The role

The School of Education is looking for a senior academic who has passion and enthusiasm for research in education and who can share these qualities with other colleagues to lead a research cluster towards successful outputs, impact and funding. 

The School of Education is one of the very best UK Education departments, with an outstanding reputation for excellence in teaching, research and employability of our students. Ranked fifth in REF2014 in terms of grade point average, the School of Education is a vibrant community of scholars, with members across the range of career levels, many of who are internationally-acclaimed researchers pursuing innovative and critical research agendas, and future leaders establishing such profiles. The multidisciplinary nature of education as an academic discipline is reflected in the diverse range of expertise and research foci that are represented in the School of Education. This diversity is captured across our internationally recognised thematic research clusters: Assessment, Monitoring and Educational Effectiveness; Evidence for Education Policy and Practice, Higher and Further Education; Educational Psychology; Intercultural Communication and Education; Pedagogy and Curriculum.

Applicants must demonstrate world-leading research excellence related to one or more of the aforementioned thematic research clusters. The posts offer an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of internationally excellent research and teaching while allowing unrivalled opportunities for career progression in an exciting and progressive institution.

Successful candidates will ideally be in post by September 2019.
