Salary Range:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a clinical pharmacist to contribute to the teaching and research portfolio within our school.

Our team delivers clinical teaching to undergraduate students on our patient-centred, case-based MPharm degree. We also run several post-graduate courses which include the Overseas Pharmacists’ Assessment Programme (OSPAP) and an MSc in Clinical Pharmacy. Interprofessional teaching is a core element of our provision, which we lead across the health schools, including the Brighton and Sussex Medical School. We enjoy strong research and teaching links with the pharmacy teams at University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust as well as other local employers.

You will join a vibrant, multi-disciplinary team, committed to providing high-quality education to our students. This includes inspiring the next generation of pharmacy graduates by adopting innovative approaches to clinical teaching, informed by our research, in order to breed inquisitive thinkers capable of effective decision-making. In order to be successful in this post you should have:

  • A good (1 or 2:1) MPharm degree (or non-UK equivalent), registered with or registerable with The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) or The Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland (PSNI)
  • A proven record of routinely delivering high quality clinical care in a patient facing environment, for example as part of a GP practice, within the hospital or community setting.
  • Experience of supervising and mentoring learners within the workplace
  • A non-medical prescribing qualification, annotated as such on the GPhC register
  • Experience of engagement with teaching and assessment, with competent IT skills and effective use of IT for teaching and learning

Although holding a research qualification is not a requirement, you will be expected to engage with clinical research, audit or quality improvement initiatives, working in collaboration with one of our Centres for Research and Enterprise, or a Research and Enterprise Group and/or colleagues within the local NHS.

The post is a full-time position; however, we would consider job share applications to support portfolio working, especially clinicians who wish to continue to provide a clinical commitment in their area of practice.

The School is proud to hold a Silver Athena SWAN award.
