We seek to appoint a Lecturer in Education Studies. In 2022, the School of Education introduced January starts for three courses, including the MSc Education Studies. Numbers for this course (all international) continue to grow and will form a key part of our portfolio going forward. The main focus of work will be this course, with an expectation that the postholder will also contribute to appropriate other teaching in their own particular areas of expertise, grant income generation, and high-quality research.
The School of Education supports a vibrant multi-disciplinary research environment that coalesces around ten research clusters to which the post-holder will be expected to contribute. We are especially keen that applicants’ research is impactful in its application, attracts significant external funding, and has international reach.
The School of Education at the University of Strathclyde is the leading provider of teacher education in Scotland, and one of the largest in the UK. Our plans for 2021-22 and beyond build on the successes of recent years with an ambitious plan for the future, demonstrating our intention to grow in terms of activity, student numbers and profile / reputation. We have thriving international and distance learning courses for educators globally, as well as strong networks that ensure that our high-quality research activity is increasingly internationally recognised and impactful. We have very strong professional partnerships with Scottish local authorities, Scottish Government and other policy-makers. The School is in a very strong position, having grown all aspects of our work over a number of years.
With over 100 members of academic staff and an extensive portfolio of activity, this is a vibrant environment in which to work and study. We are bold, ambitious and innovative in our thinking, with an environment that encourages collaboration and supports staff in all aspects of their professional lives.
The School of Education is ranked in the top quartile in the UK in terms of the power of its research measured by the volume and international quality of its research activity. We have research connections across the world, and a key feature of the research undertaken by colleagues in the School of Education is its synergy with our research, teaching and knowledge exchange (KE) activity. In addition to academic publications, our research is disseminated through the accredited courses we teach, and it is also central to the varied forms of KE work in which we engage.
Applicants will have a good Honours degree and PhD/EdD, or equivalent research/scholarly credentials, in a relevant discipline. Applicants will have a body of published research in high-quality publications demonstrating standards of excellence and previous relevant teaching experience at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels. The successful applicant will demonstrate a successful track record of doctoral supervision through to successful completion and will also demonstrate a successful track record of Knowledge Exchange activity in the form of professional learning for practitioners.
Formal interviews for this post will be held on 19 December 2022.
Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Linda Brownlow, Head of School (email@example.com).
