We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Senior Lecturer in Paramedic Practice to contribute to the provision of high quality teaching and research within the Institute of Health Professions. The main aspects of this post are to maximise the opportunities to further embed research and evidence-informed practice throughout our curricula, and to work with our professorial team to contribute to, and lead on, the development of the paramedic research profile within the department. You will lead on teaching relating to research methods across the department and be key in supporting other members of the team to develop their research profiles.


You will possess a PhD or Professional Doctorate or equivalent and have evidence of a research profile in the field of prehospital care. You will hold a recordable teaching qualification (for example, PGCE) and ideally be recognised as a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy; those who do not have SFHEA recognition will need to commit to achieving this at the earliest opportunity. In addition, you will be currently registered with the HCPC as a paramedic and have experience of teaching in an academic or clinical setting. Dedication to innovative teaching and research activities within paramedic practice are also a requirement of the post in order to contribute towards the paramedic portfolio and the profile of the faculty.
