We are seeking to appoint a number of new lecturers to join an expanding and 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, computing education, digital health and software engineering, often spanning discipline boundaries.

You will have a PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in cyber security or human-computer interaction, but we welcome applicants with expertise in any area of Computer Science.

Your teaching duties may include contributions to 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.

This is a particularly exciting time to join Computer Science at Aston. As we grow, we are establishing new degree programmes in the areas of cybersecurity and AI, we are expanding our collaborative research activities, especially with businesses, and we are a leading member of the new national Institute of Coding.

The minimum period for which initial appointments are made is normally five years. However, the normal expectation is that Lecturers will transfer to a continuing appointment during this period on demonstrating acceptable performance in their research, teaching and other duties
