We are looking for a Teaching Fellow in Mathematics to join the University of Southampton’s Science Foundation Year Programme.  Be part of a multidisciplinary team delivering an engaging programme which gives students the knowledge to meet the challenges of our science degree courses. The year provides a rapid introduction to biology, chemistry and mathematics, which prepares students for their chosen undergraduate degree.

Join the University of Southampton, an institution in the top one per cent of world universities and one of the UK’s top 15 research-intensive universities.  We have an international reputation for research, teaching and enterprise activities.

The University’s Science Foundation Year Programme is delivered by a team with expertise in a range of disciplines from across the University.  It is designed to provide students with a route to a science degree if they do not have the traditional entry qualifications. This programme suits those studying for A levels in subjects different from those normally required for these degrees. It also attracts mature applicants, with skills and experience from employment and international students from countries where the education system is different from the British A level system.

You will deliver teaching in Mathematics and skills provision to Science Foundation Year undergraduate students, contribute to the design and content of taught programmes and to the development and implementation of new approaches to the delivery of assessment and feedback to ensure a high quality learning experience for students.  You will also participate in administration in relation to educational activities and to engage in educational development activities.

To succeed in this role you will need a detailed knowledge of Mathematics at A-level or equivalent standard gained through a first degree in Mathematics or another numerate discipline.  You will have a recognised teaching qualification and experience of teaching A-level and GCSE Mathematics and designing forms of assessment. You will be an effective communicator who can deliver engaging, motivating lectures both on your own course units as well as contributing to team-taught units.  You will be able to support students in their learning and pastorally.
