Following several years of robust growth followed by strong staff recruitment, we are pleased to offer an additional post at the Lecturer level. 

The School of Human Sciences is located across two campuses. The sport and Exercise portfolio is based on the Avery Hill campus. Its sports laboratory facilities are part of a significant investment in the School and part of a long-term plan to build internationally leading research and teaching in the Faculty.  As part of this investment, we are looking to appoint dynamic and engaged colleagues to help grow and develop the School. 

We welcome applications from individuals with an interest in any area of Sport and Exercise. This reflects our already strong coverage of core curriculum areas and clear research interest groups. As a Faculty we also welcome candidates whose research work will resonate with one or more new interdisciplinary Faculty Research Centres within the newly formed Institute for Lifecourse Development:

  • Centre for Chronic Disease and Ageing
  • Centre for Exercise Activity and Rehabilitation
  • Centre for Inequalities 
  • Centre for Mental Health 
  • Centre for Professional Workforce Development
  • Centre for Thinking and Learning
  • Centre for Vulnerable Children and Families

The School has an active and growing research base. We performed well in REF2021, particularly with regard to ‘research environment’. The University is currently rated TEF silver, reflecting our excellent teaching and learning, and we have realistic aspirations to achieve a TEF rating of ‘gold’ in any forthcoming assessment exercise. 

We are looking to recruit individuals with a strong and developing track record of research who, at the same time, can demonstrate commitment to teaching excellence and innovation. We actively sustain and promote a collegiate atmosphere that is underpinned by equality, diversity, and inclusion. Candidates would be expected to have an MSc qualification in sport, exercise or a related subject as a minimum together with appropriate experience of teaching in the HE sector for this level.

We aim to be an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

We do this through taking positive action such as encouraging applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, disabled and LGBT+ people. As part of our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Time to Change Employer Pledge/Mentally Healthy Universities, we are committed to promoting and supporting the physical and mental health of all our staff and removing barriers to improve inclusion. 

We encourage applicants to disclose experience of mental health problems so we can support them fully during our recruitment process and make any necessary reasonable adjustments. Any information disclosed will be kept confidential and separate from the job application form. 

We are making significant strides to understand and continuously improve our employees’ experience and we are committed to implementing progressive diversity talent management
