Universities' Collaboration in eLearning


The Universities' Collaboration in eLearning (UCeL) is seeking to appoint an Eduserv Research Fellow in Collaborative eLearning. This will be a three-year, fixed-term appointment at Research Associate grade commencing in April 2004 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Fellow will be educated to Ph.D. Degree level (or will have significant equivalent experience) with a strong interest in eLearning principles (pedagogy, learning design, learning styles, HCI, VLE/MLE) and/or eLearning development and project management. Practical experience will be more important than theoretical knowledge.

The Fellow's areas of expertise could be in a range of subjects including (but not exclusively) behavioural science; educational psychology; general sciences - physics, chemistry, biology, etc.; social and political sciences; health professional education. More important than the subject area will be the Fellow's potential to run a collaborative project and work effectively with colleagues in many different institutions and from different subject backgrounds. Excellent critical, analytical, and presentation skills will be essential. Creativity and resourcefulness would also be desirable attributes.

The Fellowship presents a unique opportunity for a well-organized, self-motivated person to make a significant contribution to a rapidly evolving area of academic activity. The Fellow will be expected to disseminate their work widely in publications, presentations, and conferences.

The appointment will be within the salary range of £21,125 to £24,121 depending on qualifications and experience.

Full details including an application form can be found on the UCeL website at http://www.ucel.ac.uk/jobs/. The closing date for receipt of applications is Friday, 20 February. Interviews will take place in Cambridge in late February/early March.

Informal enquiries can be made to the Director of UCeL, Dawn Leeder (tel. 01223 765363, e-mail dawn@ucel.ac.uk).
