The post-holder will also be responsible for the organisation of research project modules, and general daily communication with the students taking the programme. The role will involve further development of innovative approaches with respect to delivery and assessment of the course material, and recruitment of students. The role will provide the post-holder with the opportunity to develop and deliver new modules in the area of environmental biology / sustainability, depending on the specific background of the successful candidate. The post-holder will also be required to provide input into other relevant degrees in the School.
