Job description
The School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (CSEE)

The School is a large and dynamic department in the Faculty of Science and Health. The School is internationally known for its research in a range of areas and offers an excellent education to its students. We have enjoyed a period of rapid growth, and now have over 1100 students studying with us at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

We are now seeking two staff members to join our dedicated technical team, to fill the post of Technical Demonstrator.

Duties of the Role

As Technical Demonstrator, you will provide day-to-day dedicated technical teaching support for students within the School, working alongside our academic staff and will support lab and class teaching sessions including demonstrating methods and techniques to students in programming, report writing and or hardware/electronics (depending on area of expertise).

In addition you will set up practical experiments for teaching sessions, support practical classes, and assist with final year student projects. You will also have a role with the general running of the School’s teaching laboratories and in maintaining/servicing teaching tools.

A full list of duties can be found within the job pack attached.

Skills and qualifications required

Applicants must have a first degree in a relevant subject area (e.g. computer science or electronic engineering), or equivalent academic/professional experience relevant to the post and should have the ability to program in a variety of languages including either Python or C. In particular you will need to have detailed knowledge of technical areas related to the post, and be able to provide evidence that you can demonstrate complex specialist tasks and procedures to students with a range of competencies and backgrounds.

You should have excellent written and oral communication skills and have empathy and understanding towards students with mixed abilities. Experience of supporting learners in a higher education or adult learning environment would be highly beneficial but is not essential.

For the full list of skills and experience required please refer to the person specification.

At the University of Essex, internationalism and diversity is central to who we are and what we do. We are committed to being a cosmopolitan, internationally oriented university that is welcoming to staff and students from all countries, faiths and backgrounds, where you can find the world in one place.

To support this commitment we have our Global Forum, a staff-led network that promotes and celebrates the rich cultural diversity among Essex staff, and our Colchester campus based Faith Centre, which hosts regular services, meetings and events organised by our chaplains and faith representatives.

Please see the attached job pack, which contains a full job description and person specification which outlines the full duties, skills, qualifications and experience needed for this role plus more information relating to the post.
