As part of this exciting opportunity, you will contribute to the School’s teaching activities to support the delivery and development of cyber security focused modules across our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

We are looking for candidates with a PhD or equivalent experience, ideally in computer or information science and preferably with a track record in the delivery of study modules at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level. Industrial experience is particularly welcome. You should be able to demonstrate a commitment to maintaining the University’s high standards in teaching and learning.

It pursues a blend of fundamental, applied and interdisciplinary research, with current focus areas in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and Human-Computer Interaction.

The University of Lincoln has an excellent reputation for teaching and learning, and you will contribute to this in the Computing subject area and alignment with the University’s strategic objectives. You will have opportunities to engage with research in the School through professional practice and scholarship activities and/or engagement with the School’s research centres and wider activities such as developing industry relationships and facilitating commercial enterprise.  

The University is committed to building a culturally diverse institution, where all staff and students can flourish and feel valued for their contribution and individuality. We welcome talented people, whatever their background, to work and study here. All appointments are made on merit.
