The School of Education is delighted to offer this Chair/Readership in Education Policy. You will be expected to take a lead role in driving forward the School’s research excellence and will have excellent leadership and management skills as well as outstanding communication skills. This appointment is strongly aligned to the School, College and University strategic vision.
This post forms part of the School of Education’s strategic commitment to the strengthening of research excellence in the area of Education Policy.
The post will support the development of research underpinning our new Educational Leadership Academy as well as the expansion of the School’s Masters programmes in Birmingham and overseas. It is expected that the successful applicant will provide excellent research leadership, and contribute to teaching, including PhD supervision.
This post will be based in the Department for Teacher Education which is one of the largest HEI departments for postgraduate teacher education in the country and which hosts our Masters in School Improvement and Educational Leadership. The Department is committed to playing an increasing role in the provision of continuing professional development (CPD) to teachers and leaders in the UK and overseas, in particular on our Dubai campus, underpinned by world leading research in the areas of education policy, school improvement, leading and managing educational change and teacher development.
This Chair/Readership in Education Policy is likely to build upon and complement the Department’s (and the wider School’s) existing strengths and to significantly increase our likelihood of attracting external research income and securing publications in 4* rated outputs, thereby supporting the College and School’s objectives.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity to thrive academically and make a contribution to a dynamic School, which is recognised globally for the quality of its research and programmes. We are happy to discuss flexible working.
