We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in the area of Cyber Security & Networks. You will deliver modules in core computer science and contribute specifically to areas related to Cyber Security, Networks, and Cloud Computing, both in theory and in practice, including topics such as security fundamentals, physical and virtual networks, encryption and secure programming. You will contribute to the University’s ambition to achieve TEF Gold in the Computing subject area, international recognition as a research-intensive and innovative institution, encourage or facilitate commercial enterprise and partnerships, supervise postgraduate research students and contribute to wider activities of the School.

Candidates should possess a PhD or equivalent experience, ideally in computer or information science and preferably with a track record in the delivery of study modules at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level.

Candidates with a relevant industry or professional background that complements the School's current staff profiles are welcome. Considering the potential scope of applications, a tangible experience of defence, military, digital policing and/or security domains would specially be desirable in order to complement our current expertise, and to engage with or develop related programmes in the School.
