jobs description

Do you find it challenging being part of a newly started Bachelor programme in Computer Science? Does it appeal to you to teach computer science in an international environment? Do you hold a computer science degree? Then a position as faculty at Niels Brock Copenhagen Business College might just be you

The three-year Bachelor (Hons) programme in Computer Science is a fully accredited UK Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Computer Science because it is taught in collaboration with De Montford University in Leicester, UK. We had our first intake in September 2023, our second in January 2024 and the programme will grow again in September 2024 with our third intake. The programme contains both up-to-date subjects like AI, Big Data, and Agile Development and classic disciplines like Database design and implementation, Programming, and Data Structures and Algorithms but also development projects with both individual and group elements. The setup will provide students with a sound mix of a... theoretical base and a practical approach to computer science in a way where their theoretical knowledge will be applied on real cases. The teaching is arranged in blocks of 6-7 weeks meaning that in one block students will follow only one subject (e.g., databases) and then move on to the next block following another subject (e.g., programming). All in all, the programme prepares students for a wide variety of career opportunities, from programming and developer roles to software engineering, with computer technology closely linked with an extensive range of industries such as medicine, education, entertainment, security and architecture or a further academic career.

To this programme we are looking for dedicated, passionate faculty. Because the programme has run for less than a year here in Copenhagen, we are still in the entrepreneurial phase and building the Computer Science environment at Niels Brock. You could see yourself as a pioneer-teacher – but you will not be on your own. The current very dedicated faculty will support you and the close relation to De Montford University means that you will collaborate closely with your UK co-teacher and that you will contextualise content to Danish conditions and your own experience.

We are looking for a number of faculty members that can fulfill both the general requirements listed below and that can cover a wide range of the programmes subjects – at the moment with focus on the first and second years subjects.
