Salary Range:

The School of Allied and Public Health Professions is seeking to appoint Clinical Academic Fellows in Paramedicine. We have a number of clinical academic posts available and will welcome applications for fellowships in:

  • Implementation and improvement in paramedic practice
  • Practice learning in paramedicine
  • Paramedic Contribution to primary care

This unique opportunity will provide an ambitious paramedic with the opportunity to pursue a clinical academic career, bridging paramedic practice, education and research. The appointee will simultaneously provide learning and teaching support to paramedic and other students in both practice settings and the University, and undertake a PhD in an area of expertise of strategic importance. This refers to implementation, or how evidence, in all its forms, can be used to improve the effectiveness, reliability or acceptability of paramedic practice and service delivery.

The Role

The Fellow’s teaching activities will depend upon experience, but will principally focus on the delivery of teaching and learning within modules on the undergraduate degree in paramedic science (20%). There will be an opportunity to support the wider aspects of programme delivery, including administration and personal academic tutor roles (30%), and supporting students in practice learning (20%). The Fellow will benefit from dedicated time and support for personal professional development (30%) which will include their PhD. The successful candidates will also enrol on the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP).

You will work within an established and friendly group of academic and professional staff, and will contribute to enhancing the work and the reputation of the School as a whole, collaborating interprofessionally and effectively with colleagues in the Faculty, University and externally as appropriate.

The Person

We welcome applications from UK HCPC registered paramedics, who have a minimum of a relevant First Honours degree 2:1 or above with research skills to support the early stages of a PhD programme and ability to teach and provide teaching support at undergraduate level.
