The School of Engineering is seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor (Teaching Focussed) to undertake development, delivery and administration of teaching and learning in the area of Diagnostics, Data and Digital Health in the Systems and information Engineering stream within the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick. The successful candidate will primarily work on the newly established taught MSc programme in Diagnostics, Data and Digital Health that has been developed as part of the University’s STEM Grand Challenge project. The STEM Grand Challenge is a significant investment by the University of Warwick to improve the teaching, learning and research capabilities for Science and Engineering. This is an opportunity to be part of the University’s vision to develop cutting-edge teaching facilities alongside education that will be characterised by learning beyond boundaries, greater interdisciplinarity, and by student research.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and excellent academic to drive the development of this new interdisciplinary programme, helping to establish the course curriculum and deliver teaching in your areas of expertise. You will support teaching, learning and assessment activities including lectures, tutorials, and project supervision. You will enhance the School’s teaching reputation, both internally and externally, and contribute to the development of high-quality teaching and student experience in Diagnostics, Data and Digital Health.
You must demonstrate sufficient breadth and depth of specialist knowledge in a core aspect of Diagnostics, Data and Digital Health through previous research, teaching or industrial experience to develop teaching, learning and assessments, particularly in Digital Healthcare and/or Health Data Analytics and/or Medical Imaging. You will have a good honours degree (minimum 2:1) and a postgraduate qualification (PhD) in a relevant discipline.
You will be familiar with a variety of strategies to promote and assess learning and have proven competence in teaching in higher education. You will also have an ability to use a range of delivery techniques to engage the interest and enthusiasm of students and inspire effective learning.
You must have the capacity to contribute collegiately to the life and community of the Department by undertaking a variety of duties, such as supporting offer holder days and outreach activities which may occasionally require weekend work.
You will have strong communication, IT, time management and organisational skills, along with excellent interpersonal skills with relevant experience of working independently and as part of a team. You will understand equal opportunity issues and practical health and safety concerns in a teaching or industrial context. Engagement in professional, pedagogic and practitioner research and other scholarly activity is also expected.
We welcome applicants with industrial experience that can inform an industrially relevant curriculum and who have a desire to engage in research. Applications from candidates in groups under-represented in the Diagnostics, Data and Digital Health sector are particularly welcome.
The University aims to promote work life balance for all employees and the School of Engineering will consider a range of possible flexible working arrangements in order to recruit the best candidate.
