This is an outstanding opportunity to join the Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield, a world top 100 University. Two Lectureship positions are available (which are equivalent in status to Assistant Professor). The Department of Computer Science is currently implementing an ambitious plan for growth, which will see us double in size and extend the depth and breadth of our research portfolio. We are among the best Departments in the UK for computer science research; in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, we were ranked 5th overall in the UK and 92% of our research work was rated either world-leading or internationally excellent.

We are seeking to appoint two Lecturers with expertise in one or more of the following areas, which align with the Department’s research groups and its affiliated centres/institutes:

- Algorithms - Complex systems modelling - Machine learning - Natural language processing - Speech and hearing technology - Ubiquitous/pervasive computing - Visual computing (including computer graphics and computer vision) - Verification - Testing - Cybersecurity - Robotics

You will hold a PhD in a relevant area of computer science, or have equivalent experience. As a Lecturer, you will conduct research to the highest standards. This will include securing research funding, publishing in high impact conferences and journals, supervision of research students and research project management.

In addition, you will play a key role in maintaining our reputation for high-quality teaching by designing, delivering and assessing undergraduate and postgraduate level courses in computer science. The Department has an enviable reputation for innovative teaching. In the National Student Survey (NSS) 2019 we were top for overall satisfaction among Russell Group computer science departments.

We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK.
