University of Lincoln - College of Science

Dynamic leadership, inspirational academics and significant financial investment have seen our reputation for research and learning go from strength to strength. We’re looking for exceptional people with a relentless focus on improvement. Join us in shaping the next stage of our exciting future.

Set in the heart of a beautiful, safe and friendly city, the University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious and international institution with high aspirations and a rapidly improving profile.

We are looking for an inspirational Head of the School of Computer Science. Your leadership skills and strategic vision will be complemented by your strong track record in delivering projects including recruitment of staff, building research capacity and external links and delivering a superb student experience through an innovative, accredited curriculum. You will have strong management skills and the ability to develop a talented and motivated team to ensure the School fulfils its potential. As a member of the College Management Team, you will have a collegiate approach and the ambition to succeed in a supportive atmosphere.

For a number of years the School of Computer Science has been the highest ranked in a new (post 1992) University. Recruiting a large intake of students across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, the School regularly performs well in league tables of student satisfaction and employability. It has an excellent reputation both in the quality of its published outputs and in generating external income to fund a range of innovative and impactful projects. The School’s research is largely driven and managed through four research centres that specialise in Computer Vision, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Human Computer Interaction and a new group in Machine Learning. Inter-disciplinary work is further facilitated through two cross-College Institutes: the Institute of Health, and the Institute for Agri-Food Technology. Each provides a network of contacts in relevant subject areas across Colleges and subject disciplines, and facilitates links to practitioners, service providers and industrialists.

As an Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder the School is committed to advancing gender equality in this STEM subject.
