You will also be encouraged to contribute to research within the School and join an appropriate research group.

We offer undergraduate, postgraduate and CPD programmes. Research in the School was rated highly in the REF2014 and continues to grow. The University of Plymouth Clinical Schools initiative is an exciting development, through which applied nursing and midwifery research focuses on topics that are timely and relevant to advancing the quality of care. Existing clusters of research, including e-health, Sustainability and Society and Health, continue to attract external funding and PhD students.

We are looking for someone who can enthuse and engage students, while also contributing to the Schools scholarly and enterprise activities. Experience as an academic in Higher Education is desirable.
