You will secure research funding, publish in high impact journals, supervise research students and manage research projects. As a teacher, you will play a key role in maintaining our reputation for high-quality teaching by designing, delivering and assessing undergraduate and postgraduate-level courses in cybersecurity and other core topics in computer science.
