The post is offered on a full-time open basis from 1 September 2024, and the role-holder can be appointed to a contract that includes either teaching and administration only, or teaching, research and administration. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with significant industry achievements and teaching experience within a higher education context.

You will supervise individual undergraduates and MA students and potentially also PhD students. Your administrative duties will involve participation in committees, and activities related to student recruitment, pastoral care and public outreach.

If appointed to a contract that includes research, you will undertake a programme of independent research that includes major grant applications and leads to high-quality outputs for the School’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF).
We recognise the many benefits of a diverse workforce and are committed to ensuring an inclusive place to work, live and study. We particularly encourage applications from women and members of minority groups, who are underrepresented across the School as a whole.
