Lecturer/Senior Lecturer, Early Childhood Studies,

University of Roehampton - School of Education

We are looking for a talented lecturer to join our Early Childhood Studies team within the School of Education. The successful applicant will be joining this renowned department situated in the internationally known Froebel College. The team has very close links with the Froebel Trust, which exists to promote Froebelian principles. In addition, the School is part of the Wandle Early Years Hub, one of the Mayor of London’s three strategic schemes to help children from disadvantaged backgrounds fulfil their potential.

While we are looking for those with teaching interests across the wide spectrum of Early Childhood Studies, we are particularly interested in experience in the areas of play, children under 3, working with families, health, safeguarding, history and philosophy of early childhood, and equal opportunities. The successful candidate will contribute to the Early Childhood Studies subject area, which may include BA Early Childhood Studies, MA Early Childhood Studies, Initial Teacher Education and the supervision of PhD students. Candidates should either be qualified to doctoral level or hold a suitable professional qualification, e.g. nursing or teaching.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas. ‘In the Complete University Guide 2018, Roehampton is the highest-ranked modern university in London. Modern, or new, universities are defined as those granted university status post-1992. Complete University Guide does not itself define modern universities and does not produce a separate league table in which these are ranked.’

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working.

To find out more information about the role and what we’re looking for, visit the Working at Roehampton section of our website where you will find full details, how to apply, as well as further information about the benefits of working for us.


The closing date for completed applications is: 13 May 2018

It is expected that interviews will be held in early June 2018

The University is an equal opportunities and ‘disability confident’ employer.
