The School of Experimental Psychology is seeking to appoint a full-time Senior Teaching Associate (equivalent to Lecturer) primarily to support the delivery of its Undergraduate programmes in a newly created post.  This is an exciting opportunity for someone who can work effectively in a cooperative and supportive environment with an interest in delivering high quality teaching of students, and in contributing to the School’s longer-term plans for enhancing the student experience.

The successful candidate will be taking a major role in the leading the delivery, assessment, and moderation of statistics and research methods for year 1 students, with a view to taking strategic oversight of research training at year 1. The postholder will be required to deliver (weekly during term time) lectures and laboratory sessions, alongside supporting students’ academic progress through feedback and advice clinics. The postholder will also have leadership of a team of postgraduates who help deliver the laboratory sessions. As well as providing research methods and statistics training, the postholder will support the delivery of other student support sessions at year 1 and some at MSc level.

Experience of teaching students in both large and small classes is essential, as is the ability to take a leading role in the provision of tutorial support. Demonstrated abilities to liaise effectively with academic and support staff and to work independently and organise one’s own schedule are also required.
