Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer in Information Security in the Information Security Department.

The Information Security Group (ISG) at Royal Holloway is looking to appoint two excellent permanent members of academic staff to contribute to its research and teaching. The applicant should have a high-quality research profile that fits within the wide range of research undertaken by the ISG. Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm for research as well as teaching and communicating with diverse audiences.

The ISG was founded in 1990 and carries out research and teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, with particularly high numbers of master’s students – we are one of the very few academic departments worldwide devoted solely to Information Security, enabling our staff to focus their teaching in this area. Our MSc in Information Security is one of the oldest programmes in the world, having started in 1992 and has a large alumni network with over 4,000 graduates.  We have hosted, and continue to host, a series of Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) in cyber security, which has enabling us to recruit 10 fully funded and first-rate PhD students every year, contributing to a large and vibrant PhD community.

We are involved in a range of inter/multidisciplinary research activities, spanning technology to psychology and social sciences. Our research strengths have continued to generate significant collaborative opportunities from industry and other leading universities.

We are now recruiting academic members of staff who can complement or strengthen our existing research and teaching in Information Security. We are also interested in candidates with interests in broader multidisciplinary research. The successful candidate must hold a PhD or equivalent, and will have a proven research record. Experience in attracting funding, engaging with industry, or contributing to outreach activities will also be valuable.

The appointee will be expected to contribute to the full range of departmental activities, including undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and the supervision of Cyber Security projects. General academic duties and responsibilities of this post include conducting individual or collaborative research projects; producing high-quality outputs for publication in high-profile journals or conference proceedings; and applying for research funding.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing.
