Keele University is renowned for its exciting approach to higher education, innovative research, beautiful campus, strong community spirit and excellent student experience.  With a turnover in excess of £150 million, over 10,000 students and a total staff of approximately 2000, the University provides high quality teaching across a wide range of academic and vocational subjects and promotes world-class research. The University hosts the largest UK Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) with an associated Centre for Doctoral Training based in the School of Computing and Mathematics.

Applications are welcome from dynamic and enthusiastic individuals committed to high quality teaching and research in any relevant field of Computer Science (e.g. software engineering, evolutionary systems, security, human-computer interaction, biological computation, machine learning, formal methods, distributed systems, smart energy, high-performance computing – but not restricted to these particular fields). Applicants will have interests that complement our existing research strengths while broadening the scope of our teaching expertise.  

The lectureship posts are part of continued growth and expansion of Computer Science at Keele, which presents many new opportunities for the development of synergies in both teaching and research. Candidates will be expected to develop an active research programme that both complements and extends our existing research profile in Computer Science. Candidates are also expected to develop research collaborations with colleagues at Keele and elsewhere in strategic research areas of the University, such as smart energy, AI, big data or digital health.

The successful candidates will have a PhD in an appropriate area of Computer Science (or be very close to completion of his/her PhD) and will have a strong commitment to delivering high quality undergraduate teaching, including supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate research projects and the development and delivery of new modules. The post-holders will have the skills, enthusiasm and flexibility for teaching across a wide range of computer science topics and will also contribute to recruitment activities and administrative duties within our Computer Science programmes.
