Stipendiary Lecturership in Engineering

St Catherine’s College proposes to appoint a three-hour Stipendiary Lecturer in Engineering Science, with effect from 29 September 2022. The Lecturership will be for two years to cover a teaching buy-out.

The Lecturer will be expected to teach three weighted hours a week averaged over the three terms (twenty-four weeks) of the academic teaching year (the College operates a weighting system whereby hours spent teaching groups larger than one person count for more than one hour). College teaching is in small groups (usually two or three students). The post-holder will be responsible for teaching parts of Paper P4 to first-year undergraduates, the thermofluids elements of Paper A4 to second-years undergraduates and parts of Paper B2 to third-year undergraduates. In addition, as a member of the team of Engineering Science tutors, the post-holder will be expected to play a full role in the running of Engineering Science in the College, including arranging tuition in Engineering, participating in the admissions process, setting and marking College examinations, and taking a role in the pastoral care of undergraduates. Informal enquiries about the tutorial teaching requirements may be made to the Director of Studies for Engineering, Professor David Gillespie ( or Professor Orestis Adamidis  (            

The annual stipend for three terms is currently £6,981 and is pensionable. The Lecturer will be a member of the Senior Common Room and will be entitled, free of charge, to one lunch and two dinners per week during term-time and during the admissions exercise in December. Teaching/seminar rooms are available for booking within College.
