We offer an exciting Graduate Teaching Associate opportunity in Autonomous Systems within the School of Engineering, supporting graduates in relevant disciplines to develop the skills and experience to become the Lecturers of the future. These are excellent development roles for graduates with an aspiration to enter an academic career. Employed two days a week to support teaching, the GTA will pursue doctoral research studies on the remaining three days, supported by a stipend. 


Our Schools pursue impactful, applied research while providing an excellent education and experience for our students. Each GTA will develop the ability to fulfil both of these expectations. Research and teaching will be in areas related to Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, with a PhD project entitled “Robust Control Development for System Engineering Applications”. 
Each GTA position will be for a period of up to 5 years, during which we will support the appointees to develop their experience in teaching and assessment, and complete their doctoral studies. Each School will agree tailored teaching and research development plans with the GTA. 


At the end of the period, a successful GTA will have completed their doctoral studies and gained the experience necessary to fulfil a Lecturer role. 


This fixed-term position is based at the Pontypridd Campus of the University of South Wales. A GTA must also meet the progression requirements of a part-time PhD student.  


The terms and conditions of the post (including grade and salary) will be those of the University of South Wales.
