The University’s £3.6m Cyber & Digital Innovation Centre (C11) in Berkeley Green, offers a specialist secure environment for businesses and sector-leading testing and research. The University's also a key partner in the Golden Valley Development - home to Cyber Central UK.
Establishing one of the first post-Brexit university partnerships in Europe, the University has recently partnered with a private University in Germany, the Fachhochschule des Mittlestandes/University of Applied Sciences (FHM), setting up a £4m Cyber and Digital Innovation Centre in Duren. We're looking to recruit a Professor of Cyber Security to lead the development and delivery of the Centre on behalf of the University, contributing to the set up and delivery of University franchised teaching programmes, and support the School’s large portfolio of activities in this area.We are looking for an enthusiastic cyber security expert with a strong track record of research and knowledge exchange outputs in one or more areas allied to cyber security, including secure networks, malware analysis, applications of artificial intelligence in cyber security, advanced persistent threats and blockchain technology. This is important to lead the developments of the University’s campus in Cheltenham as well as at the Duren Centre and, more generally, to drive growth in student numbers, to attract the right staff in the future, and also to work effectively at the interface with internal and external stakeholders, especially with FHM in Germany. This requires regular travelling to Duren and an eligibility to work in Germany. The University will assist with the visa application process. Although the medium of instruction in the Duren Centre will be English, the ability to speak German would be a significant advantage.
Given the central significance in relation to student employability, business development, and how we shape our curricula in all courses in the School, this post will be central to all of these areas of School business.
Beyond the rationale from a subject perspective, the other main rationale is to bolster the senior team in the School. There will be an expectation of significant contribution to the School leadership, working closely with the Head of School to ensure the School is at the leading edge of cyber security developments, and also to ensure the extensive specialist facilities are developed in line with contemporary curricula. It is a normal expectation that the post holder will undertake line management, and also be able to step into all areas of School business as required. We expect the School to have several outputs in this area in the next REF submission, and we expect this post holder to make a significant contribution to this submission through their research and impacts.
You'll be required to provide contact information for three referees, of at least equal seniority to the post applied for and with corresponding title. At least two referees must be external to the University of Gloucestershire. Candidates must submit a completed application form and a Curriculum Vitea (of no more than five pages) plus a statement of not more than 2,000 words indicating clearly how they meet the requirements of the post through their outputs, impacts and outcomes. This 2,000 word statement will be used by the interview panel and shared with the referees, as a basis for the determination of the title commensurate with the grade and pathway.
