At Bournemouth University our vision is to create the most stimulating, challenging and rewarding university experience in a world-class learning community by sharing our unique fusion of excellent education, research and professional practice and inspiring our students, graduates and staff to enrich the world.
We were the first university to be commended by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) for the quality of student learning opportunities and in 2012 we won the Queens Anniversary Award for Higher Education. We are currently changing the face of the university through our new, transformational estates programme with a stunning series of iconic new buildings, and we are continuing to invest further in our intellectual capital by seeking to appoint high calibre teams and individuals to our award-winning Faculties.
The Department of Sport & Physical Activity, located in the Faculty of Management at Bournemouth University, is a new Department, signalling investment and growth, and that builds upon Bournemouth’s existing excellence and global reputation for combining research, professional practice and education.
As a Senior Lecturer (Academic) or Lecturer (Academic) in Sport and Physical Activity, you will be committed to excellence in practice, teaching and research. Enthusiastic about student-centred pedagogy, you will contribute to education delivery, including programme management as required, across the range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. You will also make a significant contribution to employability, and professional engagement with organisations, at a regional, national and international level.
You will be expected to strengthen the Department’s position as a high-level research institution in joining an active and productive group of scholars whose work coalesces around the interdisciplinary understanding of sport and physical activity. You will also engage in attracting external grant funding, knowledge transfer, continuous professional development, consultancy and other forms of external engagement and professional practice, as appropriate.
We would welcome applications from a range of disciplines spanning sport, physical activity, exercise, and health. It would be an advantage if you can demonstrate an affinity between your own research programme, research in the Department, cross-Faculty research themes and demonstrate links across the University.
You will be qualified to Doctorate level or be able to demonstrate the ability to create and disseminate knowledge at an equivalent level and the capability to convert this knowledge into a doctorate in a maximum of 3-5 years from the date of appointment. You will be research active and committed to a culture of academic excellence and continuous improvement.
