Shape the future. Starting with your own.

Imagine working in an environment where your contribution is so far reaching that you will be changing the world - this is reality - if you choose.  

We are marking our 75th anniversary but that doesn't mean we are resting on our laurels - we are pushing boundaries to enable you to pursue your research interests and inspire the next generation. 

Whether you’re pursuing a new career path in higher education, returning to work after a career break, aspiring to create entrepreneurial opportunities or looking to develop existing lecturing skills, the University of Southampton is the place to do something truly unique with your expertise. 

Join us, and you’ll have the scope to create your own opportunities. For example, one of our colleagues came to us in 2017 with an industrial research background. Since then, she’s built a strong publishing record, mentored students as a senior tutor, advised industrial partners, and been awarded a research council grant. With our support, she’s directed her own progress and is also leading a new Centre for Healthcare Technology research - working with hospital clinicians and electronics experts to shape the next generation of healthcare. She was promoted to a Professor at the start of 2021. 

Ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide, we’re bold, progressive and keen to push the boundaries of what we’re teaching our students - and what we’re learning alongside them. So we encourage and support our lecturers to pursue their research, develop enterprise activities and take advantage of other opportunities within their fields of interest. After all, when everyone brings and shares their own ideas and findings, it helps us to stay at the forefront of thinking in electronics and computer science. With major sector Centres for Machine Intelligence, Healthcare Technologies and Internet of Things, and the Academic Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security Research and Teaching, our reputation for teaching, research and enterprise is quite exceptional. 

To apply, you’ll need a PhD, or equivalent professional qualifications, with extensive research experience and a collaborative approach to working across research areas and disciplines. It’s not essential that you have teaching experience, but you must have the confidence and presence to inspire students – through both group lecturing and one-to-one mentoring. Whatever you bring to the team, we’ll support you to develop your presentation skills and keep making progress in our forward-thinking School.  

Our anniversary is being marked with a major strategic investment into Computer Science and if you have expertise in one or mre of the following areas we'd love to hear from you.

  • Human Centric Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Human System Interaction
  • Automation and Robotics
