The Business school has an outstanding international reputation in management research, learning, development of resources, and journal publishing and works in close cooperation with industry, government and the not-for-profit sectors.

You will be joining a team of experienced and innovative educational developers, learning designers and media specialists to lead the evaluation of curriculum and pedagogical work on key undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Led by the Academic Director Business Co-Design and working closely with other team members, this post will provide leadership in educational research and evaluation and direction for the final stages of the Connected Learning at Scale (CLaS) project as it moves into its business-as-usual phase.

With a PhD in education, business education or a related field, you will be an emerging authority in your field of expertise and bring an impressive record of published work or other demonstrated scholarly activities to continue to build on your national reputation for research excellence.

  • work closely with the CLaS project's educational design and development team along with other Professional Services staff to effectively support complex educational change projects. You will use your research skills to support other staff engaging in pedagogical research and share and disseminate their insights widely
  • engage in critical evaluation and research around the implementation of the project, working with the rest of the team to apply a research-informed and rigorous framework to evaluation and improvement.
