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.

Whether you are an established academic who currently holds an equivalent position, or a researcher seeking the opportunity to step up to an academic role, or returning to work after a career break,  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 joined us in 2017 with an industrial research background. Since then, she’s built a strong publishing record, mentored students, advised industrial partners, and been awarded numerous grants. With our support, she’s directed her progress and is also spearheading research initiatives in Healthcare Technology - working with hospital clinicians and electronics experts. She was promoted to a Professor in 2021.

You’ll need a PhD, or equivalent professional qualifications, with a strong publication record, and able to demonstrate delivery of teaching in a manner that meaningfully engages students. It must have a track-record of innovative research in Computer Science and a desire to build a strong research team.
