The Department of Mathematics wishes to appoint a Teaching Fellow in Statistics, to be in post by May 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The post holder will provide teaching cover (for up to ten hours a week of lectures and classes); this is to include the delivery of Statistics modules to mathematics students at undergraduate and MSc levels, and ancillary modules.  The post holder will also carry out personal tutoring and undergraduate and MSc project supervision work within the Department of Mathematics.

You must have recent experience and proven competence of teaching or tutoring at an undergraduate level, and be able to demonstrate the potential to teach Statistics effectively and enthusiastically at an undergraduate level.

You must have experience of promoting effective learning and interaction with students, together with an ability to motivate mathematics students in the study of statistics. The ability to contribute to the research profile of the Department is highly desirable.
