The University of Northampton is looking to recruit an innovative industry connected Lecturer/Senior Lecturer to deliver an industry focused dynamic new curriculum in Multimedia Sports Journalism. The successful applicant will bring industry experience as a practitioner in multi-platform journalism.
Contract type: Permanent (Part-time)
Location: University of Northampton, Avenue Campus, Waterside Campus
Salary: £33,518 – £47,722 per annum, pro rata
The University of Northampton are particularly interested to hear from industry practitioners with experience in written, broadcast or digital sports journalism. The successful applicant will have an undergraduate degree and/or a postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject and should be able to demonstrate current professional engagement with the sector.
The University of Northampton’s focus on a personalised learning experience for their students was recently cited by HEFCE as a reason for their Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. To augment this approach further the university have adopted an ‘Active Blended Learning’ (ABL) approach which places greater emphasis on student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge, understanding, independent learning and digital fluency. Successful candidates for academic posts at the University of Northampton will be expected to adopt ABL as standard in their teaching practice.
This is an exciting time to join our University as we prepare to relocate in September 2018 to a new purpose-built, town-centre campus designed to adapt to 21st century teaching and the ABL model. The university are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as they realise their ambition of transforming lives for the better and inspiring positive change.
The deadline for applications is the 26th August 2018.
