Lecturer in Paramedic Science
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic healthcare professional to join our paramedic team and to contribute to the provision of high quality teaching within the Institute of Health Professions. You will teach primarily across modules on the pre-registration paramedic courses and also on relevant post-registration CPD courses. You will need to be committed to the maintenance of high academic standards and enhancement of the student experience, and be prepared to contribute to the development of the faculty’s portfolio of courses, linking with relevant external partners, and the generation of external income for the University.
You will be educated to a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree level or equivalent and preferably have completed, or be willing to work towards, a Masters qualification and a post-graduate certificate in education. You will be currently registered with the HCPC as a paramedic or with the NMC as a nurse, and have significant clinical experience in paramedic practice or an urgent/emergency care setting. Experience of teaching in an academic or clinical setting is essential and candidates with a research profile are welcomed. 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.
