We are now seeking to appoint a new Teaching Fellow to join an existing team of three who run the Bioscience Foundation Programme. Since this programme will prepare students for direct entry into our degree programmes, prior experience of teaching at FHEQ levels 3-4 is essential. We are looking to appoint someone who is experienced in handling the challenges associated with transition to HE and shares the progressive and student-centered teaching philosophy of our existing team.

This post represents part of our planned future growth and development as a School. If you take pride in providing high quality teaching, work to improve methods of delivery and assessment in your field of expertise and are a dynamic, forward thinking team player with a ‘can do’ attitude and an ambition to achieve personally then please get in touch.

The School has a long tradition of teaching across a breadth of Bioscience disciplines from Sport and Exercise Science, Nutrition, Food Science, and Dietetics to Biochemistry and Microbiology. Examples of our 9 undergraduate degree programmes include Biomedical Science, Biological Science and Veterinary Bioscience.

Successful applicants will have at least a BSc in a relevant subject and be working towards or have a postgraduate qualification and have a teaching qualification or fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA). They will have experience within Higher Education and/or Further Education and a proven track record of creativity and innovative educational practice.

Although the post is available from the 1st of August 2022, we will be flexible for a successful candidate who may not be able to start until mid-late September.

In return, we offer an energetic and forward-thinking working environment with access to a variety of staff development opportunities. We are willing to consider fractional appointments if the right candidate cannot commit to full-time employment. You will also receive a competitive salary and a generous annual leave entitlement. Our package includes a final salary pension scheme and discounted membership to the Surrey Sports Park.
