The UOC is an innovative university rooted in Catalonia and open to the world. Its mission is to offer people lifelong learning to help them, and society, progress.

In accordance with the vision of its Strategic Plan, and as part of the worldwide network of universities, the UOC works strategically to drive the creation of a global knowledge space and conduct cutting-edge research in the knowledge society.

The UOC has a unique, innovative and student-centred educational model. It provides quality education that can be customized to students' individual needs, enhancing their competitiveness and contributing to the progress of society.

Faculty members are also responsible for driving innovation, especially in terms of methods and techniques used in distance learning and research activities in their fields of expertise.

The successful candidate will be awarded an open-ended, full-time contract, and should be available to start immediately.

The 22@ centre in Barcelona will be the reference workplace. However, at the UOC we mainly work remotely, with occasional on-site work when the activity so requires or is necessary.
