Lecturer (Academic) in Physiotherapy

Opening Date:
25 Mar 2019
Closing Date:
23 Apr 2019
Salary Range:

Bournemouth University’s vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice.

The Faculty of Health and Social Sciences (HSS) is central to this vision, working closely with practice partners to prepare and develop health care and social work professionals to provide high quality care. This role is based in the physiotherapy team and offers the opportunity to work collaboratively within BU and with external partners in developing an excellent student experience.

You will facilitate learning mainly across the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy programme and to some extent in the Continuing Professional Development programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. However there will be opportunities to engage with colleagues across the Faculty and University to develop new courses in health and wellbeing at post graduate levels and to take forward the research, professional practice and education agenda.

Bournemouth University is committed to Fusion, a model that brings together education, research and clinical practice. We are looking for committed individuals that bring strength in two areas, education and practice, and who wish to develop their research expertise. This academic position is designed to enable such a practitioner to be supported in developing research skills through doctoral training and applicants would be committed to obtaining a relevant Doctorate within an agreed timescale. Applicants should have a good degree in physiotherapy or a related discipline and are expected to be familiar with current developments in research and scholarship, but research experience is not a requirement.

You must be registered with the Health Care Professions Council and have relevant practice and some teaching experience in the field of physiotherapy.
