Maths and Statistics Advice (MASA) is a dynamic maths and statistics study advisory service, operating within bespoke premises located prominently within the University of Surrey’s Library & Learning Centre (LLC). The service sits alongside, but is also part of (and works extensively with), the University’s well-established Learning Development service, Academic Skills and Development.

This is one of two full-time, ongoing posts in MASA. For the other post, see: Maths and Statistics Advice Manager (Teaching Fellow in Maths AND/OR Statistics Learning Development) https://jobs.surrey.ac.uk/Vacancy.aspx?id=12313&forced=1

The post-holder will contribute significantly to the development, enhancement and active promotion of MASA as a student-focused (and staff-supportive) service.

Key features of the role include:

  • Developing students to become confident and independent learners in the handling, interpretation and utilising of maths and statistics, via drop-ins and appointments, small group-based support activities, workshops and, through collaboration with faculty staff, programme-embedded class-based activities.
  • Developing extensive understanding of the application of maths and/or statistics to specific subject/programme contexts.
  • Building strong collaborative working relationships with faculty colleagues, to identify and help to address issues in the design, development and delivery of maths and statistics-related learning, teaching and assessment activities; this may involve the co-design/delivery of bespoke teaching interventions in specific modules.
  • Promoting and developing pedagogically-considered, effective and innovative methods in maths and/or statistics teaching, learning and assessment.
  • Developing a programme of training and ongoing development for a small number of Research students to augment the activities of the core MASA staff.
  • Supporting the Maths and Statistics Advice Manager in the ongoing evaluation and development of the service and its provision.
