The University of Lincoln is an ambitious Higher Education institution. The University was awarded Gold – the highest standard possible – in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework: a nationwide assessment of teaching quality across UK higher education institutions. It is also committed to growing student numbers, using new partnerships with external organizations and innovative forms of programme delivery. The School of Computer Science has played a key part in achieving this success, pursuing a blend of fundamental, applied and interdisciplinary research, with particular strengths in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and Human-Computer Interaction.

The School of Computer Science seeks to appoint a permanent Lecturer, with established expertise within at least of one the following areas; Machine Learning, Data Science and or Big Data Analytics and related applications to support the development and delivery of the online curriculum in our Computing subject area, which covers a range of postgraduate courses in Computer Science. Additionally, you are expected to contribute to the School’s teaching activities, scholarship and professional practice, and to contribute to the delivery of modules on other awards across the School of Computer Science. You should be able to demonstrate an excellent track record in acquiring external funding; supervising postdoctoral researchers and PhD students; publishing in the highest quality journals and conferences; contributing to real-world applications with positive impacts on the wider society and economy; and conducting, directing and supervising research in line with the targets set by the school.

The University is committed to building a culturally diverse institution, where all staff and students can flourish and feel valued for their contribution and individuality.  We are encouraging talented people, whatever their background, to work and study here.  All appointments are made on merit. We particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified female academics, as they are currently under-represented in positions within the School.

This post is on the Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice role profile, developed for individuals who have a focus on scholarship and/or professional practice, alongside their teaching.
