Do you have recent substantial experience in English for Academic Purposes (EAP)? Are you actively engaged in the area of assessment and testing in EAP?  Are you passionate about teaching and delivering an exceptional student experience? Are you actively engaged in scholarship?

As a Lecturer (Teaching & Scholarship) in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), you will develop and deliver engaging teaching within our large portfolio of programmes in academic literacy, as well as contribute to academic leadership in the field of EAP, particularly in the area of assessment and testing. The Language Centre (LC) at the University of Leeds teaches students from all levels: Foundation through to PhD, both in pathway programmes for students prior to beginning their degree studies, and on-course programmes. Leeds is on the forefront of the trend for embedded EAP, including twelve discipline-specific summer pre-sessional programme, and growing numbers of LC staff seconded into academic departments during the academic year.

You will have a scholarship profile which reflects your career stage. With scholarship time as part of every EAP lecturer’s workload allocation, the LC can now boast a large range of projects, with outputs including publications whether in national and international journals or our own online journal, The Language Scholar. Unique to Leeds is the degree of close working between language teaching professionals across all languages, with ample opportunity to work with colleagues in the wider School, and access to the resources and ambition of the largest school of languages in the UK.
