Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Sport and Recreation (two positions)

Vacancy 13-62

The Department of Social Science, Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Sport in the Faculty of Environment, Society and Design is seeking to appoint two Lecturers/Senior Lecturers in Community Recreation and Sport and Sport and Recreation Policy and Planning.

The appointees will teach into inter-disciplinary undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, as well as complement and support our existing strengths and focus on sport and recreation, and their links with the associated areas of tourism and parks. An appreciation of sport and recreation policy at various scales (local, regional, national, global) and/or an appreciation of both the range of community recreation issues (e.g. sporting, cultural, tourism) at various scales (local, regional, national, global), along with relevant experience and theoretical awareness, is, therefore, highly desirable. Some expertise in associated areas, such as recreation management, would also be an advantage. An active research profile which demonstrates an engagement with current issues, theory and practice is essential.

Initial enquiries can be directed to Dr Gary Steel, Head of Department – Social Science, Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Sport.
