Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Environmental Technology

University of Wolverhampton - Faculty of Science and Engineering

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for the post of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Environmental Technology.

The University of Wolverhampton is committed to providing high quality courses, facilities and resources to actively grow the area of Science, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. The Faculty of Science and Technology has successfully delivered over £60m of new buildings and resources, the latest of which, the £24m Rosalind Franklin Building has recently opened. This building provides a state of the art environment where students are taught the key practical skills associated with their studies in three large 90-seater teaching laboratories.

Students work alongside research staff on projects which contribute toward new scientific discoveries in their field. The facilities also provide an opportunity for the wider community to engage in science and technology, offering schools, colleges and local employers the chance to explore science and develop practical skills.

The School of Architecture & the Built Environment is an active and thriving subject area within the Faculty with good industrial links, active research outputs and professionally accredited programmes delivered in the UK and overseas. The School is committed to growing its academic provision which centres on the environment, architecture, construction, and civil engineering.

This post is a reflection of that growth agenda. The post has four key performance areas; teaching, research, course development and external income activities.

Teaching will involve lecturing environmental modules on the undergraduate and post graduate courses, and delivering laboratory based activities and student projects from undergraduate to PhD level. Due to the highly student-focussed nature of our activities, you will be expected to demonstrate enthusiasm for teaching and to cooperate wholeheartedly with other staff in the School in their wide-ranging activities. The generation of research outputs is expected to build upon the successes the School have had in previous research submissions and activities, as well as contributing to recruitment, marketing, transnational education and business activities within the School.

You must have a good higher degree in an environmental or cognate subject or equivalent (a Phd in a cognate subject is essential). The University of Wolverhampton operates a widening participation policy and as such you should be able to demonstrate that you can develop and maintain empathy and a good rapport with students.

For informal discussions regarding the post contact the Head of School, Mohammed Arif (01902 322261, mohammed.arif@wlv.ac.uk).

The University of Wolverhampton values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
