 Demonstrators required for new online programming and modelling courses

Could you be an online moderator answering discussion board queries and helping out in occasional face-to-face advice sessions (clinics) for a new suite of intro-level online programming and modelling courses? 

These intro-level courses  include UNIX, Python, C++, FORTRAN, IDL, Matlab, R, Netlogo, Vensim and HPC/Parallel, have been written by Leeds academics and will be rolled out this spring to our research student community. We now seek ENV, MaPS or ENG 3rd Year PhD students who are available for at least 12 months and postdoctoral staff with at least 12 months remaining on contract to be trained and work on a monthly rota basis. You will paid demonstrator rates to take initial training in the learning and teaching aspects and in how to moderate a discussion board area. You will also be paid demonstrator rates to support occasional face-to-face advice sessions (clinics) led by the course writers.

If you currently have experience and expertise in using any of the above packages and would like to get involved please send expressions of interest to Patricia Gray – with a note of which courses you are interested in by 28th March at the latest.
