Teaching Associate

University of Nottingham - School of Sociology and Social Policy

The School of Sociology and Social Policy (SSP) is a vibrant, diverse and exciting centre for social science teaching and research. We are a multidisciplinary unit covering criminology, public policy, social policy, social work and sociology. Cutting across these disciplinary boundaries are two shared values: the promotion of global and social justice and a desire in our teaching and research to ‘make a difference’. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with a background in social and public policy to join an established team in the School of Sociology and Social Policy. The role holder is expected to make a significant contribution to research and teaching in social and public policy in the School. Taking responsibility for the quality of their educational programmes they will maintain high standards of teaching, and contribute generally to the development of teaching, teaching methods and assessment in social and public policy. The successful candidate will also be expected to take an active role in teaching administration and the wider development of teaching within the School.

We welcome applications from recent PhD graduates and from those close to award but applicants must have relevant teaching experience.

This is a full-time job but we will consider applications from candidates who wish to work part-time (to 0.8FTE, 29 hours per week – please indicate your preference on your application). The role is available from 01 January 2018 on a fixed term basis until 30 September 2018.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Ian Shaw (Ian.Shaw@nottingham.ac.uk). Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.

The University of Nottingham is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
