Job description
Lecturer in Computing Informatics (E-Health)- Permanent - Full Time

Build your academic career in Business Information Technology with Edinburgh Napier University. 

With over 70 academics, 1400 students, professional accreditation from the British Computer Society and some of the most impressive computing lab facilities in a UK university, the School of Computing is highly regarded and one of the UK's largest computing departments at the heart of Scotland's inspiring capital.

This new vacancy has been created to support the expansion of the School’s teaching portfolio to meet the changing demand for skilled graduates and postgraduates. There will be an opportunity to participate in our planned curriculum development in e-health and informatics generally, including the development of related undergraduate and postgraduate modules. You will also actively contribute to our existing portfolio of information systems degrees.

A key direction for future teaching and research within the School is increasing understanding of the opportunities and risks for stakeholders in the healthcare sector that arise from current developments in technologies such as IoT, machine learning, blockchain, encryption and SSI, and the impact of regulatory developments including the GDPR. This is chance to develop e-health in an information system context, in collaboration as necessary with cybersecurity (through our Blockchain Identity lab), and data science academics and researchers, and our colleagues in the Schools of Applied Science and Health and Social Care. Your work will help you to develop the information systems skills and knowledge required to support and improve health and healthcare delivery.

We are looking for someone who can demonstrate enthusiasm for working in a cross-disciplinary manner with healthcare specialists in applied research and in the development of teaching to enhance employability of our graduates. You will have the opportunity to expand your industry connections through our existing networks and by visiting students on one-year industry placements and on our employer-based Graduate Apprentice programme.
