programmes (e.g. Computer Science, Robotics & Autonomous Systems, Games Development & Design, and Intelligent Vision). It has also entered into an international transnational educational partnership (with more foreseen), whereby dual awards are available at the partner institutions. The School is also building up its internationally recognised research and teaching environment, with a focus on interdisciplinary working and research-engaged/-informed teaching.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Senior Lecturer, who is specialised in one or more of the following areas: Data Science, Big Data Analytics, Cyber Security and/or Networking, to support the development and delivery of the curriculum in our Computing area which covers a range of undergraduate, postgraduate courses in Computer Science.

The post holder will take responsibility for the academic quality assurance and management of these programmes, and will be expected to contribute to the delivery of some modules on these and other awards across the School of Computer Science. Additionally, the post holder will be expected to lead in the strategic development of teaching and learning and education consultancy activities, by cultivating national and international partnerships to introduce new areas of activity.

The University is committed to building a culturally diverse institution, where all staff and students can flourish and feel valued for their contribution and individuality. We are encouraging talented people, whatever their background, to work and study here. All appointments are made on merit. We particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified female academics, as they are currently under-represented in positions within the School.
