The Computing Department at Royal Holloway is seeking to appoint several academic staff to support its research and teaching.

We conduct outstanding research and provide excellent undergraduate and postgraduate education: we ranked 11e in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) for the quality of our research output, and in teaching we are generally in the top 10 in the UK for graduate prospects (eg Guardian 2022). Our software engineering education has been hailed as a “best practice” example of computer science education by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.

Over the past seven years, we have embarked on an ambitious expansion plan: eighteen new academic staff have been appointed, new integrated undergraduate and masters programs have been created and many new postgraduate programs were launched. We have strong research groups in the broad areas of intelligent systems, machine learning, algorithms and complexity, and programming languages ​​and systems, as well as a good relationship with the information security group . We are involved in multiple inter/multidisciplinary activities, from electrical engineering to psychology and social sciences. Our research strength generates significant interest and opportunities for collaboration from universities and third-tier partners. Royal Holloway has also recently launched a research catalyst “Transformative digital technologies, security and society”, to which we wish to contribute.

We are currently recruiting academic staff who can complement or enhance our existing research and further support our teaching. We particularly welcome applications from researchers with industrial experience and expertise in large-scale software and systems engineering. We also welcome outstanding candidates from all computer science disciplines.

The successful candidate will help us seek out and pursue opportunities for research funding and industrial engagement, and oversee student projects with an emphasis on industry best practices. They will hold a PhD or equivalent and have a proven research record with a strong background in the underlying theory. Experience in fundraising, working with industry or contributing to outreach activities would also be valuable.

The appointee will be expected to contribute to all departmental activities, including undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and overseeing general projects on a wide range of subjects. In particular, the duties and responsibilities of this position include: conducting individual or collaborative research projects; produce high-quality results for publication in high-level journals or conference proceedings; apply for research funding; to provide high quality education to all levels of students; supervision of postgraduate research students.

This is a full-time, permanent position (incumbent). The position is based in Egham, Surrey, within commuting distance of London, Europe’s fastest growing tech hub.
