The Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering is currently recruiting for a Teaching Fellow/Senior Teaching Fellow in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, a joint appointment with the Department of Computer Science. The post is part of the University’s investment in its expanding multi-disciplinary robotics teaching and research and will have a major role in our new MSc Robotics & Autonomous Systems, see http://www.bath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate-2018/taught-postgraduate-courses/msc-robotics-and-autonomous-systems/.

Applicants should hold an undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline and, ideally, a PhD and a higher education teaching qualification or professional recognition; please see the job description and person specification for the specific duties and criteria for TF and STF levels. The Department has a strong record in both research and teaching and close collaborations with industry. 91% of its research activity was graded as either world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 and it is consistently very highly placed in the National Student Survey, for example 95.76% Overall Satisfaction in NSS 2017, ranked 4th in the UK.

In addition to a full CV, applicants must provide a separate teaching statement of up to 4 pages to cover their teaching background and experience, and explicitly state which modules in the new MSc they would be able to deliver.
