The Department of Computer Science at Royal Holloway is looking to appoint a teaching fellow to support high-quality teaching and supervision at undergraduate and postgraduate taught level.

We carry out outstanding research and deliver excellent teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. We ranked 17th overall among UK computer science departments in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021, Times Higher Education ranking). We are in the top 10 in the UK for graduate prospects (Guardian 2022) and our software engineering teaching has been hailed as a ‘best practice’ example by BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.

Specific duties and responsibilities of this post includes: contributing to teaching, assessment, and supervision of student projects; coordinating (or assisting in the coordination) and delivering laboratory-based teaching in the Department; marking coursework and returning feedback to students; contributing to the development of software applications that support laboratory-based teaching or departmental administration; and contributing to departmental outreach activities, including Open Days, Applicant Visit Days, Taster Days, and participation in festivals.

The successful candidate will hold a bachelors or postgraduate degree in Computer Science or equivalent. The post is for two years and is available immediately. A successful candidate who is not enrolled in studies at the moment would be appointed via fixed-term contract, whilst a successful candidate who is a current PhD student would work through a casual working arrangement.

Please note that it will not be possible for the College to issue a Certificate of Sponsorship for successful candidates as the pro-rata salary will not meet the minimum threshold set by UK Visas and Immigration. Successful candidates will therefore need to be eligible to work in the UK or have limited leave to remain in the UK and associated right to work for the duration of their employment with the College, in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. 

The Department holds an Athena Bronze Award in recognition for our commitment to increasing the participation of women in Computer Science at all levels, from undergraduate students to the highest academic roles.  We particularly welcome female applicants as they are under-represented amongst academic staff in the Department.
