Do you have recent substantial experience in teaching English for Academic Purposes? Are you passionate about teaching and delivering an exceptional student experience? Would you like to teach in both the UK and overseas?
As Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), you will develop and deliver engaging teaching within our large portfolio of programmes in academic language, discourse and literacy. The Language Centre (LC) at the University of Leeds teaches students from all levels: Foundation through to PhD, both in pathway programmes for students prior to beginning their degree studies, and on-course programmes. Leeds is on the forefront of the trend for embedded EAP, including twelve discipline-specific summer pre-sessional programmes, and growing numbers of LC staff seconded into academic departments during the academic year. You will have a scholarship profile which reflects your career stage. With scholarship time a part of every Lecturer in EAP’s workload allocation, the LC boasts a large range of projects, with outputs including publications whether in national and international journals or our own online journal, The Language Scholar.
This role focuses on transnational education and you will spend part of the academic year developing and delivering teaching on English Language and academic skills modules at the University of Leeds-South West Jiaotong University Joint School in Chengdu, China. You will spend the rest of the academic year developing and delivering teaching on our International Foundation Year modules and summer pre-sessional programming.
Teaching will take place on campus in Leeds and China (with the possibility of working in other transnational contexts in the future) as well as online via University of Leeds platforms. You will need to meet the eligibility criteria to satisfy China’s working visa requirements and complete a satisfactory medical screening.
