The role of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Acting & Drama will be filled by a candidate with an established track record in a combination of publication, performance or production in the field of Educational Drama & Theatre. Experience in classroom drama teaching would be a distinct advantage. The role will involve studio and classroom teaching as well as tutorials and will be informed by a record of research or professional practice in the field of acting or theatre arts as well as the clear ability to link this to inform teaching/training.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to build on the successes of the Department in delivering Drama workshops around the UK and overseas. We offer a supportive working environment with excellent opportunities for research and teaching and a generous annual leave entitlement together with additional employee benefits.
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.
