Based within the School of Natural Sciences, you will contribute to teaching in the field of Global Tectonics. You will have a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and will teach tectonics and large-scale structural geology within the framework of Birkbeck’s B.Sc. Degree in Geology and associated Certificate courses. This is for a single Level 5 module, taught in the autumn, with an early summer examination. The work would require 36 contact hours of teaching (11 lectures plus revision session, each 6-9 pm) and a revision session as well as examination setting and marking. Teaching material, which you could use with little change or modify it as you like, already exists and teaching will be via full blended teaching with live lectures and practicals, livestreaming, recorded lectures and additional online resources.
You will have a PhD in Earth Science or a related discipline. You will have demonstrated teaching experience at undergraduate level in the field of structural geology and global tectonics.
Practical experience and research in the general field of structural geology is desirable, as is experience with diverse teaching styles such as blended learning.
Payment is based on an hourly rate depending on length of continuous service with the College (starting rate £61.68 per hour inclusive of pro-rata London Allowance and holiday pay) for contact hours worked. This hourly rate is based on the starting point of Grade 7 and is inclusive of a ‘Duties Related to Teaching Multiplier’ which covers preparation, teaching, administration, assessment marking and other examining duties in connection with the course.
