Description :

Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out effective teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level?  Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?  Would you like to join and contribute to the learning and teaching environment of the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds?

As a Teaching Fellow in Contemporary Performance Practice you will play a full role in teaching; including planning, delivery and assessment and undertake appropriate administrative and quality assurance responsibilities commensurate with the level and nature of the post. You will take the responsibility for managing modules as well as working as part of a teaching team on other modules. You will contribute to the development of the School’s curriculum portfolio in line with the School strategy. You will serve as a personal tutor and be able and willing to support undergraduates effectively throughout their time at University. You will also be developing a track record in high quality teaching and be engaged in scholarship that supports the development of your work as a teacher.

With a PhD in a field related to Contemporary Performance Practice, or a PhD award pending (that is submitted, examined and awarded subject to minor corrections) you will have relevant teaching experience and proven knowledge and understanding of relevant performance theory.  You will also have the ability to apply theory to practice in the context of the arts and cultural/creative industries.

We welcome applications from everyone but, as members of ethnic minority groups have been traditionally underrepresented in the field, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
