The School of Engineering is recruiting a Senior Teaching Fellow with subject expertise in construction and business management who will play a key role in the implementation and delivery of a new Civil Engineer Degree Apprenticeship programme, which is being launched in October 2018.

To be successful in this role you should have experience, ability and achievements in teaching in higher education or have equivalent industrial training as well as sufficient breadth and depth of specialist knowledge in civil or structural engineering to develop teaching, learning and assessments in the fields of construction and business management. You will have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to relate well to colleagues, employers, students and professional institutions and will have experience of working both independently and as part of a multi‐disciplinary team. 


It is essential that you have the ability to use a range of delivery techniques to engage the interest and enthusiasm of students and inspire effective learning. You will have gained familiarity with a variety of strategies to promote and assess learning and engaged in and have a commitment to continuous professional development. Experience of curriculum design or industrial knowledge which can inform an industrially‐led relevant curriculum would be an advantage. 


It is expected that successful performance and delivery on the Civil Engineer Degree Apprenticeship programme will develop the appointed candidate’s own academic career and profile as a university teaching focused.
