An excellent opportunity has arisen to appoint a full-time Departmental Lecturer in Security (Software Engineering Programme) until 30 September 2020.  This would be an ideal opportunity to gain teaching experience in an academic role, and to undertake world-class research in an area of significance.

You should hold a relevant doctoral degree, with teaching and research experience, with sufficient depth and breadth of knowledge in Security to develop course units.  A strong publication record and knowledge of existing research in Security, and aptitude for, or experience of, teaching are also required.

This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.

The post, which is a full-time appointment is department-funded, is available until 30 September 2020, and has a salary on the University grade 08S scale (currently £38,896 - £46,414 p.a.)
