Job Description

Do you have recent substantial experience in English for Academic Purposes? Are you passionate about teaching and delivering an exceptional student experience and would like to teach in both the UK and China (depending on circumstances)? Are you actively engaged in scholarship?

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 thirteen discipline-specific summer pre-sessional programmes, and growing numbers of LC staff seconded into academic departments during the academic year. With scholarship time a part of every Lecturer in EAP’s workload allocation, the LC boasts a large range of projects, with outputs including publications, whether in national and international journals or our own online journal, The Language Scholar. 

As Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), you will develop and deliver engaging teaching within our large portfolio of programmes in academic language, discourse, and literacy. You will have a scholarship profile which reflects your career stage. You will develop and deliver teaching as part of the South-West Jiatong University –Leeds Joint School in China on English Language and academic skills modules as well as teach on other Language Centre modules as appropriate.  Teaching will take place in the UK and on campus in China (with the possibility of working in other transnational contexts in the future) as well as online via University of Leeds platforms.   

You will need to meet the eligibility criteria to satisfy China’s working visa requirements and complete a satisfactory medical screening. 

As an international research-intensive university with a strong commitment to student education, we aim to create an inclusive environment that attracts, supports and retains the best students and staff from all backgrounds and from across the world. 

In line with this vision, the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures is committed to fostering a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity. We select candidates on the basis of merit and ability, and aspire to further diversify our Faculty community. We particularly welcome and encourage applications from candidates belonging to groups that have been under-represented in the University including, but not limited to: Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people; people who identify as LGBT+; and people with disabilities.
