We seek to appoint a lecturer with expertise in Data Mining to join a collegiate team of computer scientists. In Computer Science we deliver distinctive programmes at undergraduate and masters levels that achieve some of the highest employability rates for CS graduates in the UK. We value impactful research and our expertise includes AI, robotics, machine learning, natural language processing, HCI, digital health and software engineering, often spanning discipline boundaries. 

Your teaching duties may include the design and delivery of theory and practice-based modules at undergraduate and masters levels, for both conventional on-campus and degree apprenticeship programmes. You will also be expected to make significant contributions to our research, including the attraction of PhD students and external research funding under the umbrella of the System Analytics Research Institute (SARI).
