The Department of Computing at Imperial College London invites applications for four full-time permanent faculty member positions at the Lecturer level (comparable to Assistant Professorships), who will contribute to research, teaching and service. Exceptional candidates may be appointed at Senior Lecturer level (comparable to Associate Professorships).
We value research in the foundational underpinnings and applied areas of our discipline, transdisciplinary research, and digital innovation. Therefore, we will consider outstanding candidates from any area of Computer Science.
The Department of Computing is among the largest Computing departments in the UK and is at the forefront of academic research and teaching. Its research has been ranked in the top three in the UK in the previous Research Excellence Framework undertaken by the Higher Education funding Council for England. The Complete University Guide ranks the Department’s teaching among the top five in Computer Science.
The Department co-leads the College’s I-X initiative, a new collaborative environment for research, education, and entrepreneurship across artificial intelligence, data science, and digital technologies. This makes it an exciting time to join our Department and co-shape the future of research and education in our field. Appointed candidates will be encouraged to contribute to I-X in their areas of expertise – benefiting from the new stimulating environment that I-X will provide on our South Kensington and White City campuses.
Our Department is defined by its people and values. We offer an attractive salary package (including a pension scheme with significant employer contributions) as well as generous terms and conditions of service. The posts are permanent (comparable to tenured faculty positions), subject to a three-year probationary requirement, and include a substantial start-up package for establishing a research group. Other benefits to our staff and students include subsidised childcare on campus, flexible and family-friendly working policies, opportunities for further professional development, periodic sabbaticals, and free healthcare through the National Health Service. We are particularly eager to support the dual-career needs of candidates.
