The NCELP (National Centre for Excellence for Language Pedagogy) are seeking one or more part time ‘Resource Developer(s)’ to create research-informed teaching materials for secondary school learners of German and French (and ideally also Spanish).

This post could suit a range of people such as:

  • excellent Masters or PhD students in applied linguistics/language education (or related subject) wishing to work for a day or two a week to complement their studies;
  • teachers or teacher educators interested in research who are working part time, wishing to complement their current commitments or planning to take a short secondment (applications from those who have recently completed their PGCE through to those who are highly experienced or retired are welcome);
  • post-doctoral researchers who enjoy creating intervention/training materials and stimuli. Recent graduates from an undergraduate degree with an outstanding track record may also be considered.

The successful candidate(s) will work very closely with the team at the NCELP.  The resources created will be made openly available on the NCELP Resource Portal.

The work is available for up to 3 days per week for up to one year (with the possibility of extension) and could easily be shared between people with different kinds of expertise or availabilities.  Some working from home is likely to be possible, though regular visits to York will be necessary and particularly at the start of the post.

*Please note the deadline for applications: 20th August 2019*

The interview selection process will include a short materials creation task.
