We are seeking to appoint a new lecturer in Computing in our Programming
Languages and Systems research group based at our Canterbury campus,
University of Kent.

Job description / Additional Information / Please apply at


Closing date for applications: 26 August 2022 (end of day, UK time)

The Programming Languages and Systems (PLaS) research group spans the
breadth and depth of practical and theoretical aspects of programming
languages and system building related to languages. Our work goes across
paradigms (imperative, object-oriented, functional, logic) and is
complemented by our systems research in concurrency, relaxed memory,
verified compilation, verification, language prototypes, garbage
collection, and tools. All our work is linked by a shared vision of the
power and impact of programming languages on the rest of Computer Science.
The PLaS group at Kent has a long history of contributions to the field and
continues to be a hotbed of programming language research in the South East
of England:


The School of Computing [1] is a welcoming, supportive, and diverse

Bronze Athena SWAN [2] award. We are keen to enhance the balanced,
inclusive and diverse nature of the community within our School and would
particularly encourage female candidates to apply for these posts.

We are committed to delivering high quality research and education. The
School’s five broad research areas are Programming Languages and Systems;
Computer Security; Computational Intelligence; Data Science; and Computing
Education. Full details can be found at:

The University of Kent campus is in Canterbury, overlooking the historic
city centre. Canterbury is a small city that retains parts of its medieval
walls (with Roman foundations). Famous for its heritage (Canterbury
Cathedral; Chaucer’s Tales; etc), Canterbury is a vibrant community and
UNESCO World Heritage site whose culture and leisure facilities are
enhanced by hosting three universities. With 125 nationalities represented,
the Canterbury campus has a very cosmopolitan feel. The city and
surrounding region combines an attractive and affordable environment,
outstanding schools, and fast transport links to London and mainland Europe.
