The School of Computing, Mathematics and Data Science is looking for a lecturer in High Performance and Quantum Computing.

The Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing at Coventry University is one of the largest in the UK and is nationally and internationally renowned as a centre of innovation for its teaching and learning in computing subject areas. The School of Computing, Mathematics and Data Science is a new School that has been created within the faculty to promote growth in these areas. This new School is created from the previous School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics and inherits a very successful suite of courses supported by excellent staff, teaching facilities and laboratories. The school is responsible for the development of a thriving portfolio of teaching, international partnerships and industrial collaboration. We offer undergraduate degrees in Business Information Technology, Computer Science, Computing, Ethical Hacking & Cybersecurity, Interactive Media & Web Technologies, Games Technology and Data Science. Our postgraduate courses include Data Science (Conversion), Data Science & Computational Intelligence, Computer Science, Management of Information Systems & Technology, and Cyber Security.

    It is expected that this position will be focussed on high performance and quantum computing, although an understanding of other aspects of computer science is essential. A key part of this role will be to support our teaching in the area of teaching parallel and GPU programming.

    You will be responsible for the delivery and support of learning, teaching and assessment at undergraduate and postgraduate level. You will work closely with the course teams to help provide the high-quality learning environment our students expect.

    Applicants should hold a post-graduate degree in Computer Science or related subject. Professional qualification and/or membership and a PhD. Experience of working in higher education will be very useful and good programming skills are required.

    You will need to share our passion for delivering a positive student experience that puts excellence in teaching and learning at the heart of everything you do and will be able to demonstrate significant knowledge of your area of specialisation.

    As one of Coventry's biggest employers we will provide an excellent benefits package and a personal and professional development programme that will help you to achieve your aspirations.

    The School of Computing, Mathematics and Data Science takes pride in, values, and celebrates the quality and diversity of our staff. We welcome applications from all members of the community.
