Are you an expert in the use of maths in an engineering environment? Can you lead innovation of teaching and learning in this field?

Underpinned by the breadth, depth and quality of its research, WMG offers a wide range of courses at all levels for full time and part time students, and for company-based personnel from companies such as Airbus, Aston Martin, Dyson, JLR, Lear, Network Rail and Rolls Royce, resulting in a wide range of delivery to satisfy our broad client base.

With significant experience in the field of mathematics and statistics or engineering or digital technologies, you will join a rapidly expanding team in the delivery of innovative Degree Apprenticeship programmes, including the established Applied Engineering Programme and the new Dyson programme. Flexibility to contribute across other undergraduate and postgraduate programmes would be a distinct advantage, as well as a willingness to contribute to strategic growth of new programmes as required.

The teaching and learning environment is rapidly evolving, with a distinct shift to a greater level of engagement utilising technology enabled learning, as well as more traditional lectures. You will need to demonstrate flexibility to adapt and innovate your approach to teaching and learning to embrace this evolution.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to develop your own professional profile and work as part of a successful team, contributing to the development of its teaching and learning activities. In return we will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.

At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Bronze Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognizes the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.

Interview date: Week Commencing 14 October 2019.

Closing date: 25 September 2019
