Are you a senior academic leader with the drive and expertise to change the face of computing education?
EEECS is one of the University’s largest and most dynamic schools. We offer a range of vibrant undergraduate and postgraduate programmes delivering excellent employability. Our team of passionate and committed academics undertake internationally competitive research, including working within the Global Research Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT). However, we want to do more to educate future leaders to help tackle real-world global challenges and address areas of major societal need. To make this vision a reality we have recently established a Software Academy and seek a leader with an excellent track record in research or education who shares an ambition to develop and grow the Software Academy to meet the needs of students, employers, government and the wider computing and technology sectors.
The successful candidate will be the inaugural Director of the Software Academy. This is a new senior leadership opportunity that will help drive our ambition to establish Queen’s as a global leader in employability and skills development in software engineering and computing education. The post holder will be appointed as a permanent Professor of Computer Science, with the Director of the Software Academy role being for 4 years in the first instance.
Our five core values (Respect, Integrity, Excellence, Ambition, Connected) have been developed by staff and students. They express our shared understanding of what we believe, how we aim to behave and what we aspire to be as an international organisation.
