The University of Portsmouth achieved the highest ‘Gold’ rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) – the UK government’s first assessment of teaching excellence in higher education. Portsmouth Business School has a track record of sustained excellence in teaching and research as evidenced by the consistently very high student satisfaction scores in the National Student Survey, the excellent employability record of our graduates, and the results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) submission. The breadth and depth of our research was viewed by the REF2014 panel as having an outstanding and very significant impact in economic, social and policy-making terms, placing us in the top 10% for impact; 87.5% of our research environment was rated as internationally excellent; and 62% of our research as world-leading or internationally excellent.

We seek to appoint sessional teaching fellows to contribute to the: (i) delivery of our existing courses, and; (ii) development of new courses in the fields of Economics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The number of hours worked is flexible and by negotiation. The rate of pay will include remuneration for all work done in connection with development of new course material, teaching, preparation, setting and marking of assessments and examinations, related course administration and holiday pay accrued.

Candidates must have relevant qualifications (see person specification for further details). Previous experience of teaching or design and development of modules and course material at university level would be an advantage.

Successful candidates will be appointed to the bank of sessional teaching fellow staff available and offered hours as needed by the School. The number of hours taught varies considerably and will depend both on the availability of the individual and the needs of the School.
