Open position: UCL Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (aka Assistant/Associate Professor) in Software Engineering. Ref: 1720442

The Department of Computer Science at University College London (UCL) invites applications for a faculty position at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level (Assistant/Associate Professor) in the area in Software Engineering.

We are seeking an outstanding researcher with a strong research track record, relevant postdoctoral experience and a compelling research vision.  We encourage applicants across all areas of software engineering to apply. We are particularly interested in candidates working in areas that will complement our existing expertise and lead to fruitful collaborations with other members of the software engineering group and other groups at UCL.

The UCL Software Systems Engineering group is one of the best in the world and is located in a similarly outstanding department of Computer Science at UCL. Further information about the group, its staff, research and teaching can be found at
Key Requirements

Candidates must hold an earned Ph.D. in Computer Science or a closely related field by the time they begin their appointment. They will be evaluated chiefly on the significance and novelty of their research to date, and their promise for leading a group in a fruitful program of research. They must also demonstrate a zest for innovative and challenging teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

A proven record of ability to manage time and evidence of ability to teach and to supervise academic work by undergraduates, masters, and doctoral students are desirable. Our department is a highly collaborative environment, and we seek future colleagues who enjoy working collaboratively. Candidates should further be committed to public communication, and to UCL's policy of equal opportunity, including working harmoniously with colleagues and students of all cultures and backgrounds.

Candidates wishing to be considered for the role of Lecturer (Grade 8) or Senior Lecturer (Grade 9) will need to fulfil the grade specific criteria specified in full detail within the Person Specification (see 'Further Details').
