Network of Hope Professional Tutor in Education Studies

Liverpool Hope University

Liverpool Hope University is a vibrant community with high scholarly standards.  We are proud of our past, confident in our present and ambitious for our future. Research is central to our curriculum development and enhancement and all academic staff at the University engage in research. Building upon our REF 2014 submission we are looking with ambition and confidence to the next REF, strengthening even further our research degree programme (PhD and EdD). This developing research expertise builds upon and complements our already well established reputation for excellence in teaching and learning. Our policy is to combine these elements of our work in keeping with the University’s stated academic profile as a research-informed teaching University of distinction. It is in this context that we now seek scholars in a number of areas who will join with us in pursuit of excellence; these opportunities include the post of:

Network of Hope Tutor in Education Studies

The Faculty of Education at Liverpool Hope University is expanding and as a part of this has recently been restructured along clear academic lines. This restructure has enabled us to bring into sharp focus the existing research-informed teaching strengths of which we are already justly proud. Three new departments have emerged.  These are:

  • The Department of Education Studies
  • The Department of Disability and Education
  • The Department of Early Childhood

In addition to the delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at its Hope Park campus in Liverpool, the faculty has a long-standing commitment to providing degree programmes via its partnership with Holy Cross College, in Bury and St Mary’s college in Blackburn. As a result of our continued expansion in this area we are seeking to appoint a Network of Hope tutor with specialist knowledge in Education Studies. All applications will be very carefully considered.  However, we are looking for focused specialists who are at the forefront of a particular discipline of education and teach and research in the area in which you have detailed expertise. Those who have a particular specialism in any of the following areas are particularly welcome to explore this opportunity with us:

  • Philosophy of Education, particularly as related to political perspectives
  • History of Education, particularly as related to the history of schooling
  • Sociology of Education, particularly as related to social policy, issues of social justice or aspects of (global) citizenship
  • Psychology of Education, particularly educational psychology, social psychology or personality

This post is a fixed-term appointment from 1st September 2017 to 30th June 2018 in the first instance.

We recruit staff nationally and internationally as we seek out the best to help build Hope for the future. If you join us you will be doing so at an exciting and challenging time as we work to build a liberal arts inspired university of distinction in the UK. If you have the energy, drive and commitment to assist us in this task, we would be delighted to hear from you.
