Senior Lecturer (Intervention for Success Project) (Fixed Term)

Lincoln Higher Education Research Institute

Location:  Brayford
Salary:   From £37,075 per annum
This post is fixed term until 31st December 2018
Closing Date:   Wednesday 15 March 2017
Interview Date:   Monday 20 March 2017
Reference:  HERI002

We are seeking an enthusiastic and committed Senior Lecturer to lead on the University of Lincoln’s contribution to the ‘Intervention for Success’ project. This project is a HEFCE funded project in collaboration with Huddersfield University (Lead), Coventry University and Manchester Metropolitan University; the Lincoln contribution is hosted in the Lincoln Higher Education Research Institute. 
 
This is a full-time, fixed term post through to December 2018, which is the end of the funded project. One of the drivers behind this work nationally, is the 2015 HEFCE report ‘Causes of Differences in Student Outcomes’ http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/rereports/Year/2015/diffout/Title,104725,en.html which identifies engagement as a critical factor in reducing differential outcomes for students and notes that not all students have the social and cultural capital needed to engage readily or ask for support. The ‘Intervention for Success’ project will draw on existing data analytics, to identify students at risk of withdrawal and underachievement and offer solutions in the form of appropriate, high quality academic interventions to ensure those students continue and succeed. Bringing together and enhancing current monitoring and intervention processes, the project will identify need and deliver effective interventions. 
 
The role of the personal tutor is central to this work, in particular one of the main responsibilities of the post holder will be to work with students and personal tutors to develop an on-line academic development programme with associated interactive materials. This will include tools and guidance for academic interventions (as opposed to broader student services interventions) to ensure that all students are able to make the academic progress they need, catch up when they have fallen behind and grasp complex concepts that may have eluded them; core to the programme will be ‘universal design for learning’ techniques. The post-holder will work closely with, and be informed by, other aspects of the project work in the partner institutions.
 
This post is based within the Lincoln Higher Education Research Institute at the University of Lincoln. The Institute provides a platform for excellent and useful research and developments in higher education, developing expertise and impact through its work with researchers locally, nationally and internationally. The post holder will have opportunities to participate in the wider endeavours of the Institute. This post offers an outstanding opportunity for a committed teacher to gain valuable experience in collaborative, externally funded research whilst developing their career in an environment that is academically stimulating. 
 
This full-time post will be offered on a fixed-term contract to December 2018. An internal secondment arrangement would be considered.
 
Informal enquires can be addressed to Dr. Karin Crawford kcrawford@lincoln.ac.uk
