Job description

The School of Sport and Wellbeing, and the Institute of Coaching and Performance (ICaP), is inviting applications for the post of Senior Lecturer in Coaching and Elite Performance. This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and interdisciplinary team and to contribute to the academic development, course management, teaching, research development, knowledge transfer, and scholarship within the School in the area of coaching and performance. We would welcome applicants with expertise across the spectrum in coaching and performance.

The appointee will predominantly be focused on postgraduate research programmes delivered off-campus, specifically the Professional Doctorate and Professional Masters in Elite Performance. As such, applicants will have the ability to work in collaboration with existing group members, an active and supportive approach to inter-disciplinary and applied research both internally and externally to the University, and the aptitude to engage with a range of teaching and learning strategies to support postgraduate programmes.

The successful applicant will have experience of teaching and supporting post-graduate students as well as contemporary experience of applied work in a practical coaching/performance environment. In addition to having a good honours degree and a PhD in a related area of study and having published in relevant peer-review journals, it is desirable that the successful applicant has other qualifications commensurate with the role (such as professional accreditation). It is also expected that the successful applicant will be able to demonstrate an appropriate level of research activity, grant capture and income generation commensurate to the role and a track record of producing research output to a standard that is REF returnable via collaboration within and outside the University.
