Pursue your research interests and inspire the next generation with a boundary-pushing University. 

Are you an expert in Computer Vision, Data Science, Natural Language Programming or Computer Human Interaction?

Whether you’re pursuing a new career path in higher education, returning to work after a career break or looking to develop existing lecturing skills, the University of Southampton is the place to do something truly unique with your expertise. 

Join us, and you’ll have the scope to create your own opportunities. For example, one of our colleagues came to us in 2017 with an industrial research background. Since then she’s built a strong publishing record, mentored students as a senior tutor and been awarded a research council grant. With our support, she’s driven her own progress and is also leading a new centre for healthcare technology research - working with hospital clinicians and electronics experts to shape the next generation of healthcare. 

Ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide, we’re bold, progressive and keen to push the boundaries of what we’re teaching our students - and what we’re learning alongside them. So we actively encourage and support our lecturers to pursue their research and other activity within their fields of interest. After all, when everyone brings and shares their own ideas and findings, it helps us to stay at the forefront of thinking in electronics and computer science. With sector-leading Centres for Machine Intelligence, Healthcare Technologies and Internet of Things, and the Academic Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security Research, our reputation for teaching, research and enterprise is quite exceptional

To apply, you’ll need a PhD, or equivalent professional qualifications, with extensive research experience and a collaborative approach to working across research areas and disciplines. It’s not essential that you have teaching experience, but you must have the confidence and presence to inspire students – through both group lecturing and one-to-one mentoring. Whatever you bring to the team, we’ll support you to develop your presentation skills and keep making progress in our forward-thinking department. 

Athena SWAN silver award recognised, we’re committed to improving equality for women in science and engineering, so we’ll help you find a good work/life balance with flexible or even part-time working hours.
