Teaching Opportunities

Teaching students at the University of Cambridge

Finding opportunities to teach undergraduates at the University typically requires you to be proactive and make approaches to those responsible for teaching in departments and Colleges.

Bear in mind that you may be able to contribute to teaching in departments beyond your own where there are related topics – you can find the full timetable of lectures in all subjects here.

Lectures – are organised in departments, contact your department’s teaching office or the academic responsible for teaching in your department to ask about opportunities to deliver lectures. 

Supervisions (teaching groups of 2-6 students) – are primarily organised by Colleges, contact Directors of Studies in Colleges or lecturers in your department to ask about opportunities to run supervisions. 

More information about getting involved with teaching in Cambridge can be found on the PdOC website.

 

Teaching at the Institute of Continuing Education

The Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) runs courses for those working towards a degree, mid-career professionals, international students, and lifelong & later life learners.

ICE courses are taught by a panel of tutors, including Cambridge academics, academics from other universities, and professional experts.

They are keen to hear from postdocs interested in joining the tutor panels for their courses – email the ICE Academic Director in your discipline area if you are interested in getting involved.

 

Teaching opportunities at the Institute for Sustainability Leadership

The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) is seeking postdocs for teaching opportunities on the global sustainability challenges facing business and society. The opportunities are primarily teaching and tutoring on part-time postgraduate courses for mid-career professionals.

The Institute is interested to hear from postdocs who have teaching experience and who can deliver engaging sessions on the research themes listed above for their postgraduate programmes.

Individuals should have some experience working in or with business, and will be able to articulate the systemic nature of the sustainability challenges that society faces and the impacts for business.

The opportunities range from delivering short lectures/talks, facilitating sessions, delivering webinars, and leading seminars.

In addition, they are seeking to enlarge their pool of supervisors for the MSt in Sustainability Leadership, and would be pleased to hear from you if your research is or relevance (or transferable) to some aspect of the sustainability agenda.

Please provide your details via this form if you would like to discuss upcoming opportunities at the Institute.
