Are you an engineer with a strong background in electronic, electrical or mechatronic engineering and an interest in teaching engineering design? We have an opportunity within our department to provide leadership and teaching contributions on our degree programmes.

About the role:

You will provide teaching leadership of engineering design throughout our degree programmes and contribute to the development and delivery of teaching, ranging from fundamental electronic and electrical engineering material to advanced modules in your area of expertise. A major part of this role is to coordinate and support the full-time Group Design and Business Project (GDBP), which occupies the entire second semester of year 3 of our MEng programmes. In the GDBP, students learn to integrate business tools and methods in large technical design and development projects to solve problems, often set by industry.

You are expected to design and deliver high quality teaching of undergraduate and/or taught postgraduate modules which is informed by significant experience gained via practice, research/study and teaching experience. The role will include:

  • preparation of teaching material; delivery of lectures, seminars, tutorials and group work 
  • assessment and marking of coursework and dissertations
  • providing advice and support to students
  • pastoral care of students, in line with Department and University policy
  • supervision of undergraduate or taught postgraduate student projects
  • teaching-related management and administration duties
  • effective contribution to University wide developments and innovation in the design and delivery of teaching.

Whilst it is expected that teaching will be informed by research/professional expertise, there is no research component to this role. 

About you:

Our ideal applicant will have:

  • a strong engineering background, with a particular interest in design, gained through academic or industry experience
  • teaching experience or the desire to develop such, based on professional practice
  • excellent communication, organisational and administrative skills
  • the ability to form positive working relationships and to work in teams

 About us:

The Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering is a successful and expanding department with over 30 academic staff. In addition to a range of electrical and electronic engineering programmes, our undergraduate degrees include Integrated Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (a joint programme with Department of Mechanical Engineering) and Robotics Engineering. Support towards obtaining a higher education teaching qualification is provided by the Pathway to HEA Fellowship programme for new lecturers. 

The Department holds a Bronze Award for the Athena SWAN scheme, which promotes gender equality among all disciplines. We particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups.

In addition to a full CV, applicants must provide a separate teaching statement of up to 4 pages to cover their teaching background and/or relevant industrial design experience. Prior to drawing up a shortlist, applicants may be invited to give an online presentation on their teaching interests.

For informal enquires please contact Professor Adrian Evans, Head of Department (a.n.evans@bath.ac.uk) or Dr Despina Moschou, Chair of Department Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Team (d.moschou@bath.ac.uk).
