Professor of Inclusive Computer Science Education

Professor of Inclusive Computer Science Education

The Full Professor of Inclusive Computer Science Education, working in a TU Dublin, national and European context, will establish TU Dublin as a national and European leader in addressing gender diversity in computer science. 

The primary objective of the role is to improve gender balance in computing education at all levels, from undergraduate and graduate studies, to leadership roles in academia and industry.

The Professor will focus on producing the evidence base for reforming computer science curricula and developing supportive learning environments within computing education in order to maximise the opportunities for success for female students. Curriculum reform will place an emphasis on social innovation, responsible technology, ethical considerations and will be in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals. It will provide a greater societal context for computer science and computing education programs, making them more attractive for female students. It will also encourage cultural change within computer science faculties, involve males in developing a more inclusive culture, and encouraging more women to overcome the main challenges that prevent women to reach senior academic positions.

TU Dublin will provide extensive organisational and cultural supports in line with those accorded to outstanding research academics recruited to the University.
