We are pleased to announce that we are now recruiting for a new SICSA Director of Education. Applications are welcome from any suitable member of academic staff working at a SICSA member institution.
SICSA Education has a focus on enhancing collaboration across the core activities of Undergraduate and Postgraduate education provision in Scotland. The group represents common interests to government; employers; professional and practitioner organisations; and the wider education sectors. These include resourcing for University Computing programmes, secondary school qualifications, the transition from school to University, and graduate skills.
Research pooling across Scotland is entering an exciting phase. Having recently released the review of pooling, the SFC are considering a number of recommendations which present opportunities for someone interested this role. You can help shape the foundations for the future of SICSA as we develop into a new powerhouse for Scottish research. Anyone interesting in taking on this role should be willing to work with others in the directorate on developing a new direction for SICSA in light of a changing funding landscape.
If you would like to speak informally about the role, please contact the SICSA Director, Professor Aaron Quigley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
