Teaching Associate/Assistant - Engineering Design (414783)
 

Salary: £33,309 - £40,927 per annum

FTE: 1
Term: Fixed for 36 months

Closing Date: 15 December 2021

 

The Department of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management (DMEM), Faculty of Engineering, University of Strathclyde, wishes to appoint two highly motivated individuals to new and exciting roles of Teaching Associates/Assistants: One in Engineering Design and one in Engineering Management. The position in Engineering Design is for 3 years and includes support duties for the Head of Department. The position in Engineering Management is for one year. Whether Teaching Associate (Grade 7) or Teaching Assistant (Grade 6) will depend on experience.  

 

You will be fluent in either engineering design or engineering management. This includes, but not limited to, engineering design methods and processes, digital design, mechatronic design, mechanical component and system design, design for manufacturing processes, engineering project management, management of design and engineering innovation, strategy and management of technology development, and systems engineering. It might well be that you are versed in both disciplines and are able to provide expertise across the intersection of engineering design and management. In any case, please indicate clearly which are your strengths.  

 

In these roles, you will deliver teaching, teaching support and other activities to ensure that a world-class student experience is enabled for undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, through the delivery of lectures, other classes, workshops, tutorials and project supervision. You will also be expected to undertake scholarly and research activities aligned with teaching activities. You will be an ambassador of our Department, the Faculty of Engineering, and Strathclyde, and be responsible for developing our Department’s reputation in its teaching activities both internal and external to our University.  

 

You will work as part of a team specifically focused on developing our students’ core professional engineering skills of design, experimentation, engineering management and the ability to apply fundamental engineering principles to real-world engineering problems. The role requires delivery of a variety of types of teaching within the core modules of our established portfolio of integrated engineering programmes. The key focus of the role is delivering the very best student experience and giving our graduates industrially-relevant engineering skills. You will be expected to teach both on-campus and online using the full range of university digital systems and tools.  

 

The Department of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management (DMEM) provides a unique offering combining end-to-end multidisciplinary expertise from creative design, through to engineering design, manufacturing and engineering management of the entire system. DMEM also houses the UK’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC), which is located off-campus at a dedicated site just outside Glasgow and is part of the UK’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult and the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS). We operate substantial and well-established collaborations with academic and industrial partners throughout the world. With more than 150 staff and more than 80 Postgraduate Research (PGR) students both PhD and EngD, and more than 650 students from over 30 nations, we are a vibrant, international community. 

 

The Department currently utilises its own teaching and workshop facilities along with those provided by other Departments in the Faculty of Engineering and the University as a whole. DMEM students have access to a wide variety of design and (additive) manufacturing equipment in our multiple workshops and labs, e.g. the DMEM’s Digital Design and Manufacturing Studio (DDMS). Across the street and green space from the James Weir building where our Department’s facilities are housed, the University has most recently opened a £60 million state of the art Learning & Teaching hub, aimed at furthering our research and technology programmes. We emphasise through-life learning and offer multiple programmes, including Graduate Apprenticeships, Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught, Distance Learning, Continuous Professional Development, and executive programmes comprised of modules across the themes of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management. We are the only Department in the UK with its UG programmes accredited by three professional institutions: the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED), the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). For details on the programmes, see ‘Study with Us’ at http://www.dmem.strath.ac.uk.

 

As part of the University of Strathclyde, our vision is to be bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.  

 

The Department has a strong international reputation for teaching and research, and is one of the premier departments in the UK. Our strong partnerships with industry, national and international academic partner institutions, and a variety of global research agencies, and governmental agencies ensure the industrial applicability of our courses and our research outputs, and enable us to provide our students with state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities.  

 

We are looking for you who thrives to promote engineering innovation with and for engineering leaders of the future. In summary, the successful candidates will be required to undertake the independent development and delivery of classroom-based and online/blended learning teaching materials. You will have the pedagogical skills necessary to develop quality learning materials and assessment methods for classroom-based, online and distance learning programmes and the ability to ensure an enthusiastic and engaged audience. You will also be expected to centrally evolve and improve content and delivery methods, including suggesting the use of, researching and embracing new technologies and practices. You will have excellent time and project management capability, excellent communication and teamwork skills, and an ability to engage with a wide range of individuals. To be considered for this role you will be educated to degree level in a relevant engineering discipline, and previous experience in the delivery of (independent) teaching, student support, and project supervision. You will have sound engineering design and/or engineering management knowledge in topics as mentioned above, and proven ability to collaborate well with colleagues and industry.
