The School of Computing and Communications is looking for exceptional academic staff with a passion for working at the forefront of multi-disciplinary Cyber Security with a systems-centric focus.

We are looking to fill two appointments at the Lecturer (Assistant Professor) level as part of the University’s extensive and ongoing investment in Cyber Security.

These appointments will have the unique opportunity to contribute to the growth and future direction of Security Lancaster, the University’s cross-disciplinary research institute in Cyber Security; that also hosts one of the 14 Academic Centers of Excellence in Cyber Security Research recognised by the UK Government. The institute is one of few multi-disciplinary centers worldwide to tackle human as well as technological challenges for a comprehensive coverage of socio-technical security.

For both positions, we especially encourage applications covering the focus area of Systems Security (including the broader technical remit of Security Lancaster) over the research themes of design, analysis and assessment of security.

We invite applicants with a strong academic track record demonstrating an international level of professional excellence, for research and impact, commensurate to the stage of their career. The ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate a passion for leadership in research, education, and professional engagements. We expect the candidates to be committed educators able to inspire students and contribute to the development of our portfolio of Cyber Security courses, including our international partnerships.

The Lectureships are full-time indefinite appointments. You should have a PhD in a relevant discipline, an excellent publication record; demonstrate high quality teaching; and, show excellence in engagement activities. Evidence of the ability to attract external grant income to support your research is essential.

The School strongly believes in creating an open and collaborative environment that is both highly inclusive and stimulating for career development. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis. Learn more about equality, diversity and inclusivity at Lancaster.
