The School of Education seeks to appoint an exceptional teacher and scholar as an Associate Professor (Teaching). We welcome applications from well qualified and experienced primary educators with a subject specialism in English.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a significant contribution to the development of the School of Education’s teaching and curriculum and the successful candidate will join the primary teaching team, rated as Outstanding by Ofsted in 2011 and 2013, along with our other ITE programmes. The person appointed will also be expected to have administrative experience.

The post will involve a significant teaching load, including during the summer period.

Candidates will be expected to engage in scholarship and research related to pedagogy, noting that any other independent research (beyond pedagogy) is not part of this post. The appointment will be on the University’s ‘Teaching Track’ career path, which provides clearly defined opportunities for progression against defined criteria.

Successful applicants will, ideally, be in post by September 2017.
