We are looking for a computer scientist to lead research, teach, and help with the running of the Department. We’re particularly looking for someone with research interests in one or more of the core research areas of the Department: Artificial Intelligence, Human-Computer Interaction, Mathematical Foundations, and Visual Computing.

The Department of Computer Science at Bath includes internationally renowned experts, such as Dr Joanna Bryson who has been named as one of the top 10 AI influencers, and Dr Neill Campbell who is a Royal Society Industry Fellow in Visual Computing. We are a highly collaborative team, working together across research topics and disciplines in our Department and beyond. We have recently launched the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI which brings together science, engineering, humanities and social sciences. As well as supervising PhD students, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with our growing set of partners. These include Rolls-Royce, DeepMind, the FCA, ONS, and universities including São Paulo, Zhejiang and Tsinghua.

What you will do as a Lecturer

Research – You’ll work with colleagues, students and researchers to develop and publish papers. You’ll apply to bring in research funding. You’ll also find ways of opening your research to the public, for example, by delivering talks or holding demonstration days.

Teaching – You’ll have a few courses to run. This includes designing and delivering the content through lectures, tutorials, and labs. You’ll be educating and inspiring some of the brightest students in the country.

Helping with the running of the Department – You’ll have a few roles to help the Department run smoothly. You might help with student placements, contribute to admissions, or lead a research team.    

The support and growth opportunities we will give you 

  • Training for an HEA Fellowship – We will enrol you into the Bath Course, which will give you the skills and support you need for teaching. The course lasts three years, after which you will become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 
  • Mentoring – For the first three years, you’ll have a mentor. They will support you in your day-to-day job, and help you progress.
  • Opportunities to collaborate and build on our networks – As well as the partners mentioned above, we have strong networks across sectors such as entertainment, sport and healthcare.

The qualifications, experience and skills that you need for this role

You need to have:

  • a strong academic record
  • a PhD or be about to complete one

You might have experience:

  • publishing papers
  • tutoring
  • giving lectures 
  • leading a team or managing team members

You need to have shown the initiative and enthusiasm to:

  • be a research leader – you’re keen to lead research projects, and you may even have led some already
  • take your research further – you look for ways your research can have impact in the world. You might have done some public engagement or your research may have been taken up by another organisation
