Paid Student Research Opportunity

Are you looking for part-time work?

IATL is looking for five Student Researchers who will act as Education Champions on a project aimed to pilot, evaluate and potentially set up an embedded institution-wide network of student learning and teaching “champions.” In this role you will have the opportunity to affect real change in the teaching and learning experience across all four faculties. You are not representatives of the student body, rather you are empowered as researchers who will be responsible for working collaboratively with University staff to make recommendations that are grounded in the student experience. More specifically, you will develop the “champion role”, piloting two modes of project generation- one more University-strategy driven and the second more student driven. You willevaluate and reflect on the pilot study (pros/cons, viability of the project) and write a final report with recommendations on a possible University wide student “champion” scheme.

Each Student Researcher will be employed for 50 hours’ work, between May and August 2014, at the rate of £10.63 per hour. The work is flexible and can be organised to suit your schedule. Although some work can be done remotely, you will be required to attend multiple meetings on campus throughout the duration of the project.

You will be an undergraduate or postgraduate student with an understanding of various teaching and learning issues in a University setting (with a particular focus on student engagement), an interest in improving the student experience academically and the ability to liaise with other students and staff well. Prior knowledge and experience of social research (conducting interviews, data analysis, reporting findings, making recommendations etc.) is essential.

Further details can be found on the attached pages; informal enquiries may be made to the Project Manager Victoria Jelicic

To apply, please email a letter of application and a CV to Victoria Jelicic, the Project Manager in IATL.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Wednesday 14 May 2014.

Interviews will be held in the morning of Monday 19 May 2014.

Successful candidates should be available to start work the week of 19 May 2014.
