Job Details

The International Education Institute (IE) at University of St Andrews is recruiting for a permanent Associate Lecturer in Academic English and TESOL (Education Focused). Please note that this job will require the post-holder to work on-site in St Andrews once national restrictions allow this – it will not be possible to work remotely in this role.

This post provides the opportunity to contribute across IE’s broad range of teaching activities. These include on-campus and distance-learning postgraduate TESOL programmes, International Foundation programmes, in-sessional Academic English Service provision, Academic English Pre-sessional Courses, and a variety of other summer short courses. There will also be opportunities to take on leadership roles in one or more of these areas. Please click on the “Further Particulars” link on the University job vacancies page for a full job description and person specification.

We are seeking practitioners who enjoy taking on new challenges, and who have a strong commitment to both their own and colleagues’ professional development. The successful applicant will join IE at an exciting time of change, as we continue to grow our postgraduate TESOL provision.

The intended start date for these positions is 1 July 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.

IE has developed a reputation within the UK and beyond as a centre of excellence for EAP (English for Academic Purposes) teaching, and we host an annual conference of international standing dedicated to this area of practice. Our dynamic and experienced teaching team, which includes recent recipients of McCall MacBain and University of St Andrews Teaching Excellence Awards, are involved in a wide range of educational activities, and we have a strong culture of professional development. While this is an education focused post, scholarly activity relevant to learning and teaching is supported financially and factored into workload modelling.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, people from the Black, Asian, Minority or Ethnic (BAME) community and other protected characteristics who are under-represented in Academic posts at the University.

The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall).More details can be found at
