a) Possession of a higher degree by research at doctoral level
b) Clear research competence and recent research expertise, demonstrated through peer-reviewed publications, regular conference attendance, or research grant income in the past five years

In addition, you will need to evidence a commitment to enhancing the student experience with excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to develop professional relationships. You will need to demonstrate effective organisational skills, with the ability to apply attention to detail and meet the students’ deadlines, and be able to work collaboratively with the student, the supervisory team and the wider UWTSD team.
