Results from the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021) gave Northumbria University the biggest rise in research power ranking of any UK university. Our research power ranking rose to 23rd, having previously risen to 50th in 2014, and from 80th in 2008, making Northumbria the sector’s largest riser in research power ranking for the second time in a row. We now rank #12 in the UK in terms of research power for UoA11: Computer Science and Informatics, a rise of 54 places, and a testament to our significant research strength in depth across several areas. Situated in a dedicated state-of-the-art £7m building at the heart of our city-centre campus in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, we offer a vibrant research and teaching environment for students and staff.

The Department has research groups in AI and machine learning, networks and cyber security, HCI and social computing, data science, digital health and wellbeing, and digital learning. High quality applicants who can strengthen one or more of these areas are encouraged to apply; however, we welcome applications from any relevant area of computer science, and we particularly encourage applicants who are working at the intersection(s) of computer science and other disciplines. We are ambitious about the continued growth of our research, but also on delivering a high quality, industry-ready, experience for our students. Our undergraduate Information Systems students rated us the number one Department in that subject area in NSS2022.

You will contribute further enhance our research, enterprise, and teaching activities. This will include designing, developing, and delivering high quality teaching, undertaking individual and joint research to produce high quality academic outputs and inform teaching, and contributing to the generation of external research income.

Successful candidates must hold a first degree and be qualified to doctoral level in a relevant discipline, with specialist knowledge gained through research activity, professional practice or consultancy. A proven ability to deliver high quality research and teaching is essential, together with an appropriate publication profile and a track record of bidding for external income.
