Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


The University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE), based at Madingley Hall near Cambridge, offers a vibrant and diverse array of courses for adult learners studying for personal enrichment or professional development.

We are currently looking to engage teaching specialists in the fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning and coding to help us deliver an exciting portfolio of short courses aimed at a range of different audiences. These include learners from outside the classical fields of engineering and computer science or professionals who would like to update their knowledge in light of recent technological advances. Typical learners might be managers and policy makers who would like to learn more about the potential impact of the 4th industrial revolution or autonomous vehicles; professionals in the creative arts who would like to explore the power and opportunities of coding in their work.

These specialists will design and deliver specific courses within this portfolio under the guidance of the Institute’s Teaching Officer in STEM.

Successful candidates will be PhD qualified professionals in computer science or relevant engineering disciplines with experience of curriculum development and undergraduate teaching in established UK university settings.

The successful candidates will work collaboratively with the Teaching Officer in STEM, other ICE academics and relevant departments at the University of Cambridge to design and teach the respective courses within this portfolio.

Most of the teaching plan development can be undertaken away from Cambridge although a physical presence in Cambridge will be required for team meetings and course delivery. The teaching sessions will be delivered over the academic year 2019-2020 (commencing in January 2020) and will typically be delivered as four 1.5hour seminars per day. Payment will be made at ICE’s competitive Panel Tutor hourly rate.
