A new realm - Fellowship at Warwick
It turns out that graduating from Cambridge wasn’t the end of my academic career at all! Instead, for the next 12 months, I’ll be working at the University of Warwick as a junior teaching fellow in cybersecurity.
What does that mean? Well, in many ways, it’s just like being a lecturer. I’ll be helping to run lectures, group teaching sessions and practical classes for the BSc Cybersecurity students. As I acquaint myself with the courses and students’ learning needs, I’ll also get to design my own teaching materials and even entire course modules. Perhaps the only difference from being a lecturer is that doing research won’t be my primary aim - although I’ll likely get at least a bit of exposure to the cybersecurity group’s research, and I’d love to contribute a little.
I’m incredibly excited to be starting this position. The Cyber Security Centre in WMG is a world-leading group in both teaching and research, and combines academic learning with exposure to industry to set a gold standard for practical degrees. It is an absolute privilege to take this opportunity and I hope to make a difference to the next generation of cyber experts while I’m here.
