The School of Education is seeking to appoint an outstanding Senior Lecturer/Reader to make an active contribution in both research and teaching to our lively, collegiate and academically excellent Department. Able to teach across the broad field of education and an experienced doctoral supervisor, you will have a strong track record of national and international publications in the area of Higher Education, ideally with an international perspective.

You will play an active role in the School’s research community, taking a lead in doctoral supervision, developing grants, producing high quality publications and developing the school’s research culture through active participation in the work of one of the research centres. Teaching responsibilities for the role will be shaped according to best fit, but there are opportunities to teach across a wide range of Masters and Ed.D courses across our UK and Hong Kong programmes.
