Discovery Theme Leader: Ethics, Religion and Law

This post is open to internal applicants, currently employed at the University of Leeds only. 

Do you want to develop your existing curriculum enhancement and leadership skills to shape the academic experience of all students? Can you confidently lead the development of one of the Leeds Curriculum Discovery Themes?

Reflecting global challenges and the breadth of exciting disciplinary and interdisciplinary work at Leeds, Discovery Themes give our students the opportunity to pursue their interests and complement their core subject(s). We are looking to appoint a leader for the Ethics, Religion and Law.

You will work collaboratively as part of the wider team of Discovery Theme Leaders to ensure that an integrated approach is taken to implementing, evaluating and further developing the Discovery Themes. You will help lead the development of the University’s approach to Discovery, working with colleagues in relevant schools and institutes in the delivery of Discovery Modules. You will be an experienced academic leader who is creative, innovative and enthusiastic about working in cross-disciplinary teams. 

This role is offered to current members of staff for a period of three years, on a workload remission basis at current grade. Successful candidates might formally take up their appointment in for the start of semester 2, but a later start date would be considered.
