Are you passionate about the future of Agriculture and able to pass on your knowledge onto our Higher Education students, in theoretical and practical situations?  Within this varied role, you will be required to design, implement, assess, support and evaluate learning and teaching at undergraduate and potentially postgraduate level. This is an exciting role that will work across related curriculum areas to help develop problem based learning and employability skills.

Your primary role will be to deliver high quality, innovative teaching on our undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Agriculture.

This role requires a broad understanding of the issues facing the industry with the ability to put theory into practice.  It would be an advantage to have either technical / industry experience, research experience  or  have knowledge of course design and delivery and both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The role holder will be expected to develop independent research, consultancy as well as have a genuine interest in multi-disciplinary teaching.

The ability to supervise and assess student projects and dissertations is an important component of this role. In addition, you will be expected to contribute to aspects of course leadership and development. The ability to work unsupervised and as part of a team is important, and up to date technical knowledge is essential.

Ideally you will have a good first degree or equivalent (E) or MSc (D) in a related discipline, or be able to demonstrate the equivalent through experience. You will hold a teaching qualification, or be willing to work towards this, along with having up to date technical knowledge.
