The School of Computer Science and Mathematics within the Faculty of Engineering and Technology seeks to appoint a Senior Lecturer or Senior Teaching Fellow in the field of Cyber Security. Whilst this is a broad area, we would particularly welcome applicants who have research or teaching experience in Ethical Hacking, System Penetration, Secure Software Development and Cryptography. Applicants with professional experience and/or certification in Ethical Hacking would also be welcomed.
The role will require delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the School and the specific development of the area of Cyber Security to ensure our curriculum is up-to-date and meeting the needs of employers and applicants. The appointed person will also be expected to make broad contributions to the academic work of the School of Computer Science and Mathematics in the fields of computing and computer science. In addition, you may contribute to the development and delivery of outreach and engagement initiatives as well as interdisciplinary project areas. You are likely to have a background in Cyber Security and/or computer science with a PhD in a related subject and/or relevant professional experience from industry.
The university has created a new academic career pathway for staff in academic roles. The structure focuses on career pathways, these being:
The new pathways have been designed to ensure that academic strengths whether in research, scholarship, teaching, the wider student experience, leadership or innovation and engagement, are all appropriately recognised, developed, valued, and rewarded.
They reflect parity in progression and reward in recognition of these contributions and they enable individuals to focus on and be supported in their professional development and practice during their career.
You should apply against the job description that they feel best reflects their strengths and expertise. On appointment, assignment to the appropriate pathway and job description will be based on the successful candidate’s experience and academic strengths.
For further information please contact Prof Atif Waraich (School Director), A.I.Waraich@ljmu.ac.uk or Dr Bob Askwith (Subject Leader Cyber Security), R.J.Askwith@ljmu.ac.uk
