Details on


The School of Biological Sciences seeks to recruit a Part-time Graduate Teaching Assistant/PhD Trainee. The successful candidate will assist with teaching across the range of disciplines in the School, but particularly in areas of Zoology, such as animal behaviour, conservation biology, evolutionary biology, systematics, comparative physiology and animal ecology. Candidates should expect to provide assistance with student research projects, practical classes, lectures, field trips, setting & marking assignments and in providing advice & pastoral care to students. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to register for a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (PGCertHE).

Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to undertake a PhD or MRes project under the supervision of one of the current academic staff of the School, and will be required to obtain agreement of a principal supervisor over the topic and logistical arrangements for a project. School and individual staff research interests can be seen on our website. Tuition fees for both research degree and teaching qualification will be waived during the period of employment.

Applicants should have a good first degree in a biological-related subject and ideally some previous experience of teaching or demonstrating. Good interpersonal skills and an interest in teaching and student welfare are essential.

Overall, it is expected that approximately 56% of the postholder’s time will be made available for PhD-study, whilst 44% of the time will be for teaching and associated duties. However, the majority of the teaching and related activities will be concentrated into two semesters between late September and Early June.
