Doctoral Teaching Assistantship (DTA) X 2


Plymouth Business School is offering funded Doctoral Teaching Assistantships. These positions consist of (i) a part time (0.5 FTE) teaching role at Grade 6; and (ii) a part-time PhD (0.5 FTE) offered for a 6 year period (covering 5 years of doctoral study plus 1 year writing up). Both teaching and PhD activities are undertaken concurrently. The School welcomes high quality research proposals for PhD study (which must be submitted with all applications), in any subject including: Business Management, Marketing and HR; Maritime Transport, Logistics and Supply Chain Management; Tourism and Events Management; and Finance and Economics.

In addition to the PhD Fee Scholarship, you will be trained to undertake teaching within a relevant subject area alongside our Undergraduate Programme team as well as participating in our research activities. You will undertake both your PhD and teaching in the same School. You will not be expected to teach more than the hours indicated as part of the fractional post you are applying for (factoring for 8 weeks holiday entitlement). Research training will be supported through the University's Doctoral College, the Faculty and the Schools' Research Training programmes, where you will be required to attend various 'research skills' modules.

You will pursue a PhD degree supported by world class research teams and gain professional teaching experience within one of the areas indicated by each of the Schools.

You are required to have a good honours degree (1st Class or an Upper 2:1) and likely a Masters degree in a relevant subject (completed with Distinction or a High Merit), and a strong wish to pursue a PhD with an original research project. You will also be interested in a career in the Higher Education Sector, specifically in teaching and research, and thus need to possess excellent communication and team working skills. You are highly encouraged to identify possible PhD supervisors in the areas of your research, and are invited to contact them in advance of making applications. Please see our Postgraduate Research page for PhD programmes, research areas and staff expertise.

Interviews for these posts are expected to take place beginning of January 2023. If you have any questions regarding the process of application then please contact Dr Lijun Tang (Plymouth Business School) [email protected]

Unfortunately we cannot provide sponsorship for these posts, candidates must therefore hold the right to work and study in the UK.
