School of Sport and Exercise Science

Location:  Lincoln 
Salary:   From £33,199 per annum
This is a full time post and is fixed term for 1 year or at the earliest return of the postholder
Closing Date:   Monday 27 May 2019

The School of Sport and Exercise Science was established in 2006 and now delivers a number of highly successful undergraduate and postgraduate multidisciplinary programmes and has a small but thriving postgraduate research community. Key priorities within the School are teaching and research, however the School is ambitious to develop its enterprise and consultancy activities. The School provides an excellent teaching environment that is facilitated by a ‘state of the art’ Human Performance Centre, a dedicated facility for applied sport and exercise science teaching and research, which includes Physiology and Biomechanics laboratories, a dedicated Strength and Conditioning suite and extensive practical facilities. TEF Subject metrics (pilot data 2018) indicate that our learning resources are in the top 10% nationally.

This appointment is to cover maternity leave and is fixed-term for 12 months. The appointment is to cover modules that include the sociology and development of physical education. We would be interested in applicants who could also cover other areas of the Physical Education and Sport Development and Coaching programmes, alongside contributing to the teaching on the under-graduate research methods strand. Our programmes have an applied and experiential approach to learning and students are often exposed to work-based learning within the community to expose students to real-life work scenarios. Applicants would need to be able to support these opportunities and the appointed person would need to be able to advance the students’ understanding of research enquiry and be able to introduce and teach a wide range of methodologies applicable to our under-graduate programmes.

The appointed person will contribute to the enterprise and consultancy income generation plans of the School. Applicants would be expected to be innovative and creative in their teaching, be adaptable, and have excellent communication skills. If you wish to discuss this post further Cathy Thomas, Head of School cthomas@Lincoln.ac.uk would be happy to talk to you.
