The Schools of Physics and Chemistry at the University of Bristol seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Scientific Computing.  This part time post is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development and delivery of nationally leading practices for teaching, learning and assessment.

The role holder will be responsible for the development and delivery of new teaching content and methods in scientific computing in the physical sciences.  This position is part of a new faculty-led initiative to introduce degree programmes involving Scientific Computing. The initial programmes in this area (BSc/MSci Chemistry/Physics with Scientific Computing) will be admitting students from autumn 2020, and there will be significant opportunity to contribute to the preparation and development of content, both independently and collaboratively on units led by other members of staff.  The position will be part of the Bristol Scientific Computing centre (BriSC).

You will be expected to plan your own activity, contributing to teaching related administration and course development discussions, working closely with relevant staff. You will also be expected to act as tutor to students. You will be provided with an academic mentor with a view to developing competencies and the ability to take on a wider range of responsibilities.

The successful applicant will hold a good honours degree and a PhD in a science or mathematics subject, or in computer science. They will have a high level of computational, programming and analytical skills, ideally with some post-doctoral experience in applied scientific computing. They will also have significant experience of teaching in higher education, and the ability to develop, implement and evaluate educational tools and content.

We are hoping that the successful candidate will be able to take up the role as soon as possible.
