We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

You will have an understanding of assessment marking and feedback, with the capability to support in practical skills classes working with an academic. You will also be responsible for administration, including data gathering and working with student groups, offering support for placement students, and being involved in aiding student career planning. A background in Forensic Science is preferable as you will be working with academics and students within this subject area.

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated individual with the skills and experience to be part of our team within Chemistry and Forensic Sciences. You will have an enthusiastic approach to education and help further develop the academic support for students here at NTU.
