Are you an Occupational Therapist looking to start a teaching career in higher education? Perhaps you’re an established lecturer and would like to join a supportive team to help shape our growing Occupational Health offering and develop your own academic career in the process…

We are looking for Lecturers in Occupational Therapy to join us at our beautiful Glenside Campus in Bristol to teach, support and assess students undertaking their degree and masters qualifications.

We are able to provide support through our PGCAPP postgraduate teaching programme and will provide you with the necessary support to develop your teaching skills. Additionally, if you would like to continue practicing Occupational Therapy, we are able to consider a slight reduction in the contractual hours of this post.

Other responsibilities of this post will include teaching and assessing, module leadership, an academic and personal tutor role, research support for undergraduate students, practice placement supervision, and being part of the Occupational Therapy team in curriculum development and quality monitoring.
