Senior Lecturer in Education
Carnegie School of Education and Childhood
Ref: CAF298509A
Closing Date: 22 May 2017 (Midnight)

This is an exciting time to join the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University. As well as becoming one of the best performing providers of teacher education in the country, we’ve developed a reputation for innovation in our teaching, curriculum and partnership work. We’ve also created a strategy to embed research into everything we do but not just any research – we want to develop research that improves the life chances of children and young people, creating real impact in regional, national and international contexts. We’re also committed to embedding our practice into our extensive partnership, funding collaborative practitioner research in schools, evaluating private sector corporate and social responsibility projects and supporting social enterprises to build capacity.

As a result of growing student numbers, we’re seeking to appoint an inspirational and creative Senior Lecturer in Education. The successful candidate will teach on our exciting new two year accelerated BA in Primary Education as well as provide specialist expertise across our provision from undergraduate to doctoral level. You will have a first degree and a doctorate in a relevant area and be able to demonstrate an outstanding record of achievement in teaching as well as a track record of publications commensurate with a senior lectureship. You will also bring with you experience of working with external partners on collaborative, impactful projects.

We welcome applications from all individuals and particularly from black and minority ethnic candidates as members of these groups are currently under-represented at this level of post. Potential candidates are encouraged to make informal contact with the Head of Teacher Education, Dr Graham Parton:
