Salary Range:

We are seeking to appoint a full-time Senior Lecturer for the Department of Rehabilitation and Social Work within the Faculty of Health and Science. The post is offered for consideration by individuals with experience of working with Older Adults in a contemporary setting, and who has a track record in Higher Education and Research.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic team and be a programme leader for a new programme specifically developed to address the needs of those working with or planning to work with Older Adults. The programme is innovative with the ethos of understanding of the impact of aging on individuals, groups and communities; rather than just focusing on aging in terms of illness and loss, the programme will also accentuate ways in which students can work in partnership with older adults enabling productive and independent lives.

The post holder will have responsibility for programme design, development and delivery which will involve implementation and quality assurance of teaching and learning strategies to ensure high quality learning and the best possible student experience. The post holder will also actively support the use of e-learning technologies and other strategies to effectively engage distance learning students.

The department is developing key areas of research, and has a growing reputation for engagement in enterprise activity. The post holder will be involved in these developments, and work as part of the team to seek opportunities for expansion, and to foster effective collaboration in the pursuit of research and enterprise activity, with both internal and external partners.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Alison Hampson Tel 01228 616344 or
