The University of Bath wishes to appoint 2 Teaching Fellows in Computer Science.  We are looking for highly motivated computer scientists to contribute to teaching our strong cohort of undergraduate and postgraduate students and to develop new forms of delivery.

The post holders must have a continuing commitment to maintaining the University’s high standards in teaching and learning, with the ability to educate and inspire some of the brightest students in the country.  The holders of each post will teach a range of topics in Computer Science, notably but not exclusively topics in Human-Computer Interaction, programming and software engineering.  Duties will include giving lectures, running tutorials, setting and assessing coursework and examinations, and supervising and marking project work. Teaching will be conducted as part of a team across a range of relevant courses.  The successful candidate must be a good communicator and a very effective team member, with enthusiasm for the subject material, strong organisational skills and ability to work well with diverse staff and students.

Beyond the University, the post holders are expected to engage with and expand our set of collaborators, particularly in industry.  These appointments form part of a strategic drive to strengthen and integrate these collaborations and the post holders will be expected to extend our core teaching strengths and to develop effective courses through new degree apprenticeship programmes initially related to our existing programmes such as the MSc Computer Science

Across the University, there are also exciting opportunities for teaching collaborations.  For example, the Department of Computer Science collaborates with the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering on our new MSc Machine Learning & Autonomous Systems. We also work closely with the Bath Institute for Mathematical Innovation and the Department of Mathematical Sciences on our MSc Data Science.

Applicants will normally be expected to hold a PhD and to have an emerging or established reputation for excellent teaching. The successful applicants will also be expected to contribute to the administration, leadership and management of the Department’s activities commensurate with the level of the appointment.

Interviews will be held in April.

Both the Department and the University are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive working environment.  We are working to improve the gender balance within the Department and particularly welcome applications from women.

For informal discussion about the role, please contact the Head of Department, Professor Eamonn O'Neill. Telephone +44 (0)1225 383216, email E.ONeill@bath.ac.uk.
