The appointee will be required to undertake teaching duties, including both lecturing and project supervision, across a range of programmes offered by the School, as well as contributing directly to the Materials Science and Engineering modules for undergraduate BE and BSc students, and taught Masters (ME and MEngSc) students in MSE and related disciplines.
