Dear applicant,

Thank you for your interest in the role of Reader or Professor in the School of Education.  The School of Education is one of the largest providers of education and training for student teachers, teachers and other professionals in the Higher Education sector. It is dynamic and forward looking, and enjoys a regional, national and international reputation for the quality of its provision – for example, as an Ofsted Outstanding provider of initial teacher education. There is a strong commitment to national, international and applied education research, enterprise and scholarly activity within the School of Education and across the University of Brighton more generally.

Led by Professor Andy Hobson, education research at the UoB has a strong and inclusive research environment, with a research-mentoring scheme, early career small grant funding, research conference funding, writing retreats, vibrant research seminar programme, and an annual Research and Enterprise Conference. This in addition to the four Research and Enterprise Groups, which are led by prominent researchers in their fields and include ECR and PGR members , namely: 

  • Children and Young People’s Voice and Education
  • Pedagogy, Professional Learning and Organisational Change
  • Higher Education Pedagogies and Policy
  • Narrative and Biographical Methodologies in Education

Educational researchers at the UoB are especially known for their expertise in relation to narrative, life history and mixed methods research approaches, and there is a commitment to further developing existing expertise in mixed and quantitative methods. The School of Education and University of Brighton are also committed to building sustainable research partnerships between the university and regional, national and international learning communities.

Through the appointment of a new Professor or Reader, we will further strengthen research leadership as well as our international research profile.
