The Institute for Manufacturing has the following vacancies:


Supervision of undergradute students at Cambridge Judge Business School


Undergraduate students’ supervisions typically entail one-hour sessions with a small group of undergraduate students, who are asked to prepare a given task (for example, a question taken from a past exam) in advance. The purpose of the sessions is to support, encourage and challenge students during the course of their studies. 

MST students are expected to meet a supervisor four times during the course of each module, and supervisors are expected to look after (at least) four or five groups of students at a time. In line with this, candidates to this job need to be ready to commit to (at least) 16 hours per term to hold supervisions plus preparation time. Supervisors are briefed by the relevant module leader and given access to the course materials for planning purposes, ahead of the supervision sessions. At the end of the term, the students’ colleges remunerate the supervisors for each supervision report submitted. 

If you would like to supervise Management Studies Tripos students at CJBS, please check the eligibility criteria per module given below. Note that this opportunity is only open to University of Cambridge PhD students (and PostDocs). Previous experience is desirable but not essential, as training is available from the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning (CCTL).
