The Department of Computing & Information Systems is seeking a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, with a specialism in databases and/or Big Data. You will join a vibrant Department, which provides a range of programmes and courses in the fields of computer science, software engineering, network technologies, security and forensics, business computing, digital media, and games design and development. The Department has a strong commitment to widening participation, diversity and internationalism and this is reflected in our staff and student profiles.

The post is suitable for an experienced academic with an existing research and teaching background in databases and/or Big Data, and we are particularly interested to hear from candidates who can show how their research can enhance our existing research strengths in Software and Network Engineering, Cybersecurity and Forensics, Disruptive Technologies, Games and Digital Media, and Technology-Enhanced Learning.

The position offers opportunities for research and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The Department has a strong and active research community, which includes prize-winning work on computer animations and simulations of fire and evacuation procedures. We also have active research groups in smart cities, security and forensics, crisis management, temporal reasoning, artificial intelligence, data mining, information system integrity, and technology enhanced learning. 

The Department has a strong portfolio of programmes, which have been highly rated by external examiners, industry professionals, and in the latest National Student Satisfaction survey. The Department also runs a large collaborative operation, with programmes of study being offered by partner centres around the world. You would be expected to contribute to the teaching of courses both on-campus and at collaborative centres, developing high quality teaching resources to be offered through a VLE (such as Moodle).
