Professor of Digital Education

Do you have an excellent track record of research outputs, funding and leadership in the field of Digital Education? Would you like the opportunity to lead a strong group of researchers and teachers in a Russell Group University? Would you like to develop and lead an outstanding research centre?

Contributing to national and international initiatives and developments within the field of Digital Education, you will play a key part in realising our ambitious research, teaching and strategy. By providing expert strategic leadership and through your own research, you will make a significant contribution to the School of Education’s research profile, management and growth. You will provide leadership and develop the School’s Research Centre for Digital Education. You will provide a research lead and focus for this group, and seek to develop the Centre’s outward facing activities, interdisciplinary work, and collaboration with academic and non-academic external partners.

The School of Education values an inclusive working and teaching environment and our aim is to develop a diverse staff and student community reflective of this. We select candidates on the basis of merit and ability and aspire to further diversify our School and Faculty community. We particularly welcome applications from candidates belonging to groups that have been under-represented in the University including, but not limited to: Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people, people who identify as LGBTQ+, and disabled people.
