Lecturer HCI – Research

Swansea University - College of Science

Salary: £32,958 to £38,183 per annum together with USS benefits.

The normal expectation is that the successful applicant will be appointed to the minimum of the agreed scale with annual increments on 1 October each year (subject to completing six months service).

The Athena SWAN Charter recognises work undertaken by institutions to advance gender equality. The College of Science is an Athena SWAN bronze award holder and is committed to addressing unequal gender representation across academia and professional and support functions.

To deliver its top 20 ambition Swansea University is seeking to appoint up to two Lecturers in Human-Computer Interaction with excellence in research in the Department of Computer Science within the College of Science.

The Department would welcome applications from early career academics with a developing portfolio of research interests that have the potential to play a significant role in the future development of the discipline.  Exceptional applicants with a more developed academic portfolio may be appointed to a higher grade.

Each post also includes teaching and supervision in Computer Science both at undergraduate and postgraduate level in addition to sharing organisational and academic management responsibilities. Furthermore, each post requires high standards in teaching and student learning, and a commitment to enhancing the overall student experience.

The successful candidates will strengthen the existing HCI group (www.fitlab.eu). Candidates should demonstrate how they might contribute to the research and teaching agendas of that group. We currently have strengths in physical interfaces/ interactions; mobile and ubiquitous computing; health and well-being; and, resource constrained communities, but welcome applications in any area of HCI. The successful candidates will benefit from state-of-the-art research labs, in particular UX and Maker Labs, as part of the Computational Foundry (see below).

 For informal enquiries please contact: Professor Arnold Beckmann, Head of Department: A.Beckmann@swansea.ac.uk or Professor Matt Jones, Head of College: matt.jones@swansea.ac.uk
