Applicants are required to submit a current CV and covering letter outlining how their qualifications and experience meet the Person Specification in the Job Description below

The University of Hull Business School is seeking to appoint an academic to lead the Delivering People Analytics: predictive modelling, text mining and data visualisation module, which will teach students the steps to be taken to deliver a people analytics project efficiently and effectively. It is focused on more practical and technical aspects concerning the choice of variables to be investigated and what methods, instruments and algorithms should be selected to deliver a PA project.

The University delivers an online portfolio of Master's degree programmes under the brand name Hull Online. These programmes are delivered in association with a collaborative partner, Cambridge Education Group Digital (CEGD), who assists with recruitment, marketing, course design and course build.

There are currently eight programmes in the online portfolio and the University has ambitious plans to add several more.

All programmes are taught on a flexible, part-time basis over two years within a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Students can study the same degree as they would on campus without interrupting income and career progression.

Programmes are delivered wholly online with students having the option of attending annual/ biannual face-to-face events either at the University campus or at industry events in Europe.

The post-holder will initially develop content for the module (0.4 FTE for 6 months) and then act as module leader when the module is live in delivery (0.2 FTE once a year for 15 weeks, May to August)

Design and development of the academic content will be undertaken in partnership with a Learning Designer (LD) from CEG to translate academic material into the Canvas VLE.

The Module Leader, who does not have to be based in Hull, will have overall responsibility for the delivery and academic direction of the module, managing Online Tutors who do the day-to-day teaching of the course. Tutors can be located anywhere in the world.

Module leading will involve high-level academic input to steer the module through its course, intervening to clarify major points, requesting any required adjustments to course content within the VLE and summarising topics. It will also involve ensuring that Online Tutors grade work (as first marker) in a timely manner and the module leader then will second mark or moderate assessments, in accordance with University guidelines.

The successful candidate will demonstrate:

  • A PhD in a related area
  • Excellence in teaching at Master's level or above from peer review, from student assessment/feedback, from examination results, from external examiner reports and from teaching awards
  • To discuss this role informally, please contact Dr Igor Menezes, MSc People Analytics Programme Director,
