You will be involved in all aspects of the CDT and will have the opportunity to work with colleagues in the Computer Science Department and across the university.

    This long-term appointment is important to the success of SAINTS. You will join a friendly team with big aspirations and high standards. You will have excellent communication and organisational skills, a keen eye for detail and process, and be able to demonstrate a high level of efficiency.
