The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) has provided a lead in Sino-British co-operation by successfully operating degree programmes jointly with Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT). These courses have been running successfully since 2004 and were the first to be approved as part of the “key university” quota by the Chinese Ministry of Education. The programmes are taught in English and based entirely in Beijing with currently around 2,700 students on them and are the first in China to be accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

We are currently looking to appoint a Lecturer in Digital Media who is able to deliver teaching and assessment at undergraduate and postgraduate level, with some guidance, in at least two of the following subject areas: Interaction Design; Database Systems; or Image and Video Processing.

This post will be on a teaching and scholarship contract where the majority of the successful candidate’s workload will be allocated to teaching (60%) and the remaining time will be split equally between administration and scholarship.  This post is not expected to undertake any research activity.

You will be based in London but will spend a significant amount of time in Beijing for teaching and assessment so must therefore be able to obtain a Chinese visa.

To apply, you should have a PhD or equivalent professional experience, and be able to communicate new and complex information effectively, both verbally and in writing, engaging the interest and enthusiasm of the target audience.  You should also have clear and ambitious plans for future scholarship activities.

This is a permanent, full time post and the starting salary will be in the range of £42,433-£52,833 per annum.  Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, pension scheme and an interest-free season ticket loan. 

At Queen Mary University of London, we are committed to the equality of opportunities and to advancing the careers of all staff.  We have policies to support staff returning from long-term absence and flexible arrangements for staff to who wish to change their work patterns. As part of our commitment to the Athena SWAN principles we strongly encourage applications from women.  We will also consider applications for job share, so please indicate this clearly on your application form.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme. The School will be able to provide a Certificate of Sponsorship if required by the successful candidate. 

Informal enquiries about the post should be addressed to Dr Michael Chai at . Details about the School can be found at
