Further information can be found at http://www.keele.ac.uk.
The School is currently seeking to recruit two full-time Lecturers in Education. These posts represent an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual to join a well-established and growing Education team who are part of a multi-disciplinary school. The School brings together academics in Criminology, Education, International Relations, Philosophy, Politics and Sociology to deliver single and combined honours degree courses, pioneering taught postgraduate programmes and postgraduate supervision with world leading researchers.
The successful candidates will have a PhD in Education, or equivalent qualification, and relevant proven experience of undergraduate teaching, assessment and supervision, with clear evidence of ability and willingness to teach at postgraduate level and contribute to the delivery of online programmes. They will be expected to demonstrate excellent teaching abilities, and relevant administrative skills, and be able to demonstrate the ability to make a strong contribution to research or scholarship activity.
The post-holders will be responsible in the first instance for the delivery and development of our postgraduate taught programmes, including our on-line degree programmes, and to contribute, as necessary, to our undergraduate taught programmes. They will also contribute to support and supervision for our Professional Doctorate and PhD cohorts. The post-holders will be expected to make a significant contribution to the range of existing Education modules as well as developing and delivering teaching that reflects their own research specialism(s). We welcome applicants who can either add to our existing areas of strength in teaching and research or to areas for growth and development, including educational technology and / or early years education. The post-holders will be expected to make a strong contribution to Education research and inter-disciplinary research across the School; or, if applying under the E and S job family, to make a strong contribution to educational scholarship and development in the discipline of Education, and, in time, to contribute actively to the general academic culture of the subject, School and Faculty.
