Stipendiary Lecturership in Engineering – closing date 22 July

St Catherine’s College proposes to appoint a two-hour Stipendiary Lecturer in Engineering, with effect from 1 October 2024. The Lecturership will be for one year in the first instance.

The Lecturer will be expected to teach two 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 Sensing Signals and Communications in the second year A2 course (2A2F, 2A2G, 2A2H); Energy Systems, Power Electronics, and Electrical Power Networks from the second year A4 Course (2A4E, 2A4F, 2A4G, 2A4H). In addition, as a member of the team of Engineering tutors, the post-holder will be expected to play a full role in the running of Engineering 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 Professor Orestis Adamidis (email:

The annual stipend for three terms is currently £5,081 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.
