We are seeking to appoint an Associate Professor whose experience and scholarship aligns with innovative and engaging pedagogy, and a commitment to supporting the career development of our students.

It is essential that you are able to work with academics, students and external stakeholders to deliver an outstanding student experience and graduate outcomes.
Applicants should hold at least a postgraduate qualification and will be supported to complete a PhD. You will be expected to have a strong academic foundation to deliver excellent teaching, supervise student projects, participate in the University’s recruitment initiatives, including Open Days, and provide pastoral support as a Personal Tutor to an allocated group of students.
