Visiting Lecturer Opportunity: 1st Year Research Methods

The Geography and Environmental Sciences department at the University of Hertfordshire is looking to urgently recruit a visiting lecturer to teach some sessions in a first year geography research methods class.

We are looking for someone who has a reasonable knowledge of statistics and can communicate this to first year students.

The classes run on Tuesdays from 2pm-5pm. This involves a one-hour lecture followed by a one hour practical (run twice). The group size is 45 students and a demonstrator is available to assist in the practical sessions. The lecturer would not need to be available every Tuesday as three sessions are delivered by UH staff – there is some flexibility over dates.

The lecturer who delivered the classes last year has left good quality teaching materials and class exercises that are available for use.

Rates of pay are subject to experience but would be in the region of £150.00 per half day. This post would suit graduates from a statistical background such as geography or environmental science. As this is a first year course we will consider recent graduates as understanding the needs of first year students is an important part of the job.

The University of Hertfordshire is located in Hatfield – a short train journey from Kings Cross and on many local bus routes from North London and Hertfordshire.
