Teaching Fellow in Science
University of Leeds
United Kingdom

Teaching Fellow (Science Foundation Year - Biology / General Science)

Do you have significant teaching experience in biology and/or general science? Do you have exceptional skills in enabling students from diverse backgrounds to develop their capability for successful university-level study? Are you able to demonstrate an aptitude for using creative pedagogy and digital technologies to support academic development?

The Lifelong Learning Centre (LLC) works with mature and part-time undergraduate and foundation-year learners across the University, especially where this enables participation of people from groups that are under-represented in higher education. The science foundation year programmes provide students with a stimulating and supportive environment in which to acquire knowledge and skills for progression to a range of science degrees across the University. They reflect a strong emphasis on widening participation, both for adult and younger students, and also make provision for those who wish to pursue a science degree but lack prerequisite subjects at A-level. Foundation year programmes are designed to help students acquire and apply relevant practical and scientific academic knowledge. You will also contribute to the broader academic and pastoral support of students from pre-entry and admissions through to graduation.

Modules in this programme include physics, chemistry and biology and we have two roles available. We are looking for someone to lead biology related modules and someone to teach on a range of modules which will include some biology and general science content. We would also be interested in candidates with the capacity to teach more than one discipline to build a supportive team, who focus on team goals and the student experience.
