The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) is an exciting and dynamic environment with a reputation for excellence in both research and teaching. As a multidisciplinary School, our researchers work with the arts and sciences collaborating with psychologists, biologists, musicians and actors, mathematicians, medical researchers, dentists and lawyers. We are well known for our pioneering research and pride ourselves on our world-class projects. We are 11th in the UK for quality of computer science research (REF 2014) and 6th in the UK for quality of electronic engineering research (REF 2014). Our academics undertake world-leading research in a lively and supportive research community. The results are original, informative, often surprising or questioning, and always significant, achieving impact on wider society and within specialist areas of knowledge.

We are currently looking to appoint two Lecturers or Senior Lecturers in Data Analytics who have experience in teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level in large or small group settings in at least two of the following areas: Data Analytics; Big Data Science; Cloud Computing; Artificial Intelligence; or Machine Learning.  The post holders will also be responsible for managing one of our MSc taught programmes and for delivering the work based modules on our degree apprenticeship programme.

These posts 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. The posts are not expected to undertake research activity.

To apply, you should have a PhD in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, 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 evidence of high quality general or subject-specific pedagogical work published in appropriate renowned media and have clear and ambitions plans for future scholarship activities.

A successful applicant at Lecturer level will have some experience of teaching and, with some guidance, will be able to deliver teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

At Senior Lecturer level, successful applicants will have substantial teaching experience and will be able to deliver teaching and assessment at both levels.  You will also have a record of mentoring and developing staff.

These posts are full time and permanent, and successful candidates must be able to start no later than 2 January 2020 due to teaching constraints.  For an appointment at Lecturer level, the starting salary will be in the range of £41,682-£51,899; for Senior Lecturer it will be in the range of £54,853-£61,311.  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 who are underrepresented in our area.  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. QMUL will provide a Certificate of Sponsorship if required by a successful candidate.
