Lecturer (Teaching & Scholarship) in English for Academic Purposes

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 overseas? Are you actively engaged in scholarship?

As a 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. 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. 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 boasts a large range of projects, with outputs including publications whether in national and international journals or our own online journal, The Language Scholar.

This role has a focus on transnational education, developing and delivering teaching on English Language and academic skills modules as part of a collaboration between Southwest Jiaotong University (SWJTU) and the University of Leeds which delivers undergraduate Engineering degrees. You will follow semester dates as set by the SWJTU- Leeds Joint School and spend two semesters on campus in Chengdu, China. You will spend the rest of your time in the UK at the University of Leeds campus, either working remotely on Joint School provision or supporting other Language Centre courses if workload and time permits.

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

About the employer

The University of Leeds is a public research university in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was established in 1874 as the Yorkshire College of Science. In 1884 it merged with the Leeds School of Medicine (established 1831) and was renamed Yorkshire College. It became part of the federal Victoria University in 1887, joining Owens College (which became the University of Manchester) and University College Liverpool (which became the University of Liverpool). In 1904 a royal charter was granted to the University of Leeds by King Edward VII.

The university has 36,330 students, the 5th largest university in the UK (out of 169). From 2006 to present, the university has consistently been ranked within the top 5 (alongside the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Nottingham and the University of Edinburgh) in the United Kingdom for the number of applications received. Leeds had an income of £789.6 million in 2019/20, of which £139.9 million was from research grants and contracts. The university has financial endowments of £82.1 million (2019–20), ranking outside the top ten British universities by financial endowment.

Notable alumni include current Leader of the Labour Party Keir Starmer, former Secretary of State Jack Straw, former co-chairman of the Conservative Party Sayeeda Warsi, Piers Sellers (NASA astronaut) and six Nobel laureates.
