Change your career, change lives
The Open University is the UK’s largest university, a world leader in flexible part-time education combining a mission to widen access to higher education with research excellence, transforming lives through education.
We are looking to recruit several Associate Lecturers in the area of Data Science in the School of Computing and Communications at the Open University.
The position is part-time initially at up to 0.09 FTE on one module such as TM351 Data Management and Analysis with the possibility of teaching other modules within the School.
The position is home-based and has no fixed core hours. It is permanent, with a probation period of two years.
The annual salary and workload are fixed, but there are significant workload peaks and troughs, mainly linked to providing marking and assessment feedback.
This will include end of module marking tasks. Other tasks will be required such as focused student support (individual and forum), such as peer mentoring and working with the module team on assessment activities and quality improvement.
Some evening and weekend work will be required. There is the possibility of increasing the FTE later. The starting full-time salary is £34,304 paid pro rata based on your FTE.
Although most of the teaching occurs between October and June, the position is paid over the full calendar year.
