They will also be expected to teach a second-year 30-credit module, preferably on Greek drama, and supervise second-year projects attached to this module. They will teach 50% of the third-year “Thinking Myth” module and will supervise final-year students’ dissertations. They will also be expected to develop a new third-year module which they will teach in the second year of their employment. In their second year, they will also help co-ordinate teaching for Foundation Year students.  Additionally, the appointee will be expected to contribute to administrative duties, taking on an administrative role, to act as Personal Tutor to undergraduate students and to attend relevant meetings and committees, as required. They will work closely with the Head of Department, the UG Education Lead and other academic members of staff in areas including curriculum design, lesson planning, and the development and implementation of learning technologies.
