Lecturer - HE Agriculture
£28,386 – £36,959 per annum 
37 hours per week

This is an exciting time for Hartpury, as from September 2018 we became both a university and a college on a single campus; this is an amazing achievement in the history of our institution. Renowned for excellence in sport, equine, animal and land based curricula, we provide a unique high quality experience in a focused and supportive environment, challenging our learners in the pursuit of excellence.

You will be joining our Agriculture Department, where the team is passionate about the development and delivery of our agriculture programmes. Teaching, research and knowledge exchange activities make use of our extensive agricultural facilities, which includes a commercial mixed farm (450 ha) and, from September 2019, a new Agri-Tech (Livestock) centre.

You will either be an experienced lecturer, able to deliver across our agriculture portfolio at undergraduate level, or you will have extensive experience in the agricultural sector and be seeking a transition into education. The role entails lecturing, module leadership, student support and programme management. You will have, or be willing to undertake, a relevant postgraduate qualification. A background in livestock production, livestock science and husbandry, agricultural technologies or general farm management is required alongside relevant research experience gained in academia or industry.  A teaching qualification is desirable, but candidates without this will be supported to achieve it within their first two years in post. We offer a dynamic and empowering environment where your input can really make a difference and where you can pursue your own career aspirations. Research active candidates will have the opportunity to contribute towards the Animal and Agriculture Research Centre.

We offer excellent benefits including continuous professional development opportunities, Teachers’ Pension Scheme, 35 days’ annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays, onsite fitness facilities, free onsite parking and lots more.

For an informal discussion about the role, you are encouraged to contact Philip Watson, Associate Head of Department Agriculture, at philip.watson@hartpury.ac.uk

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.  All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
