Contract Duration :

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic Teaching focused lecturer to join the School of Computer Science, to undertake and support undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the School. The focus of the post will be on computer systems architecture/computer engineering but will also involve teaching other core aspects of the Computer Science curriculum. The School has a long history of providing a broad curriculum offering course units in the areas of computer architecture and engineering.


The role will entail developing curricula, designing and delivering teaching sessions in formats such as workshops, clinics, tutorials and traditional lectures, designing and supervising lab sessions, designing assessments, and other general teaching and teaching-related administration tasks.


Although the role will involve general computer science teaching, it is specifically intended to support our teaching in computer systems architecture/computer engineering at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Topics in these areas are present at all levels in the curriculum. First year undergraduate students study Fundamentals of Computer Engineering and Fundamentals of Computer Architecture as core topics. In the second year Processor Microarchitecture, Microcontrollers and System Architecture are elective courses, and there are related courses such as Microprocessors and Mobile Systems. In the third year we offer Implementing System-on-Chip Designs, Chip Multiprocessors, and the related course unit The Internet of Things. At Masters level, in this area students may take Designing for Parallelism and Future Multi-core and Computing, Mobile and Energy Efficient Systems.


Our goal is to provide a solid foundation in principles, informed by and demonstrated in practical applications, through to providing an insight into cutting edge concepts and applications.


You will have excellent pedagogic, communication and organisational skills and the ability to work effectively with undergraduate and postgraduate students, and academic staff colleagues. You will be a self-motivated person that can use their initiative to work flexibly, on their own or as part of a team.


You will have a strong background in computer science as a whole, and in particular experience through research and/or industrial experience in computer systems architecture/computer engineering. This can include the areas identified above, but we constantly review our curriculum, and would be interested in experience from applicants in any area of computer systems architecture or computer engineering. You will be enthusiastic about the need for teaching real-world skills to students within the constraints of a lab environment.


You will be expected to keep abreast of educational research, pedagogy within HE and the developments and evaluations of innovative teaching methods in an HE context, and will be expected to use this knowledge to participate in and lead activities within the school delivering, evaluating and disseminating best practice in teaching and learning.


Teaching Focussed academic roles within the School of Computer Science have parity of esteem with their research-focussed counterpart and have equivalent career development and promotion prospects.
