Assistant Professor in Student Success (DCAD_01)

Durham University
United Kingdom
Competitive Salary
Start date
Sep 11, 2023

Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD) at Durham University seeks to appoint two talented individuals to the role of Assistant Professor in Student Success. These roles will support the delivery of EAP/ academic language and literacy across our student-facing provision. This includes Academic Skills Centre (ASC), Pre-sessional (undergraduate, taught postgraduate and research postgraduate) and related provision.

The ASC offers development opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate students with a particular focus on international students and students from non-traditional backgrounds. The new posts will deliver provision focusing on academic writing, academic skills and academic English language. Provision is delivered via central classes, drop-ins, tutorials, online resources and through work with academic departments. Pre-sessional provision offers intensive academic language and literacy preparation for incoming international students who have narrowly missed their language condition. We currently offer 20-, 10- and 6-week courses. We also work with external partners to offer short courses and overseas pre-sessional provision.

We welcome applications from those with teaching and scholarship interests in the broad field of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and/or academic language and literacies in a higher education context and we are particularly eager to hear from applicants with experience of developing high-quality materials/learning resources in range of formats (including online), the ability to collaborate effectively with a range of stakeholders including (but not limited to) academic departments, the Library and Disability Support and experience of co-ordination on large/complex programmes.
