This is an outstanding development opportunity for a talented individual who wishes to advance education and research relevant to midwifery to join our faculty. Owing to the agility of our Faculty and King’s we are able to consider applicants who are interested in a Research & Teaching lectureship or an education only route, depending on best match of proficiency and interests. The post is one of ten new posts as a commitment to our Faculty’s future research and education.

The post holder will join the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care (NMPC), a world-leading centre for research, education, and training. Its applied clinical and health research transforms health, quality of life and care across maternity, palliative and end of life care, rehabilitation, nursing and related clinical, health and social sciences. Teams address complex, multi- and interdisciplinary health and social challenges. Our research is carried out locally, nationally and internationally, and globally, supported by NIHR, UKRI, EU and others. Our Faculty has around 3,000 undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research students, with a growing international intake. Our vision is to develop a blueprint for the integration of education and research to improve student experience, transform clinical care and build capability including in midwifery. This role is a core part of this ambition. The postholder will deliver and lead education in the Faculty, especially relevant to midwifery, and, if on a research and teaching contract, will collaborate on and deliver high quality sustainable research.

The postholder will join an established team of midwifery educationalists in the Department of Midwifery led by Dr Sam Bassett, and the team of researchers in the Division of Methodologies led by Professor Glenn Robert. In addition, the Faculty also has active collaborations with the Institute of Women and Children’s Health in the School of Life Course Sciences (SoLCS) of King’s College London and King’s Health Partners, making King’s one of the largest centres of research and education in maternal care in Europe. A new Clinical Academic Training Office is being developed at King’s to help foster clinical academics in their careers.

The Faculty delivers innovative and creative evidence-based education as part of continuing personal and professional development to a large number of trusts and independent health care organisations across London.  Clinical experience for undergraduate and post-graduate pre-registration midwifery students is provided in partnership with leading NHS Trusts in London.
