Lecturer in Computer Science - Games & AI Specialism

York St John University - School of Art, Design & Computer Science

The Role

After investing over £110 million in our campus and facilities, establishing nine schools across multiple expertise and developing a suite of attractive, contemporary courses, we’ve seen the biggest rise across all English universities in UCAS acceptances this year.

Central to our ambition is an absolute commitment to academic excellence. Over a third of our research is already world leading or internationally excellent and we’re going further and faster to enhance this, with collaborative opportunities to do work that makes a real world impact and promotes social justice.

We’ve also created the conditions for quality teaching to thrive. We’re third in the UK for the proportion of our academics with formal teaching qualifications, we’re a consistent Stonewall Top 100 employer and we hold the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice. Our strength lies in our community: renowned for our friendly, supportive environment we will nurture your talent so that you can accomplish your ambitions.

As part of our expansion we are recruiting for a Lecturer in Computer Science with a specialism in games and artificial intelligence.

The School of Art, Design and Computer Science is in the midst of an exciting and transformative phase. We have a unique colocation of subject specialisms in the School and we are also experiencing an unprecedented period of growth in student numbers. This growth is due both to our reputation for excellent staff and student experience and to our range of top quality courses that combine live projects with practitioner expertise and academic challenge. As a result of this context of change and development we are recruiting a number of new academic colleagues across the school. We are looking for ambitious new colleagues who are interested in joining our academic team at a point where they can genuinely influence our development and travel with us as we grow, develop and diversify.

If you’d like to shape the story of a 175 year old institution with a fantastic future, we’d love to hear from you.

Please note that CVs will not be accepted in place of the application form.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our workforce and welcome applications from all backgrounds.
