Middlesex University has a reputation for high quality academic provision, is strongly research-engaged, and has a practical and innovative approach to working with business. We teach 40,000 students on Middlesex courses at our campuses in London, Dubai, Mauritius and Malta and with prestigious academic partners across the world.  Middlesex brings related subjects together into three faculties, based at our flagship London campus; Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries, Faculty of Professional & Social Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology.

The Faculty of Science and Technology brings together leading academics from a wide variety of backgrounds working together to challenge thinking and formulate approaches to science, engineering, design, mathematics and analysis that are fit for purpose in our modern world.  We are also committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting women’s careers in STEMM subjects in higher education.

The Department of Design Engineering and Mathematics has a teaching portfolio that includes Aviation, Product Design, Architectural Technology, Design Engineering (Electronics, Mechatronics and Robotics), Building Information Modelling and Mathematics. Research in the department focuses on Engineering, Modelling and Simulation, Robotics (industrial, social, medical) and Creative Technologies.

We are looking to recruit two full time Lecturer/Senior Lecturers in Professional Practice who can offer a significant contribution to delivering and developing the university’s expanding portfolio of Professional Aviation Pilot Practice programmes. We are seeking applications from candidates with relevant academic and professional qualifications who can strengthen the university’s academic profile and enhance teaching, learning and research in practice and work based learning. Experience of working in or with the aviation sector will be an advantage although this is not essential. Candidates with experience of working in other areas of professional practice and work based higher education with an interest in developing their own practice in the aviation sector are also encouraged to apply. Experience or knowledge of working with and supporting students through a VLE will also be an advantage.

These roles will be held by colleagues who welcome innovation and teamwork and who can combine excellent teaching, learning, research and knowledge transfer with a demonstrable commitment to supporting and developing work-based, professional and reflective practice. Appointments will be made according to qualifications and experience.
Informal enquiries should be made to Mick Betts, Director of Aviation Programmes m.betts@mdx.ac.uk 020 8411 6643.
