Recruiting now – research tutor required!

I am in the process of recruiting a new part-time course tutor for the MSc Mental Health Social Work with Children & Adults programe at the Institute of Psychiatry.

The tutor will lead on the teaching of research methods, basic statistics, critical appraisal skills and research protocol writing on the classroom programme and associated e-learning courses. The tutor will teach on three modules of this programme, e-tutor students on their e-learning equivalents and supervise some MSc student research projects. It’s an exciting opportunity for an ambitious post-doctoral researcher to join a leading advanced post-qualifying social work programme and help to shape its future.

We are looking for someone with an in-depth knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods and an ability to effectively teach research methods and basic statistics to postgraduate students with little prior knowledge of the subject. The tutor will need to be able to respond flexibly to student’s learning needs, whether they are classroom-based or distance learning students. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in social work, social care or a closely related discipline and have an interest in empirical research in this field. The post holder will work with department staff to develop research proposals in the field of social work and social care for external funding. Therefore, in addition to an interest in teaching, it is expected that the course tutor will be interested in developing as a post-doctoral researcher.
