Visiting Teaching Fellows

In 2017 the school of physics will be hosting a visiting teaching fellow for the first time. A teaching fellow is a current high school physics teacher who works in a secondment position in the school of physics for one year. Physics teachers in both private and public schools are welcome to apply.

The visiting teaching fellow program aims to increase communication and links between schools and universities. The visiting teaching fellow will teach in the first year physics laboratory as well as teaching some first year problem solving workshops and helping out students in drop in sessions.

The school of physics will benefit from learning more about how high school classes are taught and the knowledge basis of our incoming students. We hope that schools will benefit from seeing where some of their students end up and the learning about the way we teach students at university.

The visiting teaching fellow will have the opportunity to expand upon and refresh their physics knowledge.

More information about how to apply for the 2017 position can be found on the Jobs@UNSW site here.
Applications close on 7th July.
