The Department of Informatics is seeking applications from candidates for the position of Lecturer in Computer Science on its exciting new Academic Education Pathway (AEP), starting in Summer 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The successful applicant for this post will be primarily focused on teaching in the area of computer science, with a focus on enhancing educational quality and innovation. She or he will be involved in teaching both Department of Informatics programmes and aid in the delivery of the Computer Science and Engineering module of the King’s International Foundation Programme, working closely with the English Language Centre. The division between teaching in both areas will be approximately 50:50. The successful applicant will need knowledge and awareness of current research and practice in an area relevant to computer science.

The Academic Education Pathway is focused on the delivery of education, education-related scholarship, and leadership in education. It creates a clear pathway for recognition, reward and opportunities for advancement for exceptional educators.

Applicants must have a PhD in computer science or a related field. The successful applicant will be part of the Department of Informatics and will be expected to contribute to its wider activities and development. Engagement in research related to computer science where applicable in improving research-led teaching on taught programmes is encouraged.

Our staff and students come from all over the world and the Department is proud of its friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged with a number of family-friendly policies, including the operation of a core hours policy, the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from periods of extended absence, for example maternity leave. The Department of Informatics is committed to ensuring an inclusive interview process and will reimburse up to £250 towards any additional care costs (for a dependent child or adult) incurred as a result of attending an interview for this position. 

This post will be offered on an indefinite contract.

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent.

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation. The candidates will have the opportunity to meet members of the department on the presentation day. Presentations and interviews are scheduled to be held either the week commencing 26th August or 2nd September 2019.
