*Funding is available for a full time position however applications are encouraged for part-time and/or job share arrangements – this opportunity is also open to talented lecturers looking to develop academic leadership in teaching*

We are seeking an enthusiastic and committed Senior Lecturer(s) to join the Lincoln Higher Education Research Institution 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 unique and exciting opportunity for any academic colleague who may be interested in expanding beyond their dedicated discipline to explore the pedagogical impact of academic interventions to enhance the academic success of students from a range of diverse and socio-economic backgrounds.  The 2015 HEFCE report ‘Causes of Differences in Student Outcomes’ http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/rereports/Year/2015/diffout/Title,104725,en.html forms a key driver for this work.

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(s) 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(s) will work closely with, and be informed by, other aspects of the project work in the partner institutions.

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(s) will have opportunities to participate in the wider endeavours of the Institute, along with an outstanding opportunity to gain valuable experience in collaborative, externally funded research whilst developing their career in an environment that is academically stimulating. 

An internal secondment arrangement whether full time or part time would be considered.

Informal enquires can be addressed to Dr. Karin Crawford kcrawford@lincoln.ac.uk
