Posted: 10th June 2019

Department of Computer Science, Parks Road, Oxford.
Departmental Lecturer in Computer Science (Graphics and Security)
Fixed term until 30/09/2021
Grade 8: Salary £40,792 – £48,677 p.a. (note: post may be under-filled at grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.)


The Department of Computer Science have an opportunity for a full-time Departmental Lecturer in Computer Science (Graphics and Security) to start as soon as possible.  This is a fixed-term position until 30 September 2021.

You will be a full member of the team responsible for teaching and supervision of undergraduate and graduate students within the Department of Computer Science, and your duties will include participating in the teaching and administrative work of the Department, supervising or assisting in the supervision of graduate students, lecturing, tutoring, or conducting practical classes, producing lecture notes/course materials and reading lists, being the first contact for student matters, and planning and organising specific syllabus areas and contributing to syllabus development generally.

The primary selection criteria are a doctoral degree in Computer Science, experience of delivering teaching in the area of Graphics, Geometric Modelling and Computer Security, an aptitude for teaching and awareness of pedagogic methods, and sufficient depth and breadth of knowledge in the subject to develop course units in a sufficient variety of Computer Science areas.

Whilst the role is a grade 8 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at grade 7 (£32,236 - £39,609 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly (for Grade 7, you would be expected to hold a doctoral degree in Computer Science or be close to completion). This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
