Salary Range:

The School of Health and Social Care is seeking to appoint a full-time Senior Lecturer in Speech & Language Therapy. We would particularly welcome applications from individuals that are keen to develop research, drawing from, and building upon, existing research expertise within the school and applicant’s own research profile. Applicants should have a strong commitment to team working and to enhancing the contribution of both research and education to Speech & Language Therapy.

The post includes a significant contribution to our Speech & Language Therapy courses at Colchester campus (these are run at UG and PG level). It is expected that as a senior member of staff you would assist the Subject Lead, providing strategic guidance and practical support to the Programme Leads and undertake module leadership and teaching / assessment duties where needed.

This role will require management, administration, supervision, and support for staff alongside, assessment and teaching of students on our existing modules, and generally enhancing our research-led teaching in Speech & Language Therapy.

We have a high reputation for our innovative educational delivery of Speech & Language Therapy programmes (in the top 15 in the National Student Survey for overall student satisfaction, 100% Employability, ranked gold in 2017 for the Teaching Excellence Framework, and named University of the Year 2018). We aim for excellence in research as well as in education and are looking for candidates who can contribute to both.

In April 2017 we were awarded a silver Athena SWAN award which recognises the commitment the School has toward equality and development of an inclusive culture, promoting dignity and respect.
