An opportunity has arisen for two motivated Lecturers/Senior Lecturers in Occupational Therapy (OT) to join our team at Oxford Brookes.

Located within the Department for Sport, Health Science and Social Work, we provide pre-registration OT programmes at BSc and MSc degree levels.

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the management, scholarly activity and developmental ambitions of the department, taking responsibility for a programme role as required.

The post holder must have a pre-registration degree in Occupational Therapy or a relevant equivalent, and a postgraduate degree in a health and social care related subject or be studying for one. Applicants must be registered with the HCPC as an Occupational Therapist (international applicants are invited if they have commenced the process of registration with the HCPC). Depending on applicant experience, split posts may be considered.
