This is an exciting opportunity for a Lecturer (Education) to join us to co-lead the prestigious MSc in Occupational Psychology and Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London (IoPPN, KCL). The appointment will be on the Academic Education Pathway, and we are seeking a passionate and enthusiastic educator with a track record of excellence and ability to inspire and innovate in higher education. The successful applicants will provide academic and pastoral support to students and work closely with colleagues across the faculty and university.
The IoPPN is a Faculty of King’s College London and the largest academic community in Europe devoted to the study and prevention of mental illness and brain disease. The IoPPN’s greatest strength is the interdisciplinary nature of both its research strategy and educational activities, providing unique opportunities for students and staff. Link to IoPPN webpage: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/ioppn/index.aspx
The appointment will be made on the Academic Education Pathway, where the primary contribution to education (80% of role) and secondary contribution to scholarship which is primarily education-focused (20%). On average, this would be the equivalent of four days a week on teaching. The AEP contract is focused on the delivery of education, education-related scholarship, and leadership in education. The following expectations are associated with the AEP: teaching, supervision, student support, educational leadership and innovations, and administration. We are seeking an enthusiastic and dedicated colleague who can make a distinctive contribution to education. We are particularly interested in recruiting someone with a background in, and/or current programme of, pedagogical research and/or research which impacts on the student experience and creates evidence-based teaching. You should have excellent teaching and communication skills and be able to inspire and inform students.
Education and training of the next generation of scientists is a priority at the IoPPN. As post holder, you will provide administrative and educational co-leadership on our MSc in Occupational Psychology and Psychiatry. This would include module leadership, course delivery, assessment, teaching and marking, research project supervision, and personal tutor roles. You may also support other undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses within the school and faculty, for example with project supervision. You should be able to demonstrate suitable teaching skills and experience including curriculum development and assessment design, along with an ability to supervise student research dissertations. Ability to teach statistics and research methods is important.
The scholarship co ponent of the role should not exceed 20% and is expected to be substantially education focused. Therefore, your research should either be in a pedagogical area or one that impacts on the student experience and/or leads to evidence-based teaching. The content of a member of staff’s workload will be decided in discussion with the Head of Department or line manager. Academic staff employed on AEP contracts would be considered to be out of scope for Research Excellence Framework (REF) purposes, given that significant responsibility for research is not included in their contract and job description.
This post will be offered on a full-time, indefinite contract.
