Applications are invited for the position of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Sport, Coaching & Physical Education.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic department that delivers a diverse range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, has a thriving postgraduate research community and works closely with the Institute of Sport and Physical Activity Research (ISPAR).

We are particularly interested in individuals with experience in both the education and sport sectors promoting sport and physical activity through improving pedagogy.
