Dear Colleagues,

You might be interested in the following roles, or they could be of
interest to colleagues.


Background

The “Behaviour in Teams” (BiT) project began in 2015 with a post-doctoral
fellowship examining how behaviour in team meetings can predict team
performance, and whether providing feedback to teams and individuals can
lead to changes in behaviour over a series of meetings. More broadly, it
seeks to develop methods that can assist in students and others learn how
they can work more effectively in teams.  The project is now being expanded
so that the method developed can be rolled out to more settings, with more
flexibility. As part of this expansion,  the team is growing and the
following posts are available:

1.  Skills Developer (Job ref UOS016997). You will play a key role in
designing instruction both for students undertaking team tasks, via brief
sessions embedded within week-long or similar modules, and for observers
being trained in observing teams, coding, and giving feedback. The
successful candidate will hold a good honours degree (or equivalent
experience) and have experience of working in an educational setting.
Experience of working within a research team and of curriculum design are
essential.

 2. Information Manager (Job ref UOS016998) You will have overall
responsibility for the capture, storage, and processing of data within the
project, and in particular helping to develop the current app for different
platforms and devices, and developing and maintaining systems to allow the
automated transfer and storage of project data. The successful candidate
will hold a good honours degree (or equivalent experience) and experience
of working with large databases. Knowledge of big data tools and analytic
methods, cloud-based solutions and smartphone and tablet app design are
essential.

The team is based within the Management School but works with a range of
departments and Faculties.
Closing date: 18 September
