Perth College UHI is one of Scotland’s leading Colleges of Further and Higher Education, and a large partner in Scotland’s newest University, the University of the Highlands and Islands.

We are looking for an experienced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer/Lecturer to join our growing team to support the teaching of its Engineering programmes, from HNC to degree level.

The campus is well resourced to deliver a first-class learning experience with a well-balanced mix of lecture theatres, classrooms, laboratories and training workshops.

As a lecturer you will contribute to shaping the future of the next generation of engineers through teaching and other scholarly activities such as research and consultancy.  Within your specialisation, you will be responsible for: preparing materials for learning, teaching and assessment; for the teaching of theory and practical aspects; supervising student project work; and contributing to the development of the UHI programmes in engineering. The post will also involve the development and delivery (including in-country) of our international programmes such as those we have in collaboration with universities across the world.

Opportunities for personal development are available through UHI and at other universities.
