An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Pūkenga Matua/Ahorangi Tuarua – Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor within the School of Educational Studies and Leadership to lead and contribute to teaching in Inclusive Education.

The School of Educational Studies and Leadership offers exciting research and teaching opportunities through its new home in a world class facility, located in the heart of the University of Canterbury’s Ilam Campus.

This appointment is evidence of the commitment of the College, as well as the University, to the continual growth in research, teaching and service in the area of Inclusive Education, fitting with the University’s strategic intent to contribute to society through promoting a world-class learning environment known for attracting people with the greatest potential to make a difference – tangata tu, tangata ora.

The School of Educational Studies and Leadership is home to three established and recognized Research Groups: Educational Theory, Policy and Practice; e-Learning; and Inclusive and Special Education. The successful candidate would be expected to lead the Inclusive and Special Education Research Group (ISER).

Candidates will be expected to have:

  • relevant and effective University teaching experience in their specialist area(s), including undergraduate and postgraduate.
  • experience in thesis supervision
  • able to work independently and collaboratively in their area of research
  • a research programme that is relevant to inclusive education
  • an appropriate research publication history, and plans for future research and publication consistent with appointment at Senior Lecturer / Associate Professor rank
  • competency and confidence in bicultural practice, or a commitment to achieve such competency and confidence.

It is desirable that candidates have experience in education and can demonstrate a good understanding of the operations and priorities of the New Zealand education system.

The successful applicant will have opportunities for international conference travel to support their research and teaching activities and will have the opportunity to network with international leaders in Education, Health Sciences and a range of disciplines through the University’s unique Erskine Fellowship and Canterbury Fellowship Scheme (which enables the University to host world leading academics) and through the University’s academic staff exchange programmes with Oxford and Cambridge Universities in the UK.

The University of Canterbury is committed to promoting a world-class learning environment through research and teaching excellence, and has a vision statement of ‘People Prepared to Make a Difference’.
