Founded in 1894, City, University of London is a global university committed to academic excellence with a focus on business and the professions and an enviable central London location.
City attracts around 20,000 students (over 40% at postgraduate level) from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.
In the last decade City has almost tripled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research.
Led by President, Professor Sir Paul Curran, City has made significant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university.
The Division of Nursing in the School of Health Sciences is one of London’s longest-established providers of undergraduate and postgraduate health care education. It has a strong programme of world-leading research in the areas of child health and partnership working with children and their families; mental health care across the life span; people with physical health and long-term conditions; acute and critical care; and care of the older person. The Division works in partnership with service users and carers, alongside health and social care experts and providers, to develop and deliver world-leading and internationally excellent education and research which shapes future nurse leaders.
Supporting the Divisional Lead, the Associate Divisional Leads will contribute to leadership and management within the Division, each having a focus on one of the key fields of practice: Adult, Child and Mental Health Nursing. The Associate Divisional Lead role will be for three years initially, and offers an exceptional opportunity for outstanding academics in Nursing to develop their academic management careers.
The appointed academics will build on their research and educational achievements and develop their reputation as academic and professional leaders in Nursing. They will be responsible for the student experience, both within the Division and the practice environment; and will contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate education in their fields.
The successful candidates will have a first degree in a relevant discipline and a postgraduate degree or an appropriate and equivalent professional qualification. They will be experienced academics, will be registered nurses with the Nursing Midwifery Council and will have extensive experience of delivering high-quality education. Experience of delivering effective staff management, or the demonstrable ability to do so, is essential.
Appointment at Senior Lecturer level on an Education & Research role profile will require, in addition to the above, a doctoral degree, normally a PhD and a national or developing international reputation as a recognised authority in the field of Nursing.
Applicants should indicate the role for which they are applying and address, in their supporting statement, the specified criteria.
Closing date: 17 January 2021
