    The University of Northampton is seeking an inspirational lecturer to join a focused and collegiate team, with an embedded culture of student-focused teaching and high impact research.

    The post would suit an individual with expertise and experience in sport coaching, performance analysis, skill acquisition and motor control. Applications from individuals with an interest in the identification and development of youth talent in sport and/or esports would be welcomed.

You will be highly disciplined, organised, supportive, and able to work collegiately within a team. A successful track record of research publications, successful grant applications, and/or generation of commercial income, would be welcomed.

    About Us

    Come to the University of Northampton and you will see that we do things a bit differently.

    We are one of the youngest universities in the UK but we are already leading the way in adding value to society, which we call social impact. We have won multiple awards for our work in this area, among others, but what matters the most to us is ensuring that our students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark on the world too. That's why we were the first university in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012.

    We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. This has led us to build a whole new University from the ground up that is designed to reflect the way that students actually learn rather than the way they are expected to learn. Waterside Campus opened in September 2018.

    Our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of all that we do.

    Right to Work

    All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview.
