The University invites applications for the role of Lecturer in Polymer Sciences (Teaching and Scholarship) which is available from 1 April 2018, though a later starting date will be acceptable. This role spans scholarly activity, teaching and administration. The primary responsibility of the post is to contribute to the development and delivery of teaching in the School, engaging in scholarly activity and communication with students and external organisations in order to remain fully aware of developments in the field and current practice. The postholder will be actively engaged in the ongoing innovation and development of teaching methods and materials or the broader student experience with the aim of improving the education of students, their satisfaction with their education, and their ultimate employability.
The post of Lecturer is a responsible position in which the postholder is expected to balance the pressures of teaching and administrative demands and competing deadlines. The responsibilities listed are indicative of the general nature of responsibilities of the post rather than specific duties and do not limit the responsibilities that the postholder may be asked to assume by the Head of School or their Line Manager. For any individual the balance of responsibilities assigned may vary significantly, with the emphasis at any time being more towards delivery of teaching or towards other administration or management connected to taught programmes, students, their satisfaction and their employability.
The School is committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting women’s careers in STEMM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) in higher education. The School holds a Bronze Award for their commitment to the representation of women in the workplace and we particularly welcome applications from women for this post. Appointment will always be made on merit. For further information, please visit: http://www.materials.manchester.ac.uk/about-us/athena-swan/
