About the Role

We are looking to appoint two Lecturers who are able to deliver teaching and assessment at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the following areas, but not exclusively: Advanced Network Programming, Data Design, Reasoning and agent, Java programming, Middleware, Database Systems and/or Introduction to Artificial Intelligence.

These posts will be on a teaching only contract, therefore research activity will not be part of the expected duties.

About You

You should have a PhD in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science with teaching experience at undergraduate or postgraduate level and the demonstrable ability to deliver teaching at both levels with some guidance. You should 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 clear and ambitious plans for future scholarship activities. The posts are based in London but you will spend a significant amount of time in Beijing for teaching and assessment so you must therefore be able to travel regularly to China.

About the School of EECS

The School is well-known for pioneering research and world-class projects. We have been operating double degree programmes jointly with Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) since 2004. We were the first to be approved as part of the “key university” quota by the Chinese Ministry of Education and are the first in China to be accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Our programmes are taught in English and based entirely in Beijing.
