Following the award of a HEFCE-funded Catalyst grant to work with industry partners to develop teaching and learning materials to support industrial digitalisation we seek to appoint a Senior Lecturer with established expertise and strong interests in fields relevant to the broad area of Industrial Digitalisation.
The project builds on The University of Lincoln’s strong industrial partnership network to create modules and curricula that equip students and workforce to meet the digitalisation challenges of the future.
You will be the academic lead on this the project, liaising with industry partners, academics and professional services staff to develop and deliver modules and curricula for technology specialists and non-specialists that meet future industrial digitalisation needs. The project is intended to reach across disciplines and you will be expected to develop and deliver teaching materials of interest to a wide range of learners, some of whom will be work-based.
Although initially reporting to the project lead, you will be embedded in the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln, and the post intended to continue indefinitely beyond the 1-year duration of the project funding.
You will be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the possibilities for digitalisation to improve productivity across a range of industries, and ideally you will have experience of working with industrial partners to on aspects of digitalisation, either as a research project or in a business improvement capacity.
Depending on your experience and ambitions, the post is available on the Teaching and Research academic pathway, requiring a significant contribution to the research outputs of the School of Computer Science, or on the Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice pathway, requiring ongoing outreach to- and involvement in industry. On either pathway the post-holder will be expected to take an active part in the activities of the School of Computer Science, to contribute to its teaching activity at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to demonstrate a commitment to maintaining the University’s high standards in teaching and learning.
The School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln has scored highly in the recent independent performance measures of UK's university computing departments: in the top 20% for overall student satisfaction, 100% of Games Computing students were satisfied overall with their course (both NSS 2017), and 90% of graduates are employed in professional or managerial roles within 6 months of graduating employability (DLHE 2016).
The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious and exciting institution, and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic research, and is located since April 2017 in its brand new, purpose built co-located facilities on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront campus.
If you would like to know more about this opportunity, please contact the Project Lead Prof. Libby John, Head of College of Science and Engineering (email@example.com) or the Head of School of Computer Science Prof. Luc Bidaut (firstname.lastname@example.org).
