Opportunities have arisen for AC3 lecturers to join our Adult Nursing and Community Health team within the School of Health and Life Sciences, where teaching and research are at the heart of all the school’s activities. Ideally, the successful candidates will be a registered adult nurse and qualified to at least Masters level. Other professional accredited body registrations, such as HCPC, with the appropriate professional experience may be considered, but preference will be given to applicants registered with the NMC. A Doctoral qualification, or currently engaging in doctoral level study, is desirable but not essential.

You will join a dedicated team who strive to continuously inspire our students and wider University community – and, through modern teaching and impactful research, continue to deliver innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges.

The posts require skilled and motivated people with clinical credibility to contribute to the currency and clinical relevance of our adult nursing, mental health and social care programmes, and to deliver and develop our post graduate portfolio. The ability to contribute to module and programme development is integral to this post, along with engagement in wider academic activities such as consultancy, CPD, and scholarship to enhance teaching or academic knowledge.

The successful candidate should have the following:

  • Professional Registration (preferably NMC)
  • Relevant Masters Degree
  • Experience of learning, teaching and assessment within Higher Education
  • Professional Body qualification/recognition
  • Appropriate evidence of external engagement which is clearly in line with the School’s priority areas for the future, or be able to demonstrate the synergies (e.g. external engagement in terms of research, or knowledge exchange, or engagement with professional bodies or other external organisations)
  • Experience of delivering and developing modules across the area of adult nursing and/or mental health, and healthcare (undergraduate and post-graduate levels); and experience of hybrid delivery of learning and teaching and of use of authentic/real-world assessment approaches
  • Commitment to delivering high quality teaching and supporting an outstanding student experience.
  • Understand equality and diversity issues as they may impact on research/academic content and issues relating to student need.
