The Queen’s School of Engineering is seeking to appoint either a Teaching Fellow or Senior Teaching Fellow in Professional Engineering. The level of appointment will depend on skills and experience.

Based in the Department of Civil Engineering, the post will operate across all of the School’s degree programmes, and will work closely with its student body of ~2000 undergraduates and taught and research postgraduates. Our undergraduate programmes include 3- and 4-year BEng and MEng degrees in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering, as well as the 5-year industry-focused interdisciplinary programme in Engineering Design.

The post holder will be responsible for leading, coordinating and delivering all teaching related to Professional Engineering and engineering management across the School. They will be the Unit Director of the cross-programme Professional Engineering unit that all students from the School’s hugely successful undergraduate programmes follow throughout their first and second years. The role will also involve contributing relevant material and teaching on other units as required, including those for taught and research postgraduate programmes.

We are seeking an individual with in-depth subject knowledge of Professional Engineering and engineering management. Experience of teaching in the higher education sector, and industrial, commercial or practical expertise is required. The capability to enthusiastically and effectively impart knowledge to both undergraduate and postgraduate students is essential.
