Jobs at Goldsmiths
Lecturer in Computer Science
Goldsmiths, University of London is a world-leading centre of educational excellence where ground-breaking research meets innovative teaching and thinking. We're looking for inspiring and talented people to help build on our global reputation while also growing personally in a true learning organisation.
The Department of Computing is a vibrant, innovative and intellectually stimulating environment in which to work and study. We have, over the last two decades, developed a unique view of computing as a creative practice-based discipline: we still pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of computer science research to the limits of other disciplines. We also take pride on our mission of teaching our students to be innovative and practical professionals, able to think for themselves and to bring creative solutions to industry and to society.
This is true both for our on-campus students and our distance learning candidates around the world. We have, for over twenty years, been producing the distance learning computing programmes for the University of London (the world’s oldest distance learning provider).
Our research is radically multi-disciplinary and varied with a span that reaches from a strong emphasis on interactivity, virtual reality, and creative uses of computers to data analytics in medical and commercial applications to quantum informatics.
We have been extremely successful in recent years, attracting exciting new staff, winning important research grants, and greatly expanding in size, impact, and mission. Working at Goldsmiths, you will help us to move to the next stage in which we aim to reinforce our internationally significant position in interactivity, creative computing and games, while building up strength in data science and theoretical computer science. The successful candidates will be crucial to these developments.
Now is an exciting time to be joining this department. We are at the beginning of several major initiatives that will help us widen and deepen the influence of both our research and our teaching.
