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.
