The School of Engineering, Physical and Mathematical Sciences (EPMS) at Royal Holloway, University of London comprises the Departments of Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Information Security, Mathematics and Physics.  Due to growth in our popular Electronic Engineering portfolio of MSc courses, we are now recruiting a permanent member of academic staff to support teaching and scholarship in the broad field of Mobile Optical Communications and Signal Processing. The successful candidate must hold a PhD and will be expected to contribute to the development of teaching and scholarship in two or more of the areas of Mobile Communications, Real-Time DSP, Cyber-Security, Software Engineering, Control Engineering, Electronic Circuits and/or Machine Learning. Experience in engaging with industry and contributing to outreach activities is also essential.

The successful candidate will be asked to contribute to a range of departmental activities, including teaching and project supervision over a range of topics related to their specialism.  The post holder will be expected to teach and supervise at undergraduate and postgraduate level with responsibility for the design, management and delivery of their teaching. They will also participate in departmental administration as requested by the Head of Department. 

As one of Royal Holloway's youngest departments, Electronic Engineering is dedicated to creating a bright future for our community of electronic engineers. The products of electronic engineering are all around us in our daily lives, creating a demand for excellent engineers with a creative passion to put technology into the service of humankind. Despite being new, our reputation continues to grow with our current ranking (Complete University Guide 2023) placing the department in the top third of the sector.
