Job description

The Psychology Department of the FMG is looking for tutorial teachers in the 2nd year of our programme from January 30 onwards. Starting in the second semester, you will be involved in teaching in one of the different elective programs ('Specializations'), depending on your specific background. In the first semester, you will work within the 2nd year of the shared bachelor programme, in a young, enthusiastic, self-directed team, with the freedom to share and incorporate your own ideas and initiatives. You will teach tutorials for the courses Scientific and Statistical Reasoning (SSR), Fundamentals of Psychology (FP), and Practical Training: Psychological Research (PT:PR). Does this appeal to you? Then we look forward to hearing from you!

What are you going to do
  • In the second semester, you will be involved in the department of your background, teaching tutorials for the different specializations/electives.
  • Throughout the academic year, you will work with groups of students to collectively explore the course material in-depth. You give feedback on research reports, essays, and other assignments of students and you assess these with a grade.
  • In the first semester, you are also the mentor of the students in your groups: you'll have (individual) mentoring meetings, and you provide guidance for students in their learning process where needed.
  • Every Tuesday from 16.00-17.00 in the first semester, you attend team meetings in which we evaluate last week's tutorial meetings together and look ahead to the next week.

Requirements

You enjoy supervising groups of (international) students in the second year of their psychology studies. You like teaching academic skills such as data analysis (statistics), scientific writing, argumentation, and the philosophy of science. You are interested in teaching, you want to develop yourself as a teacher, and reflect on your own skills. You have excellent communication and social skills and you can work well in a team.

Because we are a bilingual bachelor's programme, we are looking for tutorial teachers who can teach either in English or in Dutch. Teaching will be on campus, if possible. We strive for a diverse team in which different perspectives are represented.

In addition, you have:
  • nearly or recently obtained a master's degree in Psychology (or a strongly related field);
  • a background in psychological methods, work and organizational psychology, brain and cognition, or clinical neuropsychology;
  • proficiency in Dutch, English, or both;
  • good scientific writing skills and an excellent command of the respective teaching language;
  • preferably some teaching experience or experience in guiding groups.
For more information on the courses of the second year, please consult the online study guide.

Conditions of employment

We offer a temporary employment contract of 4 years (with 2 months probation). Depending on how many tutorial groups you want to give, you can work between 11.4 and 33.1 hours.

You will be given time for training and development (DOP). The DOP is meant to increase the future employability of beginning lecturers after their temporary employment. During the 4 years, you will follow several professionalisation courses with your colleagues within the FMG.

The UFO profile docent 4 is applicable. Depending on relevant experience at the start of the employment, the salary amounts to €2960 to €3703 gross per month based on full-time employment (38 hours per week), in accordance with salary scale 10. This is excluding an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus. The Cao Nederlandse Universiteiten applies.

If you have not yet graduated, you can be employed as a student assistant for 6 months with a possible extension. You are then not eligible for the DOP.
