Applications are invited for an appointment as Lecturer (Below the Bar) in Computer Science at the National University of Ireland Galway. 

The University wishes to recruit an outstanding individual to a full-time permanent Lecturer (Below the Bar) position in the Discipline of Information Technology, within the College of Engineering and Informatics. The successful candidate will actively contribute to the University’s strategic vision for ICT, and will participate in research, teaching, student project supervision, and programme administration across a complimentary portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate ICT programmes.

Research contribution is of fundamental importance in the role. It is anticipated that the new appointee will develop an outstanding research programme in a relevant area of Computer Science, attracting R&D funding in fundamental and applied research areas, and applying for major funding awards such as the SFI Investigators Programme and the European Research Council (ERC) Grant programmes. The appointee will also be required to develop national and international collaborations with academia and industry. The new appointee will be expected to disseminate their work through peer-reviewed journals and high-impact conferences.

While applications are invited from any branch of Computer Science, we are particularly interested in candidates whose teaching and research specialisms complement those of the Discipline of Information Technology, in domains including but not limited to: artificial intelligence; machine learning; cloud computing; complex information visualisation; data analytics; computer forensics and cybersecurity; trust and privacy; complex and adaptive systems; embedded systems; digital media and games; and software engineering & quality.

The successful candidate will be required to contribute strongly to teaching fundamental and applied computer science on our portfolio of undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes, as well as participating in programme administration, programme promotion, and outreach activities. The appointed candidate will be expected to develop new curricula, prepare course materials, deliver course work, supervise undergraduate and postgraduate students in their project work, and conduct related administrative duties.
