You must be willing to undergo MoD security clearance, and act to retain that clearance. Please be aware that the role involves teaching outside of the standard academic term time. 

The positions are available immediately and the successful candidate should be available to commence employment as soon as possible. The university offers a relocation allowance to successful candidates, conditions apply.
