The University of Lincoln has built an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research. We were named as the Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021 and awarded Gold – the highest standard possible – in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework. The School of Computer Science has played a key part in achieving this success; we were highly ranked in the recent UK Research Excellence Framework (2021), where 86% of our research was classified as internationally excellent or world leading.
We have an exciting opportunity for a lecturer or senior lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) to join us in the School of Computer Science. The post would suit either an early career researcher, or more experienced academic seeking to develop a career in games technologies and/or human computer interaction.
You will contribute to both teaching and research in the school, and will be based in our interactive technologies research group (www.intlab.co.uk). The intLab embraces a strong interdisciplinary perspective, encompassing themes in HCI, games, virtual/augmented/mixed reality, accessibility, wellbeing, games AI and design, and civic engagement. IntLab has a growing reputation for high-quality research in this field (regularly publishing in venues such as CHI, CHI Play and FDG), and provides a supportive and enthusiastic environment within which you will be able to develop your career aspirations and contribute to our ambitious plans. You will be encouraged to engage in interdisciplinary research, and supervision of research students, and supported to produce high-quality publications and funding proposals.
We expect that the successful candidate will teach primarily on our games programmes, which includes BSc Games Computing and MSc Games Development and Design. There will be opportunities to contribute to the development of these programmes. You will be involved in tutoring and supervising students at all levels, and you will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development and direction of the school (for example, leading on new initiatives which align with the school’s strategic objectives).
Lecturers are expected to develop their craft, and the University provides support including mentoring, professional development, and support towards achieving HEA qualification. The post holder will also carry out additional activities in support of the academic mission of the school, which will include the pastoral support of undergraduate and postgraduate students.
