CU Coventry is significantly investing in our teaching and learning strategy and in substantial campus estates development. We have recently been ranked as 12th UK University according to the Guardian University Guide 2018, our highest ever position.

The School of Engineering and Digital Technologies has an outstanding reputation for teaching and student satisfaction. We have also recently been awarded ‘Gold’ status under the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework. We are firmly focused on preparing students for successful careers, in the context of industry’s current and future demands.

We require a new full time, permanent member of staff with expertise in Engineering. The team is substantial, so a variety of specialisms would be acceptable, although expertise in robotics, embedded systems, CAD or Industry 4.0 are desirable.

Applicants should have a minimum of a Master’s Degree or equivalent industrial experience in engineering. Experience of teaching and supervising student project work would be essential as would possession of a recognised teaching qualification (or willingness to gain one). Experience of module management would be desirable.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated self-starter and able to communicate with students, tutors and academics at all levels.

Duties include teaching on and preparing materials for a range of undergraduate and/or professional programmes. Tutors are sought for courses that run during the day, evenings and/or at weekends through face-to-face (or potentially) online teaching environments. You will also provide support to senior academics for module delivery and assessment as well as Outreach activities and Open Days.

The ambition to succeed in a competitive arena is essential with a focus on creating an outstanding academic student experience.
