The Department of Biology and Biochemistry is seeking to appoint a part-time (0.4FTE) Lecturer (Teaching) in Plant Biology on a temporary basis (from October 2021 - June 2022) to deliver exceptional teaching and assessment across a range of undergraduate units with an emphasis on plant biology.

Our teaching consistently receives very high student satisfaction scores in the National Student Survey (NSS). The successful applicant will have a PhD in plant biology (biochemistry or neuroscience), or in a related subject area.

You will be expected to prepare and deliver teaching material, assessment and marking of course work in the plant sciences, and supervision of laboratory classes will be required.
