The University of Surrey is an international university with a world-class teaching and research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward thinking, our heritage shows a recurring theme of doing things differently. The School of Mechanical Engineering Sciences is a major contributor to the research and teaching activities of the Faculty of Engineering and Physics Sciences. We are home to four Research Centres, in Automotive Engineering, Aerodynamics and Environmental Flow, Biomedical Engineering, and Engineering Materials, as well as having a significant role in the Surrey Space Centre. Our research activity is reflected strongly in our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and training. The School is looking to strengthen its activity and leadership in the strategic areas of its portfolio through this post.
To build our student experience within the School, the senior personal tutor role focuses on personal tutoring and enhancing the student experience. This post has a limited teaching contribution to enable time to contribute and influence at School and Faculty level. If you take pride in providing high quality student support and are a forward-thinking team player with an ambition to achieve personally then please get in touch. You will have experience in teaching within either Further Education or Higher Education, or both, and of course, have a proven track record of excellence in personal tutoring and student support. Successful candidates will have a degree in a relevant subject or equivalent relevant experience.
We are looking for candidates that can provide learning support within the discipline context: academics with passion and care to provide high quality personal tutoring contextualized to their discipline that fosters strong relationships with students and helps them connect with the excellent support we have within the Chief Student Officer (CSO) portfolio and elsewhere. As a member of the School, ideally you should be able to teach modules across core Mechanical Engineering Sciences programmes. An interest in finite element modelling, design and/or laboratory-based teaching is especially welcome.
The School of Mechanical Engineering Sciences is home to around 40 academic members of staff, 750 undergraduate students and 70 doctoral students, as well as 40 research, technical and administrative staff. Each of our research centres are supported by cutting edge experimental facilities including advanced microscopy and surface analysis, wind tunnels, mechanical and vibration testing, design centre, and mechanical workshops. We are also home to a Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre and a NERC-National Centre for Atmospheric Sciences.
In addition to a sector-leading salary you will receive a generous annual leave entitlement and excellent development opportunities. Our benefits package includes discounted membership to the Surrey Sports Park, nursery on site and relocation assistance (subject to meeting certain criteria). At Surrey, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment that offers equitable opportunities for all, in the pursuit of Surrey’s vision to be a leading global University. We work together to create a truly inclusive culture. The School has a current Athena SWAN Bronze Award and we place great value on diversity and welcome applicants from all backgrounds. We are seeking to increase the diversity within our community and would particularly encourage applications from women and from other under-represented groups.
