The Department of Computer Science at the University of Surrey invites applications for two posts of Senior Lecturer or Lecturer in Secure Systems. The post includes teaching and research.

The Department of Computer Science within the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences has an international reputation for research and teaching. Research in the department is focused on two main areas - Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering (NICE), and Secure Systems, with Surrey hosting one of the Academic Centres of Excellence recognised by GCHQ.

The Department has a large secure systems research group, led by Professor Steve Schneider, with expertise in security by design, authentication, verification, distributed ledger technologies, trusted systems and cloud security.

This post offers an exciting opportunity for an appointment in the Secure Systems group. Suitable areas of expertise that complement and extend strengths of the group include (but are not limited to): practical system security, trusted systems, verification, distributed systems, complex systems and networks, and the interface between security and machine learning.

Candidates to the post should have a PhD in a relevant subject or equivalent professional experience. An ability to secure research funding and produce high quality outputs and manage research projects and supervise research students is also required.  It is expected that the post-holder will also contribute to high quality teaching in cyber security and fundamental topics in computer science at undergraduate and post-graduate level and to supervise undergraduate projects and dissertations.

Interviews will be held on 5th and 6th November 2018.

This is a full-time and permanent position. We would expect the appointed candidate to start as soon as they are available.

The University and the Department specifically are committed to building a culturally diverse organisation and strongly encourages applications from female and minority candidates. The Department of Computer Science was awarded a Bronze Athena SWAN award, in recognition of our commitment to equality and diversity.
