We are seeking to appoint two Senior Lecturers/ Lecturers in Computer Science, with particular preference for individuals with a research focus in Cyber Security or in AI associated with Autonomous Vehicles.

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.
