You will be joining the Department of Computer Science at an exciting time as we review our strategy around course delivery and define how we build on the lessons learnt in the last two years.

You will use your expertise to lead on selected projects taking place in the Department to innovate the use of digital tools and approaches to teaching and learning using technology.

You should possess highly effective interpersonal skills, team working skills combined with the ability to work independently. Experience of working in a higher education sector is highly desirable.

You will be based in the Wolfson Building but you may be able to agree a pattern of regular remote working with your line manager.
