About the Role

Are you interested in teaching as a career? We have an exciting opportunity for a full time, fixed term (until June 2025) Specialist Junior Demonstrator based in our Chemistry Teaching Laboratories (CTL). This would be ideal if you are looking to investigate teaching as a career, either in the higher education sector, as a precursor to undertaking demonstrating duties during a Ph.D., or for those considering teaching in the secondary sector.

You will be part of a fantastic team supporting practical teaching at the University of Oxford. You will instruct, support, and supervise undergraduate students, as they learn experimental techniques and carry out a schedule of practical experiments. You will assist with technical support, practical education, and delivery of teaching and outreach activities.

The post will enable you to be involved in many operating parts of the teaching laboratories, from setting up a practical lab to demonstrating practical skills to undergraduates, health and safety issues, testing of new experiments, and outreach activities. An opportunity to enrol on a course, which will lead to an Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy upon successful completion, will be made available as part of this contract.

About You

You will have expertise in the general area of Chemistry and a good degree in Chemistry (or a very closely related subject). You will possess the ability to carry out basic practical chemistry technique and have experience of practical application of analytical instrumentation. However, more importantly, you must have a demonstrable willingness to learn unfamiliar techniques, work well as part of a team, and have a desire to teach undergraduates in the practical laboratory.

What We Offer

  • The University offers a wide range of benefits which include:
  • An excellent contributory pension scheme
  • 38 days annual leave
  • A comprehensive range of childcare services
  • Family leave schemes
  • Cycle loan scheme
  • Discounted bus travel and Season Ticket travel loans
  • The post is located at the Chemistry Teaching Laboratory, Mansfield Road, Oxford and is available from September 2024.

    Application Process

    You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application.

    Only applications received before midday on Friday 5th April 2024 can be considered. Interviews will be held shortly after the closing date.

    The Department of Chemistry is committed to equality and valuing diversity and welcomes applications from minority groups.
