The Department of Computer Science at Royal Holloway is looking to appoint six new academics to support our expansion in research and teaching.

We carry out outstanding research and deliver 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 in teaching we are 7th in the UK for graduate prospects (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), 13th in the UK for course satisfaction (Guardian University Guide 2020) and achieved 90% overall satisfaction from our students (NSS 2019).

Over the past six years, we have undertaken an ambitious plan of expansion: fourteen new academic members of staff were appointed, new undergraduate and integrated-masters programmes were created, and six new postgraduate-taught programmes were launched. We are involved in multiple inter/multidisciplinary activities, from electrical engineering to psychology and social sciences. Our research strength in machine learning, information security, and other areas also generates significant interest and collaborative opportunity from universities and third stream partners.

We are now recruiting academic members of staff who can complement or strengthen our existing research, which falls broadly within Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Algorithms and Complexity, Distributed and Global Computing, and Software Language Engineering; we also have strong connections with the Information Security Group. 

We particularly welcome applications from researchers in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Systems and the Internet of Things, Distributed Systems and Security, and Networking, but we welcome exceptional candidates from all disciplines.

The successful candidates 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 appointees 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 these posts 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. 

These are full-time and permanent (tenured) posts, available from August 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. 

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 

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
