University of Southampton

We are looking to appoint a full time Teaching Fellow in Audiology.

You will be passionate about inspiring the next generation of Audiologists by delivering innovative and engaging teaching.

The role will involve supporting teaching activities on the BSc and MSc in Audiology at the University of Southampton, for example through delivering modules, engaging in clinical skills teaching, supporting and assessing students on clinical placement and supervising students carrying out research projects.

The exact teaching requirement could be tailored to the strengths of a successful candidate. There can also be opportunities to develop research, clinical or consultancy activities depending on an individual’s strengths/goals and we aim to support staff in career development more generally.

Clinical registration to work in the UK in Audiology is essential to the post (for example RCCP, AHS or HCPC). Teaching experience is desirable, as is a teaching qualification such as the post-graduate certificate of Academic Practice, although training towards a teaching qualification could be part of the role. Some research experience is desirable, as it would help with supporting students carrying out research projects, but it is not essential

Please include a Curriculum Vitae and a one-page teaching statement highlighting the areas of research interest and ideas for innovation in education.

For informal enquiries, please contact Head of Department, Prof. Stefan Bleeck, bleeck@soton.ac.uk
