For the right candidate, there will be the opportunity to put your own mark on the curriculum, and you will be encouraged to be bold and innovative. The teaching will range from leading first year theory lectures to supervising final year dissertations. There will also be the opportunity to get involved in the practice side of the course.

We are seeking an applicant who is committed to pursuing their research interests, or willing to work collaboratively with colleagues and external partners to make funding bids.
