The Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering is looking to appoint a Lecturer (Teaching) in Electronic Engineering. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will take up the position by 1st January 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.
UCL is one of the foremost universities in Britain and the world. The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL is recognised as one of the leading Departments for research in its subject area, worldwide. Current broad research areas in the Department include Communications and Information Systems; Electronic Materials and Devices (including Nanotechnology); Optical Communications & Networks; Photonics and Sensors, Systems and Circuits.
The Department also has an extensive teaching programme, both at undergraduate (BEng and MEng) and masters levels. The Department launched new BEng and MEng degrees in Engineering (Electronic and Electrical) in 2014. They include a range of new departmental and cross-faculty modules, incorporating problem and scenario-based learning at all stages. This creates a highly engaging learning environment where students put their theoretical knowledge to practical application. The Department has also launched a number of MSc degrees over the years, the latest in Integrated Machine Learning Systems. All programmes encompass the execution of major projects where students work on various engineering or research topics.
The purpose of this post is to support the Department in undergraduate teaching in topics related to Electronic Engineering, delivering lectures and development of the modules in the area of digital electronics, embedded systems and the Internet of Things. The postholder will work with colleagues to develop and deliver a range of modules that develop embedded systems skills including the design of wireless-based sensor systems and cloud-based data processing. The modules include traditional lecture-based delivery, laboratory sessions as well as project-based learning experiences as part of the approach used in the Integrated Engineering Programme of the Engineering Sciences Faculty. Modules in this area are offered by the department at both undergraduate and MSc level.
It is also expected that the role will support developing professional and design skills for the students as part of these modules. Duties will also include being a tutor for small groups of students through their early years of the degree. It is also expected that the post-holder will supervisor student project work at undergraduate (3rd and 4th year level) as well as at MSc level. The fourth year team projects are often linked with industry and it is desirable for the post holder to have experience of collaborating with industrial partners on student projects.
