Temporary contract for 36 months

Based in either Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast or Homeworker

As an academic member of staff in the School of Mathematics & Statistics, you will provide an important link between staff in Milton Keynes, our Student Support Team in Manchester, our part-time Associate Lecturers (distributed across the UK and Ireland) and students, located globally.

You will have a key role in ensuring we remain at the forefront of supported online and distance education, particularly in facilitating effective teaching of our mathematics and statistics programmes. You will be responsible for the management and development of part-time Associate Lecturers teaching our modules.

You will have a good Honours Degree (or equivalent) in mathematics and/or statistics or a related field, and will ideally have some postgraduate study experience in statistics or maths education.

You must be committed to the principles of equality and diversity in all aspects of your teaching and management support. Experience of online and/or distance education would be desirable.
