This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Automotive Engineer to work as a Lecturer based in Wales but with the opportunity to deliver to our partner institution in Wuhan, China. The role would suit a professional engineer who would like the opportunity to develop a career in academia or in a teaching / training role with a unique international experience.
You will not need to have any formal teaching qualifications but must have excellent presentation and interpersonal skills with the ability to deliver lectures that will inspire and enthuse our students in automotive engineering. A postgraduate or teaching qualification would be desirable but we can support the right candidate in achieving a teaching qualification to enhance your career.

You will offer face-to-face and online lectures and workshops and will enjoy the opportunity to spend between 12 and 30 weeks per year teaching in Wuhan and gaining International experience, (subject to Covid-19 restrictions). While not essential a basic level of Mandarin Chinese would be considered desirable.
