Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer in the Department of Information Security, valid for a period of three years. This teaching-focussed post is primarily intended to support the development of distance learning material for the MSc in Cyber Security, being developed jointly with the University of London Worldwide, which will take its first students in September 2022. We are particularly looking for someone with the appropriate skills and expertise to develop online lab-based teaching material which will form part of a number of the individual courses in this new MSc.

The successful candidate will have:

  • a broad understanding of cyber security;
  • expertise in one or more technical areas of the subject, commensurate with the need to develop the relevant teaching material;
  • experience in effective teaching and development of teaching material, preferably including teaching online;
  • high quality communications skills.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement;
  • Training and Development opportunities;
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution;
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing;
  • Free parking.

The ISG was founded in 1990 and carries out research and teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, with particularly high numbers of master’s students – we are one of the very few academic departments worldwide devoted solely to Information and Cyber Security, enabling our staff to focus their teaching in this area. Our MSc in Information Security is one of the oldest programmes in the world, having started in 1992 and has a large alumni network with over 4,000 graduates. We have hosted, and continue to host, a series of Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) in cyber security, which has enabling us to recruit 10 fully funded and first-rate PhD students every year, contributing to a large and vibrant PhD community. We are involved in a range of inter/multidisciplinary research activities, spanning technology to psychology and social sciences. Our research strengths have continued to generate significant collaborative opportunities from industry and other leading universities. We are recognised by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research, and have recently received a gold award as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Education.

The post is based in Egham, where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
