Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer in Computer Science in the Department of Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science at Royal Holloway carries out outstanding research and delivers excellent teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level: we ranked 11th in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) for the quality of our research output, and our average rating for Teaching Excellence Framework criteria in the 2017 National Student Survey placed us 4th among research-intensive UK universities.

Over the past five years, we have undertaken an ambitious plan of expansion: eleven new academic members of staff were appointed, new undergraduate and integrated-masters programmes were created, and five new postgraduate-taught programmes were launched. We are involved in multiple inter/multidisciplinary activities, from electrical engineering to psychology and social sciences.  The critical mass achieved by our research centres in information security and machine learning is also generating many approaches from potential users and collaborators.

We are now recruiting for an academic member of staff who can strengthen our research, which falls broadly within Artificial Intelligence, Algorithms and Complexity, Distributed and Global Computing, and Software Language Engineering; we also have strong connections with the Information Security Group. The successful candidate will help us seek and seize opportunities for research funding and industrial engagement. They will hold a PhD or equivalent, and will have a proven research record in any of those areas, with a solid background in the underlying theory. Experience in attracting funding, engaging with industry, or contributing to outreach activities would also be valuable.

The appointee will be expected to contribute across the full range of departmental activities, including undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and the supervision of mainstream projects over a wide range of topics. In particular, duties and responsibilities of this post include: conducting individual or collaborative research projects; producing high-quality outputs for publication in high-profile journals or conference proceedings; delivering high-quality teaching to all levels of students; supervising research postgraduate students. 

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing
  • Free parking 
  • Competitive Maternity, Adoption and Shared Parental Leave provisions

This is a full-time and permanent (tenured) post, available from April 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The post is based in Egham, Surrey, within commuting distance from London, Europe’s most dynamic technology hub.
