Have you noticed that the university is currently advertising two Teaching Fellow posts based within the Faculty of Medical Sciences? Many researchers are aspiring for a permanent academic post but recognise how competitive this route is. Others are particularly motivated by the opportunity to teach and this can be their main attraction to academic roles. For many, a Teaching Fellow role would be their ideal job with the emphasis being on teaching their subject and it may also offer that sought after permanent contract. There is often a research element to the role – sometimes subject based, sometimes focusing on pedagogy – so if you love research you don’t have to leave it behind!
To learn more about what these roles involve have a look at the job descriptions of the Teaching Fellow and Senior Teaching Fellow opportunities on the university job vacancies website.
