I am currently applying for a lecturer position in mathematics, in the UK. I just have a general question regarding how the applications usually compare to US applications. In the US, most of these jobs require a very precise list of documents: recommendation letters, CV, research statement, teaching statement, and maybe some other stuff. Usually it's very clear.
In the UK, most of the applications I found require an application form + supporting material. In many of them, it's not so clear what this supporting material should be. My plan was to include at least my CV, publication list, and research statement (similar to the one I would send to a US application). But what about the teaching statement? I don't want to make my application extra large by attaching unnecessary documents which could end up being detrimental. Specially a teaching statement, the idea of which I never bonded with.
I'm willing to write one and submit it as well, but I wanted to know from UK people (specially those that have been in hiring committees) about this.
