Bangor University is committed to being a leader in Teacher Education and Education Research. We are making a significant investment in our teacher education and research capacity to meet the needs of tomorrow’s teaching profession. Following a restructure to combine our School of Education, Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT), and Digital Learning capacity we invite applications for the above role in the new School of Educational Sciences. Our integrated vision matches closely to the national direction of travel in Wales on levels of both policy (Our National Mission) and education research (the National Strategy for Education Research and Enquiry).  

We are an ambitious and growing School of Educational Sciences with a sustained history of excellence in teaching through the medium of Welsh and English going back to 1858. The successful candidate will possess relevant degree/s and a teaching qualification (with QTS for ITE posts).  

For the Master’s role we are seeking expertise across a number of areas of content delivered in the National MA Education (Wales). Applications are being sought from those with previous experience of master’s level teaching, research and dissertation supervision. We would also encourage applications from candidates with considerable experience of ALN.    

We have interest in broad areas of education research that complement our strengths in: 
•    Bilingualism, Language Development and Bilingual Education
•    Inclusion / Special Educational Needs and Behaviour  
•    Teacher Education, Systems Leadership and Professional Learning. 
•    Curriculum, Pedagogy and Educational Interventions 

The successful candidate will possess an undergraduate degree (PhD/EdD in a relevant subject area - for Grade 8) and teaching experience and qualification/recognition (or be willing to work towards).

The ability to communicate in Welsh is desirable for this post.

The University is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, situated on the North Wales coast between the mountains of Snowdonia and the sea, making it one of the most attractive university cities in the UK. Bangor University is proud of its Welsh heritage, yet it is also renowned for its approach to internationalisation and is ranked as one of the 100 most international universities in the world by the Times Higher Education. 

The successful candidate will be expected to commence as soon as possible and the post is available for a period of 2 years in the first instance with the possibility of permanent posts if funding is extended.    Hours can be either full-time or part-time.
