Research-led teaching, good communication skills, and an ability to work productively as part of a friendly, team-oriented department are essential for this position.

The teaching commitment, 0.2 FTE, will be delivered during the University term, in addition to marking assessments and MA supervision during the whole of the period of the contract.  The schedule will be discussed further at interview
