Two Lecturer Positions in the Information Security Group

My department – the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London – has two open positions. One 4 year teaching focused post and one permanent post with the usual research and teaching profile (similar to, say, a Junior Professor in Germany). It’s a nice place to work, there’s good research going on from cryptography and system security to human and social aspects of information security and the ISG hosts one of the two UK Centres for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security which means we have funding for 10 PhD students per year at the moment. Most teaching is at the MSc level.

Salary: 41,458 to 49,059 per annum – including London Allowance
