Teaching Fellow / Senior Teaching Fellow
ABOUT THE ROLE
The Engineering & Design Institute (TEDI-London) is a new, degree-awarding UK Higher Education provider specialising in engineering education at undergraduate degree level. Established by three partners – Arizona State University, King’s College London and UNSW Sydney – TEDI-London was founded to address the critical shortage of engineers worldwide and enhance the quality of engineering graduates with the right mix of technical, social, and contextual skills to tackle global challenges. Targeting a more diverse cohort of students than traditional engineering degrees, TEDI-London aims to attract and empower socially aware and globally focussed engineers through its innovative, industry informed and project-based curriculum. From its founding in 2019, through to starting up with an inaugural cohort in September 2021 and welcoming the second cohort in September 2022, TEDI-London continues to push boundaries and challenge the norms in engineering education.
We are now looking for a new TEACHING FELLOW / SENIOR TEACHING FELLOW to join us at what is an exciting time on our journey as we begin to scale up and deliver our ambitious targets for growth. Reporting directly to the Director of Innovation and Academic Director, the TEACHING FELLOW / SENIOR TEACHING FELLOW will be a passionate engineering design educator who relishes the opportunity to join our learning and teaching function as an academic in delivering an innovative, relevant and inclusive curriculum.
In particular, we are looking for individuals who have qualifications and experience in global energy systems, low carbon technologies, sustainability and efficiency in the built environment, design and project supervision, and mentoring diverse cohorts of students.
