Salary Range:

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Practice is offering an exciting opportunity for a suitably experienced and qualified professional to join our team of Lecturers providing high quality education to both pre–registration students and post–registration health care professionals. As a Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing you will join an experienced and motivated team of academics, providing support for teaching and learning across the School’s portfolio of courses and modules.

You will be a committed and motivated professional who will contribute effectively to the planning, delivery and evaluation of learning materials and student learning experiences within courses and modules across our programmes. As well as this, you will develop and use a range of skills to support students as a personal tutor as well as engaging in collaborative working with other academics, practice provider partners and a range of people and communities to enhance the school portfolio and student experience.

With knowledge, experience and skills as well as a degree in a relevant subject (achievement of MSc or PhD or working towards is desirable), you will also be expected to contribute to the wider School portfolio which includes undergraduate and postgraduate Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic education as well as commercialisation activities. There are also opportunities to undertake applied research in health and social care policy, education and clinical practice which in turn impacts on the health and wellbeing of people, families and communities.

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Practice is a vibrant academic community and the only higher education provider of its kind in the North East of Scotland. The School is housed in a state of the art building with resources designed to simulate both clinical and community settings providing a stimulating learning environment.

Our vision is to provide dynamic and transformational learning, teaching and research that makes a leading contribution to improving the health and well-being of local, national and global communities. We aim to engage with key partners to develop, deliver and disseminate high quality research that is of value to society, those using health and social care services, and the professions of nursing, midwifery and paramedic practice.

This is a full-time position but we will consider different and flexible contract types, such as part-time working. Whilst we are focussed on educating the next generation of Nurses, Midwives and Paramedics, we also appreciate the desire of some Lecturers to retain skills in their health profession, so we may consider part and full time secondments from your current role.
