Our department

The Department of Computer and Information Sciences has a long and distinguished record of high-quality research, particularly into practically relevant problems that arise in real-world applications and settings.  We are seeking excellent candidates to join our internationally recognised research groups in

  • AI, Data Science and Information Sciences
  • Cybersecurity
  • Digital Health
  • Trusted Programming

Each of these makes substantial contributions across the Department in undergraduate courses, postgraduate courses, teaching, research and knowledge exchange. The Department is flourishing; in the 2019 National Student Survey (NSS), we scored 5th in the UK, our PGT cohort has increased from 30 to over 150 in the last 5 years, and our staff numbers are increasing. We have put in place a number of innovative mechanisms to ensure as much time is given to academics to pursue their research and this is reflected in a growing portfolio of grants. Finally, by tapping into the Strathclyde knowledge exchange ecosystem, we are working at an ever greater scale and producing ever greater impact.

The opportunity

We would love to hear from you if you have an internationally recognised research portfolio in this area, are publishing in leading international journals, are actively pursuing funding whilst building impactful collaborative links with industrial and business partners and if you have a passion for leading on teaching and learning.  In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education. 

You’ll be rewarded with:

  • A generous remuneration package, with notable additional financial and non-financial benefits including pension and (where appropriate) a contribution towards relocation costs;
  • Excellent start-up support; and
  • Regular career review, with the opportunity to receive additional remuneration in recognition of outstanding contribution.
