University of the West of England
London, Greater London, United Kingdom
Job type: fulltime
Job industry: Education
The University of the West of England is continuing its success in REF 2014 by creating a number of new posts for exceptional individuals that provide exciting opportunities to progress our 2020 strategic goals of 'Research with Impact' and 'Outstanding Learning'.
Working in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery and linking into the Centre for Health and Clinical Research within the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences, this fast-track post will launch an outstanding individual's clinical research and teaching career in emergency care in adults or children, with an equal split between research and teaching in the first instance.
This academic appointment as a Lecturer is permanent and for the first three years you will divide your time 50:50 with half of your time completing a part-time PhD in emergency care research aligned to an identified area that supports the excellence of this theme and with an expectation that you will also help support research projects outside of your doctorate. The other half of your time will be spent teaching on our undergraduate, postgraduate and workforce development programmes in nursing, as appropriate. This will enable you to establish a strong, balanced profile in the longer term, combining teaching and research. You will be provided with appropriate training, support and mentoring.
If you do not already have an HE teaching qualification, you will be supported to undertake the University Academic Development Programme, and the successful candidate will also be fully supported to complete a PhD in a relevant subject area.

It also has a vibrant and expanding Continuous Professional Development programme, underpinned by funded regional contracts.
Additionally, the department has a number of research staff whose work achieved very successful returns in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
We pride ourselves in embedding research within teaching and learning through curriculum delivery, professorial contributions, research elective placements and an annual student dissertation conference.
The Department, together with the Department of Allied Health Professions, are holders of an Athena SWAN Bronze award and committed to improving gender equality and a culture of inclusivity.
