You will have a portfolio of internationally-recognized outputs (academic, performance and/or composition) and will be able to contribute significantly to Newcastle’s research culture and future REF submissions.
You will be able to demonstrate a track record of high quality teaching ideally within a higher education environment, as well as experience of having effective administration capabilities.
