A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience

Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) studentships at Edge Hill University are designed with a very strong focus on the development of each individual holding a studentship as a researcher, a teacher in Higher Education, and as an academic.

About You

You will have a 2.1 or above undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, whilst a Masters degree would also be an advantage. You should have a passion for pursuing original research in your subject area along with the desire to develop your teaching ability by supporting an experienced and dynamic undergraduate programme team.

Highly motivated, resilient and with the determination to succeed, you will be committed to undertaking a PhD and will possess strong written and oral communication skills along with excellent organisational skills.

About the Role

Graduate Teaching Assistants hold a unique position in the University, being both registered students and carrying out teaching/teaching support duties.

Students will be expected to:

  • Complete a programme of research training.
  • Undertake tailored continuing researcher development.
  • Complete a programme of training in teaching in Higher Education.
  • Complete a PhD programme of research under the guidance of an appointed supervisory team.
  • Undertake up to six hours teaching a week as directed by the Head of Department.
  • Undertake up to nine hours per week to mark and prepare.
  • Enhance the research culture of the department in which they are located, and of the University as a whole, by participating in development activities including publication and presenting at conferences.
