Salary Range:

The School of Sport, Rehabilitation & Exercise Sciences are seeking to appoint a Lecturer to complement the existing staff and contribute to the three very successful pre-registration physiotherapy degrees, including a new apprenticeship programme.

Applicants do not need to be a registered Physiotherapist as our programmes use innovative modules that are not restricted to profession specific knowledge. We would welcome applications from any HCPC registered healthcare professional, who should have experience in a variety of settings and specialities in order to support teaching across the breadth of the curriculum.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the research environment in one of our research groups. Opportunities also exist to build on our existing collaborations with the wider University community.

The post-holder will contribute to the delivery of learning and teaching within the School, and for ASER contracts, through the establishment of an internationally excellent research programme, the publication of high-quality research papers and the development of innovative teaching methods.

Duties will include engaging effectively in substantive teaching and learning support roles in the School, supervising student projects, fieldwork and placements and incorporating subject and undertake leadership duties related to education (and research for G9 ASER) appropriate to career stage as may be reasonably required.

In addition, for Grade 9 ASER contracts, you will develop a research agenda, which pursues individual and/or collaborative research objectives and produce research outputs for publication.

Qualifications and Skills required:
The successful candidate will hold a relevant doctoral level research degree or have equivalent professional experience or practice or be close to completion of a PhD and will be registered as a healthcare professional with the Health and Care Professions Council.

Experience of designing and planning learning activities, developing effective learning environments and approaches to student/client support and guidance; demonstrable experience in a variety of clinical settings and specialities and strong communication skills, both written and verbal are all essential for this post.

In addition, for ASER contracts, you will have a clear publication plan for submission to future Research Excellence Framework (REF) programmes and evidence of a research agenda, engagement in high-quality research activity and a developing research profile.
