The Department for Health is seeking to appoint a part time Lecturer (Teaching) in Health. The successful applicant will join a team of lecturers delivering a suite of units across undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including the BSc Health and Exercise Science and the Professional Doctorate in Health, and to contribute to the development of new units related to public health. The post is not restricted to a particular discipline, but is open to applicants from any background whose expertise and interests complement the Department’s programmes and focus. We particularly welcome applications from those familiar with working in multi-disciplinary settings.

The successful applicant will be asked to lead and contribute to undergraduate teaching in areas that match their discipline, such as the promotion of health through physical activity, diet or health services at an individual or population level. In 2020/2021, our undergraduate programmes will be delivered through a blended format, combining some in-person content with live online teaching. The successful applicant will also be asked to contribute to the taught element of our Professional Doctorate in Health. The Professional Doctorate course attracts a range of health and social care professionals interested in developing research in their practice settings, providing a stimulating working environment. The course is delivered primarily online, accompanied by attendance at annual summer schools.

This is a 0.5 FTE part time position to start in Autumn 2020.
