Perform the role of first-year coordinator, with responsibility for ensuring that our offerings align with latter-year courses in the mathematical sciences, as well as liaising with client disciplines to ensure our courses align with their program requirements. This will also entail transition-to-tertiary responsibility, in particular, developing and leading the delivery of targeted tutorials and other resources for at-risk cohorts.

  • Position two:

Be in charge of tutor development, training and coordination, and have a significant role in ensuring that tutorial resources being developed for our courses – both digital and non-digital – align with best practice and the needs of diverse student cohorts.

In addition, the successful applicants will be required to perform administrative, outreach and other activities associated with the School.
