Teaching Fellowship at University of St Andrews

Applications are invited for a teaching fellow in the School of Physics and Astronomy.  In the first instance, this is a fixed term contract to June 2016.  Teaching Fellows in the School are full members of the teaching team, and play an important part in the learning experience of our students.  We require the teaching fellow to deliver an appropriate mix of lectures, tutorials, and laboratory instruction, and in some of these cases to take the lead in developing the material and the associated curriculum and assessment.  The fellow will deliver high quality, innovative teaching to our well-qualified undergraduate population, with a range potentially from entrant students to final-year MPhys.  

Applicants should have ideally have previous lecturing and tutorial experience at undergraduate level and a proven ability to deliver a wide range of core physics courses in a classroom, laboratory and small-group tutorial environment, including those with a high theoretical content. The applicants should possess a PhD in physics and ideally should be able to demonstrate a previous commitment to the development of innovative material for learning and teaching and/or have experience of contributing to pedagogical studies in the physical sciences.
