Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE) is recruiting for the LITE Fellowship.

The role offers secondment at a level of 0.2 to 0.8 full-time equivalent (FTE), which can be spread over one to three years and shared between several colleagues.

Funding may be taken as secondment from current duties, or a portion can be used to buy in a research assistant, for example.

Professor Tina Overton, LITE Director, said: “The LITE Fellowship continues to focus on setting an aspirational standard of teaching excellence and pedagogic scholarship across the University.

“We had an excellent response to the launch of the new Fellowship, and now we want to build on that and attract more high-calibre candidates to take up this great opportunity to boost student education at Leeds."

The closing date for applications for this latest round is Monday November 4.
