Lecturers in Nursing, Midwifery and Health Professions

Opening Date:
2 Jul 2019
Closing Date:
21 Jul 2019
Salary Range:

We have a number of newly created opportunities for lecturers from a variety of professional health backgrounds, including those that may not be directly linked to the Nursing and Midwifery sector. In particular we are looking for expertise in mental health; children and young people; midwifery; sciences, community nursing, pre hospital and acute care. This is an exciting time in nursing and midwifery education where the School is growing in undergraduate and postgraduate student numbers and we will be developing new programmes to meet the changing landscape of health and social care. With a degree in a relevant subject (achievement of MSc or PhD or working towards desirable), you will also be expected to contribute to the wider School portfolio which includes undergraduate and postgraduate nurse and midwifery education and commercialisation. There are opportunities to undertake applied health research in health and social care policy, education and clinical practice which impacts on the health and wellbeing of people, families and communities.

These are Monday to Friday roles with 46 days annual leave (including 3 statutory holidays and 7 days closure over Christmas) but we will consider flexible contract types, such as part-time, job share or term time only working. Whilst we are focussed on educating the next generation of nurses and midwives, we also appreciate the need to retain skills in the health profession, so we are equally happy to consider part and full time secondments from your current role.

The School of Nursing and Midwifery is a vibrant academic community and the main provider of nursing education in the North East of Scotland. The School is housed in a state of the art building designed to simulate both clinical and community settings providing a stimulating learning environment.

Our vision is to provide dynamic and transformational learning, teaching and research that makes a leading contribution to improving the health and well-being of local, national and global communities. We aim to engage with key partners to develop, deliver and disseminate high quality research that is of value to society, those using health and social care services, and the professions of nursing and midwifery.
