We are seeking a strong classroom practitioner, who is passionate about Biology and has the ability to inspire students to success.

To complement the ethos of the department, to develop students who are good biologists rather than simply meeting the needs of an examination, we welcome applications from individuals who believe in students achieving their full potential.
