Lecturer in Non-medical Prescribing

Opening Date:
25 Jul 2022
Closing Date:
21 Aug 2022
Salary Range:

The School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences at RGU is looking to appoint two Lecturers in non-medical Prescribing to support the delivery of pharmacy courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. These are fixed term, 36-month appointments. These roles are suitable for applicants with a wide range of clinical backgrounds, including nursing or medical as well as pharmacy. Annotation as a non-medical prescriber and/or active prescriber experience would also be desirable.

Considering the fast paced and evolving landscape of pharmacy education, this is an exciting time to be involved with initiatives within the School. We already have a highly successful course portfolio: the undergraduate Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) course and postgraduate degrees in Clinical Pharmacy Practice, Advanced Pharmacy Practice and Clinical Pharmacy Service Development at MSc level, along with the Independent Prescribing course. We are currently involved in the re-development of the Master of Pharmacy course and postgraduate course portfolio in response to the new initial education and training standards (2021) from the GPhC and other initiatives such as changes to the Foundation training year, Clinical Academic Fellows and Consultant Pharmacist programmes.

The School has established three research themes that align directly with the principal areas of pharmacy education delivered across the taught courses. These three areas are: Research in Chemical Sciences (including analytical chemistry, drug design, formulation science and sterile manufacture of medicines); Research in Biological Sciences (incorporating biomedical sciences, physiology, pharmacology, microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and nutrition), and Practice Research (including all patient-facing activities, professional experiences and educational research). Each of these themes is led by an experienced Professor with a proven international research reputation and track record in generating external funding.

You will be an innovative individual with experience of non-medical prescribing and a range of clinical practice areas. You will actively contribute to the development and delivery of the School’s undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy portfolio. You will be a registered healthcare professional with prescribing experience who has an awareness of the theoretical and practical strategies of healthcare education.

These roles are fixed term full-time posts but, depending on suitable applicants, other FTE part-time options, job shares, and secondments may be considered. This post may be particularly attractive for applicants keen to gain experience of teaching and research within an academic setting.

Part-time applicants that will require sponsorship may be considered in line with UKVI sponsorship requirements.
