The Natural Sciences programme provides students with an education spanning different scientific disciplines. Currently, the programmes offered provide opportunities for students to select units from different departments, including those external to the Faculty, and the majority of student programmes involve two academic disciplines. For more details please see 

Personal tutoring is similarly distributed across the academic departments in the Faculty and so this position provides the opportunity to work with a diverse group of colleagues. At its heart, the Senior tutor role involves coordination and communication about the pastoral tutoring system and monitoring the system effectiveness, sharing good practice. 

As part of the NSS Action Plan, a review of the personal tutoring system for Natural Sciences is planned for Semester 2 this academic year. It will provide the post-holder with opportunities to lead on this initiative, fully supported by the Head and the two DoS. Moreover, this will fit into the institutional focus on Student Experience and so will allow the post-holder to contribute to and influence the work being undertaken at that level.

The role is designated 30 hours in the WAMS workload model.

You should be keen to work as a key team member within Natural Sciences as well as liaising with colleagues from other academic departments and professional services and they will be committed to interdisciplinary science education. 

We are seeking to recruit to this post from February 2020 for a period of 3 years (renewable).

Applications should provide an outline of your relevant experience for the role (max 250 words) and your aspirations for the role (max 250 words). 

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Dr Jane White (, Head of Natural Sciences.
