The University of Malta is carrying out pioneering research and teaching in a number of areas at the intersection of Information Policy, Technology Law & Security Science. The Department of Information Policy & Governance is seeking to bolster the above with the appointment of an Assistant Lecturer/ Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor/Professor.
We are looking for candidates who share our vision of an international, outward-looking team with a strong commitment to retaining the Department’s leading position at the cutting-edge of teaching and research in our subjects of specialization. This vision requires an inter-disciplinary approach combined with a very strong work ethic capable of handling the pressures of adapting traditional standards of excellence to changing business models in the academic world. We expect candidates to play a significant role in developing the University’s ambitious research objectives especially through participation in Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programmes. The emphasis is on team-players capable of leaving the comfort-zone of their own disciplines, reaching out to and learning more about other disciplines while continuing the traditions in a department established more than thirty years ago. The candidates are most likely to have started off in one of the following disciplines: Technology Law, Information Policy & Governance, Intelligence, Police or other Security studies, Political Science, applied ICT Technologies. Helping to launch a new Master in Information Policy, Law & Security will also be one of the first roles of the new appointee.
The Department of Information Policy & Governance builds on a team established in 1988. It is at the centre of a vibrant international research community and co-hosts the LexConverge research network which has co-ordinated several million Euro worth of inter-disciplinary research projects, providing co-ordination services to over 100 researchers across 35 institutions in 29 countries. The founding Head of the Department was appointed the UN’s first Special Rapporteur for Privacy in July 2015. Since 2017, the Department is a core group partner in delivering Europe’s first Joint/Dual PhD in Security Science, Information Policy, Networking Technology & Law https://www.essentialresearch.eu/
