The Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Nottingham is looking to appoint a Teaching Associate in Christian Theology with expertise in Christian Theological Anthropology.
We believe in an inclusive working environment for all. We are welcoming, supportive, and caring, and pride ourselves on our positive community. Diversity is vital to our success and fundamental to our values, and we want to continue to tackle the issues faced by underrepresented groups in Theology and Religious Studies. You will be able to demonstrate an ability to make a positive difference in this regard, and we are particularly keen to receive applications from people who are currently underrepresented in the field.
Shortlisting is anonymous: we cannot see any personal data or the ‘Additional Information’ section in your application until shortlisting is completed. Shortlisting is by criteria-based questions based on the person specification, rather than CV or letter.
About the role:
Your role as Teaching Associate will be varied and challenging. You will convene and teach our undergraduate Level 1 module ‘Christianity and the Challenge of Modernity’, and you will update the teaching materials for the undergraduate Level 2 and 3 module ‘Body and Soul: Christian Theological Anthropology’ in preparation for relaunch of the module. Teaching responsibilities will also include supervising undergraduate dissertations and other contributions to undergraduate and distance learning postgraduate teaching subject to considerations of overall workload.
You will have an excellent track record of delivering quality teaching to undergraduate students. You must have a PhD already awarded (or submitted with viva pending) in Christian Theology. You will have excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to design and deliver high quality up-to-date course materials.
The well-being and development of our students is of utmost importance to us, so the successful candidate will take a proactive role in the pastoral support of students. You will also be responsible for a reasonable share of departmental administration, and the ability to collaborate effectively with others is essential. You will be expected to engage in professional development related to teaching and engage with local and national teaching developments. A high level of IT skills will be required, including excellent knowledge of Microsoft Office 365 applications. You will have the ability to work accurately under pressure, whilst prioritising your own work activities in response to differing needs and demands.
This post will be offered on a full-time (36.25 hours per week), fixed term contract, commencing 8th January 2024 until 20th September 2024.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr. Jon Hoover, Head of Department, email: firstname.lastname@example.org; please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
