Assistant Professor (Research)
Research Centre for Global Learning

Full-time, 1-year fixed term contract

This is the chance for you to join one of Coventry University’s Research Centres and to work alongside colleagues passionate about transforming global education through impactful research.

The Research Centre for Global Learning are seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor to work as part of a small, dynamic team, leading on a range of research-related activities which will contribute to GLEA’s future success. This post will sit within the Development, Engagement and Attainment research theme, which seeks to use empirical evidence to understand learning environments and reduce inequalities in educational attainment in schools, colleges and universities. The theme is multi-disciplinary and draws on expertise from education, sociology, psychology, and linguistics, among other areas. As such, we welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. We are particularly interested in understanding and addressing inequalities due to socio-economic background, ethnic group, or special educational need.

The post of Assistant Professor will be responsible for a portfolio of research related activities including bid writing, working on research projects, supervision of postgraduate research students, publishing and/or disseminating research results, and creating impact. Additionally, the successful applicant will support the delivery of the Centre’s Structured PhD in Global Education.

The successful applicant should hold a PhD and demonstrate significant research experience in a field relevant to education, including income generation (either as lead or as part of a team), publication profile and project management skills. Detailed requirements for applying for this position can be found on the job description below. Please note the post may also include some international travel.

As an institution we hold an Athena Swan Bronze Award and are a Disability Confident Employer. In addition, we have signed up to the Social Mobility Pledge to highlight our commitment to improving social mobility. 

Demonstrating a commitment to provide equality of opportunity, we would particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic applicants who are currently under-represented within the centre. All applicants will be judged on merit, according to the selection criteria.

Our staff and students come from all over the world, and we proudly promote a friendly and inclusive culture. For more information see https://www.coventry.ac.uk/the-university/key-information/equality-and-diversity/

If you are interested in finding out more about the above opportunity, please contact Professor Julia Carroll ab8107@coventry.ac.uk.

Closing date: 14/12/21
