The Role

York St John University is an ambitious, modern university at the heart of historic city of York and there’s never been a more exciting time to join us. After investing over £110 million in our campus and facilities, establishing nine new schools and developing a suite of attractive, contemporary courses, we’ve seen the biggest rise across all English universities in UCAS acceptances this year.

Central to our ambition is commitment to academic excellence. Over a third of our research is already considered world leading or internationally excellent. Our ambition is to increase our capacity to deliver world leading research, particularly research that has a significant real world impact. We’ve also created the conditions for quality teaching. We’re third in the UK for the proportion of our academics with formal teaching qualifications, we’re a consistent Stonewall Top 100 employer and we hold the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice. 

As part of our expansion we are recruiting for a Lecturer in Research Methods. The successful candidate will work within the School of Sport. It is considered essential that the research expertise and interests aligns with current research activity within the school. In this regards, individuals with a record of publication examining perfectionism is essential.

You will have a PhD (or be near completion of a PhD) and be able to demonstrate current research activity in terms of peer-reviewed publications. In regards to teaching experience and responsibilities, you will support the development and delivery of quantitative research methods on a suite of undergraduate programmes.
