Stipendiary Lectureship in Engineering

Hertford College proposes to appoint a Stipendiary Lecturer in Engineering to teach topics related to Maths. The capacity to teach material related to Structures, Materials and Mechanics is desirable. The Lectureship is fixed-term from 1 October 2019 to 30 September 2020 (with payment continuous through terms and vacations). It can be held in conjunction with another similar appointment to the extent that this is compatible with the responsibilities of the Lectureship.


The tutorial teaching load (in pairs and small classes) will correspond to an average of three hours per week over the three terms. The appointee will also be required to participate in the undergraduate admissions process in December 2019 (including interviews in mid-December), and to help in directing the studies of undergraduates reading Engineering, assisting with pastoral care where necessary.


Candidates should have a good first Engineering degree and have or be close to completing a doctorate in Engineering or a related discipline.


Experience of teaching undergraduates, preferably in small groups, would be an advantage, as would experience with Oxford undergraduate admissions. The salary for this post will be in the range £6,756 - £7,599 for the period of employment, depending on qualifications and experience, and will be pensionable with USS. The appointment is subject to a probationary period of six months, and a notice period of three months on either side (both during and after probation). The successful candidate will also be entitled to associate membership of the college’s Senior Common Room (SCR); free lunches while undertaking teaching duties in term time and during vacations; and one dinner each week during term time (weeks 0–9) without cost. Further particulars for the post are available on the Hertford College website:
