As a Lecturer in Midwifery, you will join a motivated team of academics, providing high quality and impactful teaching and learning across the School. With knowledge, experience and skills as well as a degree in a relevant subject, you will be expected to contribute to the wider School portfolio which includes undergraduate and postgraduate Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic education. As a registered Midwife, you should have excellent communication and teaching skills and be able to motivate and inspire students.

  • You will be supported to engage in scholarship and research for your professional and personal development.

This is a full-time position but we will consider flexible contract types, such as part-time working.
