Director of International Teaching Partnerships

The PVC International, Professor Steve Bradley, has been seeking to organise our international teaching partnerships so that there is a clear focus for partnership activity. He plans to have a member of LU staff actually in each partner institution.

In order to allow clear relationships with partners to be built up a new post has been established in the Faculty - a post of Director of International Teaching Partnerships. The Director will work closely with the associate deans for UG and PG, who are responsible for the quality assurance of faculty programmes, and with the PVC International, and will be the point of contact for faculty partnership activity. Applications are invited from members of academic staff who are interested in the development of teaching partnerships overseas and are prepared to travel.

Informal conversations about the post can be held with Mary Smyth and Jane Taylor (for either post), and with Professor Steve Bradley for the International Director post.

For both positions, the deadline for applications is Friday 9 September. Interviews will be held in the week beginning Monday 19 September.
