We are looking for a full-time, without term Froebel Professor in Early Childhood Studies (ECS) to join the School of Education.  We would like to invite applications from candidates with world-leading research track record and teaching interest in any aspect of ECS, complementary to those of staff in our multidisciplinary ECS team and ECS research centre.  Roehampton has an international reputation for its work in ECS built on the legacy of Froebel and Frobelian principles.  We are seeking applications from highly motivated and high achieving candidates who will work with colleagues to further develop the reputation of our ECS research centre to gain world-leading status.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe. 

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas. ‘In the Complete University Guide 2018, Roehampton is the highest-ranked modern university in London.

Modern, or new, universities are defined as those granted university status post-1992. Complete University Guide does not itself define modern universities and does not produce a separate league table in which these are ranked.’

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working.
