In Class Set Up Support Assistant

Job Description

This role is both a customer service and technical role, ensuring that all sessions start smoothly, and staff members feel supported. These would be in-room support staff. 

HyFlex (Hybrid flexible sessions) are teaching sessions where students are both online and in class at the same time. Cameras and microphones in the room pick up a view of the students in class, and a large screen shows a view of the students online so both groups are connected. The equipment takes a few minutes to set up and needs someone with a calm manner and reasonable computing expertise. Setting up involves ensuring the staff member logs in, has the microphone and audio settings organized appropriately, and is ready to go at the start of the session. Instructions on how to do this will be supplied to the job applicant, and induction/training will be provided. The aim of the role is to ensure that every HyFlex session starts smoothly and to help resolve staff anxiety/worries about the equipment and set up.  

The role would be based in central London at the Strand campus. Staff would be expected to be dressed in a professional manner (eg shirt or polo shirt or equivalent), and always be courteous and polite. Hours will be around 9-5, but there may be sessions starting at 8.30 or ending at 7. 

There would be a day of training at the start – part of which would be reading online, part of which would be online meeting/training and problem solving, and part of which would be in room practice. (Applicants will be expected to make use of their own laptop to do online training). The first day’s work would be on the 17th Jan, and a day of induction/training would need to be done prior, early in the week of the w/c 10th Jan. The role will last for 2 weeks, and there may be possibility to extend.

An exciting opportunity has come along to join Dr Jane Lewis (PI) on two research projects together with two North London councils. The research projects are part of London Met Lab Empowering London initiative, which aims to engage the University with its community partners. The research team comprises staff from the two councils and London Metropolitan University, and through qualitative and quantitative research methods they seek to understand barriers to employment for certain resident groups in the Boroughs, as well as to create policy recommendations in order to increase the employment rate amongst these resident groups. Dr Jane Lewis (PI) and Dr Josefine Nyby focus on the qualitative research aspect and are conducting focus groups (interviews) with residents with various disabilities. The role of the research assistant would be varied, but the main task would be to transcribe interviews, support the PI and colleagues with the research report, and ad hoc duties relating to the research. Dr Lewis and Dr Nyby are committed to giving valuable work experience to the candidate. Due to the nature of commissioned research work, the workload may be heavier one week and lighter the next, thus flexibility is required. The workload will be agreed upon each week, but the total amount of hours is 58, spread over five weeks. Thus, if you want to gain experience in research and policy, this role may be for you! To apply for this position, please send a cover letter (no more than one page) outlining why you would like to work on this project to Josefine ( before the deadline. Please draw on previous experiences (if you have any - studies/employment/volunteering), or your future career aspirations and why this job would be important for you. No need to send your CV. By applying for this role you confirm you are able to work flexibly over the next few weeks.

If you have experience in transcribing and/or writing policy reports, great! If not, we are happy to support you in getting this experience. We do, however, need you to have certain skills, including but not limited to, having the ability to work independently, keep deadlines and finish agreed-upon work, have good communication skills (verbal and written), and the ability to do some basic research activities. Due to the nature of the work, you will need to be flexible over the next few weeks.

The IoPPN is looking for casual teaching fellows (cTFs) to work on the online MSc Psychology & Neuroscience of Mental Health/ MSc Applied Neuroscience programmes. These are innovative MSc programmes, and we are keen to have an enthusiastic team of academics delivering excellence in teaching to our students. The contracts are 8 weeks long.


Our modules comprise 6 weeks of content (although week 6 is just a revision week with no actual lectures). Students will be assessed via one coursework activity and one MCQ exam, and TFs are required to provide feedback on a formative assessment and mark the final coursework submission. A group of approximately 25 students is allocated to each TFs.


The work is flexible, can be done remotely, and covers 15h per week of teaching activities including learning facilitation on discussion boards, Q&A forums, and assessment marking and feedback. TFs also offer live office hours sessions every week (8x15-min slots = 2h per week) and are requested to reply to students’ queries within 24 business hours. TFs will receive 120h of payment through Talent Bank (15h per week across 8 weeks, to account for the extra time required for marking and feedback across the module and week 7) at Grade 6 (approximately £23 per hour).


We require our Teaching Fellows to have a PhD in the area of psychology and neuroscience.
