Job Description

Do you have recent substantial experience in English for Academic Purposes (EAP)? Are you passionate about teaching and delivering an exceptional student experience? Are you actively engaged in scholarship in EAP, specifically in the field of transnational education and/ or ESAP in engineering or physical sciences? Are you committed to innovation in teaching and assessment?

As a Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), you will develop and deliver engaging teaching and assessment practices within our large portfolio of programmes in academic literacy, discourse and language. The Language Centre (LC) at the University of Leeds teaches students from all levels: Foundation through to PhD, both in pathway programmes for students prior to beginning their degree studies, and on-course programmes. Leeds is on the forefront of the trend for embedded EAP, including twelve discipline-specific summer pre-sessional programmes, and growing numbers of LC staff seconded into academic departments during the academic year. This role will involve working closely with colleagues in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (EPS), or other Faculties (as and when appropriate), developing and providing in-sessional teaching for students based both on campus at the University of Leeds and overseas.

You will have a scholarship profile which reflects your career stage. With scholarship time a part of every Lecturer in EAP’s workload allocation, the LC can now boast a large range of projects, with outputs including publications whether in national and international journals or our own online journal, The Language Scholar. Unique to Leeds is the degree of close working between language teaching professionals across all languages, with ample opportunity to work with colleagues in the wider School, and access to the resources and ambition of the largest school of languages in the UK.
