Salary Range:

Bournemouth University’s vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.

The Department of Nursing Science is growing, and we have exciting opportunities to join our experienced, friendly, and supportive academic team, committed to high academic standards. The vision of the Department of Nursing Science is to provide high-quality education and research that supports excellence in practice to the benefit of all those who access healthcare, nationally and globally.

About the role

The role offers the opportunity to work across both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, providing scope to develop excellence in academic practice.

To support and enable our staff to achieve a balance between work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements for all the above roles.

We have strong established relationships with our NHS Trust partners, including two University NHS Trusts, and will consider fractional posts where we can establish joint posts with our Trust partners.

We are known for having a solid commitment to supporting and investing in research development and its fusion with education and professional practice, committed to developing your academic career. Our University offers excellent staff development opportunities including the Post-Graduate Certificate in Education and PhD/research options, with alignment to our Research Centres.

About You

As an expert in your field, you will have the opportunity to contribute to our nursing programmes. Your experience in education (from a University or clinical base) and innovation will set you aside from the rest. You will be able to demonstrate an established contribution to professional practice through engagement and leadership.

Our Department has a growing team of staff who combine their academic role with clinical practice, and we are keen to engage in clinical-academic development and explore the combination of fractional posts with clinical work, with your existing employer.

A key attribute will be your ability to work flexibly across our undergraduate and postgraduate nursing programmes (pre-registration and CPD), where your insight into contemporary practice (clinical or educational), will enhance student experience and learning.

You will be a highly motivated individual who brings strength in education and practice, and who is looking to develop or exercise their research expertise. For most posts, we offer a structured opportunity to enable you to develop research skills through doctoral studies and we will support you to obtain a relevant Doctorate within an agreed timescale.

Above all, we are looking for people who share our passion for high quality nursing education and have a strong vision for how the integration of education, practice and research can transform health care. If this is you, we would be pleased to hear from you.
