The Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is an internationally recognised department specialising in digital health, software engineering, artificial intelligence, information science, cyber security and mathematically structured programming. CIS is home to around 800 undergraduates, taught postgraduates and PhD students with an increasing emphasis on in-person and online delivery of high-quality educational programmes.

The Department has developed a 4-year Graduate Apprenticeship degree in IT: Software Development (ITSD) which is designed for learners employed full-time within a software development role in industry. The degree is mostly delivered online but with regular on-campus activities.

We wish to appoint a Teaching Associate or Assistant to play a central role in the delivery and design of the programme. You should have a good knowledge of software development as you will be expected to design and develop course materials with guidance from other colleagues, and also teach on the ITSD degree. The ability to teach programming in some of the programming languages taught on this course (e.g. Java, Python, C, PHP, JavaScript, SQL) is essential. Knowledge of current practices/frameworks/tools used as part of software development within industry is desirable. You will also be expected to develop an understanding of good pedagogic practice with regard to online and face-to-face teaching.

You will normally be expected to have a good Honours degree and PhD in a relevant area or equivalent professional experience, to enable you to contribute to the delivery of the ITSD programme and provide student support. You will be expected to develop your knowledge of appropriate teaching methods and work towards eligibility for membership of the Higher Education Academy. Applicants who are seeking a part-time position may also be considered. The post is a one-year fixed term appointment with the possibility of extension contingent on future funding.

The University of Strathclyde has an established Teaching Career pathway which will give you the opportunity for career development and promotion.
