The Role

This is a unique opportunity to join a prestigious and rapidly expanding centre for teaching and research into cyber security. You will be expected to bring your expertise in cyber security, network security or forensics to join the team and take part in lecturing and research.

It is essential that you have the enthusiasm and commitment required to contribute to the further development of the research within the school, and ideally within the areas of Cyber Security and Networking, building upon the success of The Cyber Academy.

You must be ambitious about making a wide contribution to the university. You will be required to work independently and as part of a team.
