Detail information about job Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Sport Development. Terms and conditions vacancy

The Faculty of Health and Society is seeking to appoint a self-motivated Lecturer with a social science background to contribute to the delivery, assessment, evaluation, curriculum development and associated administration of undergraduate programmes including BA (Hons) Sport Development and Physical Education and BA (Hons) Sports Studies in the Subject Group of Sport, Exercise and Life Sciences.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an experienced and supportive team of social science, exercise science and sport psychology educators who are committed to raising standards in the study of sport. We welcome applications from people with expertise in the area of sport development in the UK that is drawn from a social science perspective. You will have a track record of undergraduate teaching in a Higher Education institute in this subject area and experience of facilitating technology enhanced learning. You will contribute to teaching in sport development at undergraduate levels and also be involved in the work based learning elements of the programme. Therefore, experience in managing student work placements and an ability to develop strong links with local sport organisations is desirable; a passion for fostering student employability is crucial. This post will expect you to demonstrate both excellent communication and organisational skills, and you should have a genuine commitment to continually improving the student experience.

You will have a minimum of a good honours degree or equivalent and at least a Master’s degree in a subject related area. Doctoral degrees are desirable; however, the willingness to formulate and undertake research, enterprise or consultancy in a subject related to the role is essential. The successful candidate for this post will be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) Check. 

Interview Date: Monday 25 September 2017

This post is subject to a background disclosure check by the Disclosure and Barring Service before any appointment can be confirmed.

The University of Northampton’s focus on a personalised learning experience for our students was recently cited by HEFCE as a reason for our Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. To augment this approach further we have adopted an ‘Active Blended Learning’ (ABL) approach which places greater emphasis on student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge, understanding, independent learning and digital fluency. Successful candidates for academic posts at the University of Northampton will be expected to adopt ABL as standard in their teaching practice.

This is an exciting time to join our University as we prepare to relocate in September 2018 to a new purpose-built, town-centre campus designed to adapt to 21st century teaching and the ABL model. We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of transforming lives for the better and inspiring positive change.

All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview. 

The University of Northampton as an employer strives to achieve diversity among its staff which reflects the communities it serves.
