Imagine working in an environment where your contribution is so far reaching that you will be changing the world - this is reality - if you choose.  

Pursue your research interests and inspire the next generation with a boundary-pushing University.

ECS is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year. 

Are you an expert in Computer Science including Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Computer Engineering, Theory and Software Engineering, Automation and Robotics, Human Systems Interaction and Digital Health?

Join us, and you’ll have the scope to create your own opportunities. For example, one of our colleagues came to us in 2017 with an industrial research background. Since then, she’s built a strong publishing record, mentored students as a senior tutor, advised industrial partners, and been awarded numerous grants. With our support, she’s directed her own progress and is also spearheading research initiatives in Healthcare Technology - working with hospital clinicians and electronics experts to shape the next generation of healthcare. She was promoted to a Professor in 2021. 

Ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide, we’re bold, progressive and keen to push the boundaries of what we’re teaching our students - and what we’re learning alongside them. We encourage and support our staff to pursue their research and develop enterprise activities and take advantage of other opportunities within their fields of interest. After all, when everyone brings and shares their own ideas and findings, it helps us to stay at the forefront of thinking in electronics and computer science. With the national Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Hub, major sector Centres for Machine Intelligence, Healthcare Technologies, Flexible Electronics and e-Textiles, and Internet of Things, as well as modern laboratory facilities for Biomedical Engineering research and Sustainable Electronic Technologies, our reputation for teaching, research and enterprise is quite exceptional.

To apply, you’ll need a PhD, or equivalent professional qualifications, with a strong publication record, and able to demonstrate delivery of teaching in a manner that meaningfully engages students. It is essential that you have a track-record of innovative research in Computer Science and have a desire to build a strong research team with the support of the School.
