The University of Bath wishes to appoint two highly motivated computer scientists as Lecturers (teaching role) to contribute to teaching our excellent students and to develop new forms of delivery.

You 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 and to design, develop and deliver high quality teaching, supervision and assessment at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

You will contribute to leading new teaching initiatives and will teach a range of topics in computer science, for example in programming, software engineering, and cybersecurity. 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 holder is expected to engage with and expand our set of collaborators, particularly in industry. This appointment forms part of a strategic drive to strengthen and integrate these collaborations. The post holder will be expected to extend our core teaching strengths and to develop effective courses through helping lead the proposal, development and delivery of new online programmes.

Applicants will normally be expected to have a PhD, a reputation for excellent teaching, and experience in developing collaborative degree-level courses with industry. This will be underpinned and informed by significant expertise and experience achieved through providing teaching and learning, study and scholarship or professional practice. The successful applicant will also be expected to contribute to the administration, leadership and management of the Department’s activities commensurate with the level of the appointment.

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 females.

For informal discussion about the role, please contact Professor Mike Fraser, Head of Department (mcf35@bath.ac.uk).

We value, promote and celebrate inclusion, challenging discrimination and putting equality, diversity and belonging at the heart of everything we do. We aim to be an inclusive university, where difference is celebrated, respected and encouraged. We truly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds will lead to a better environment for our employees and students, so we encourage applications from all genders, backgrounds, and communities, particularly from under-represented groups such as Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled people, and value the positive impact that will have on our teams.

We have made a positive commitment towards gender equality and intersectionality receiving a Bronze Athena SWAN award, and we are actively working towards a Silver award. We are a family-friendly University, with an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements. We’re also proud to be a disability confident employer and are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments you may require.
