The School of Education invites applications for the position of Lecturer in Adult Education (Research & Teaching Track) at University of Glasgow. The School of Education is one of the leading Schools of Education globally, ranked No 38 in the QS for Education and Training (2021). We are a large and dynamic unit which brings together academics and researchers with expertise across all sectors of education: formal and non-formal, pre-school through to higher, adult and community education.
We offer undergraduate, postgraduate, and CPD courses and you will actively contribute to delivering an excellent student experience through teaching, assessment and administration processes. We are committed to social justice in education and to education research and practice of the highest quality. We aspire to be a world leader in addressing the contemporary educational issues of our times, working collaboratively and across disciplines to making a difference for society’s most vulnerable and educationally disadvantaged.
The School prides itself on the effective integration of teaching, research, theory, policy and practice. The key feature of its research is its commitment to placing educational research as part of an interdisciplinary agenda to support the development of more equitable societies in the spirit of social justice. The School aims to contribute to better places locally, nationally and globally, providing a major source of research-informed evidence that contributes to positive economic and societal impact.
We are organised into four Research and Teaching Groups: Culture, Literacies, Inclusion & Pedagogy (CLIP); Educational Leadership & Policy (ELP); Pedagogy, Praxis & Faith (PPF); and People, Place & Social Change (PPSC). This post would be located in PPSC. The research of the RTGs currently crosses five thematic areas: migration and refugee education; collaborative schooling for change; ethics, religion and values in education; urban and place-based learning; and adult learning and youth transitions. Each highlights aspects of our commitment to social justice in education. We also of course host a dedicated Centre for Research and Development in Adult and Lifelong Learning within which the successful candidate's research would be located.
The School is situated within the College of Social Sciences (CoSS) and we welcome applications from candidates keen to contribute to interdisciplinary research, scholarship and knowledge exchange across CoSS and University.
Applications are invited from candidates who hold a Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework level 12 [PhD] or equivalent in related discipline with a growing reputation for research and scholarship within the subject area.
