This is an exciting opportunity to join a vibrant team of academics in our well established physiotherapy programmes (BSc Hons & MSc Pre-registration, and Post Graduate), which provide a stimulating learning experience, motivating and inspiring students to become critical thinkers and high-quality professionals. These well-established programmes rank highly for student satisfaction and graduate employment.

Our lecturers develop and utilise a range of teaching methods to support student learning in both theory and practice, and act as a personal tutor; using listening, interpersonal and pastoral care skills to deal with sensitive issues. We work in partnership with students, academics, researchers, service users and service colleagues to deliver high quality learning and teaching based on contemporary research findings and practice. A key part of the role is collaborating with colleagues across the School to develop research opportunities, and it is expected that you will continually update your disciplinary and/or professional knowledge and understanding to develop personal (and, where appropriate, collaborative) research objectives. In order to be successful in this role you must have:

  • A good first degree and MSc, or alternatively a relevant first degree plus a pre-registration MSc in Physiotherapy, and be registered with the Health & Care Professions Council
  • Up-to-date knowledge of physiotherapy practice gained though a senior practitioner role
  • Experience of leading and implementing creative approaches to developing teaching and learning of physiotherapy issues in universities and/or clinical practice
  • A Higher Education teaching qualification and/or a Higher Education Academy (HEA) Fellowship or willingness to undertake this within the first 12 months

If you have a PhD or Doctorate and can supervise at this level, you will have opportunities to develop as the university has an active programme for supporting early career researchers.
