The Role 

SCE is looking for a ‘talent bank’ of HPLs to help deliver our courses.  We are looking for experienced academic who could help with general course delivery, project supervision and marking of assessments, especially for some of our very large cohorts.  Being part of our talent bank does not automatically represent a promise of work but is to gather a cohort of potential helpers across the whole range of our courses. Although we are looking for support in many areas, we would strongly welcome applicants with some specialist skills:  In computer Science were are looking for academics or practitioners with experience in Cyber Security.  In Engineering and the Built Environment we are looking for academics or practitioners in Quantity and Building surveying.

The candidate should have knowledge of current Information to contribute to our both undergraduate and postgraduate course. Evidence of teaching experience and an established research track record, or equivalent industrial experience, with appropriate outputs in a discipline relevant to the subject are also required. The appointee will contribute to research, enterprise development and commercial training in appropriate sub-discipline(s) within the Information Technology field, as well as community engagement activities.

Applicants do not have to hold a PhD in a relevant field but  demonstrable track record of teaching experience within the Higher Education sector is looked for.  Equally, industrial practitioners are also encouraged to apply.

In addition to the online application form, you should submit a full academic CV.
