The School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln invites applications for three positions at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader grade in HCI/Games Computing. These appointments are parts of a strategic plan to strengthen research and delivery in interaction design, user studies and interactive technologies and to strengthen our well established team of Games academics. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to contribute to shaping an enthusiastic and stimulating research environment which values inclusion, diversity, and interdisciplinary.

The appointments will be situated in the Interactive Technologies Lab (intLab) research group which shares a democratic vision of design, development and evaluation of interactive technologies, grounded in the participatory engagement of diverse stakeholders (students, citizens, associations, public authorities and researchers) and aimed at satisfying social and societal needs. We understand design as a way to act on the world, involving people in the joint effort of crafting technological artefacts for the common good, and evaluation as a way to explore meanings and values. We are especially interested in hearing from people who share this vision and are keen on experimenting new ways to apply it in practice.

We are looking for candidates at various levels of their career who are strongly committed to excellence in research and teaching. Excellence in research will be demonstrated through publications in leading journals, presentations at competitive conferences, and endorsements by referees. Excellence in teaching will be demonstrated through teaching accomplishments and students’ evaluation records.

Applicants for the HCI positions must have a PhD in a relevant area by date of appointment or shortly thereafter. We encourage candidates from all HCI research perspectives to apply. The successful candidates will join the delivery team for our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Applicants for the Games Computing positions should have a PhD or equivalent experience in the game industry. The successful candidates will join the delivery team for our increasingly popular undergraduate Games Computing programme. Experience of delivery of Games related modules (such as programming, graphics, AI, or game design) would be an advantage, as would experience of commercial games development.

The School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln has scored highly in the recent independent performance measures of UK university computing departments; in the top 20% for overall student satisfaction (NSS 2016), the top 50 for research excellence in its publications (RAE 2014) and approximately 10% above the sector average for graduate employability (DLHE 2014). In the most recently published subject league tables (Sunday Times 2015; Complete University Guide 2016) the School is the highest ranked ‘new’ (post 1992) computer science department in the country.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic research, and is located on the picturesque waterfront campus in the vibrant city of Lincoln. In 2017 the School will move into new, purpose built facilities.

If you would like to know more about this opportunity, please contact Professor Antonella De Angeli (adeangeli@lincoln.ac.uk or Acting Head of School Dr Kevin Jacques (kjacques@lincoln.ac.uk)

As a member of the Athena SWAN Charter we are committed to advancing gender equality in STEM, therefore female applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
