Our vibrant, modern University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally and we have ambitious plans for our future. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investments.
The Department of Acute Care is one of five departments in our Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education. With over 10,500 students, our Faculty is the largest provider of health and social care education in the East of England.
This fixed term position is an innovative new role for the Faculty and one which is being taken forward jointly with one of our partner Trusts (Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). You will work collaboratively within the Trust to lead pre-registration student focussed academic/practice collaborative activity with a range of students. You will be required to contribute to the departmental research strategy and expected outcomes of an academic including the commitment to register for a PhD/PrD within eighteen months of commencement; this will include an empirical research project that will focus on the student learning experience in clinical practice. The role will be based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge and in our new campus building at Young Street in Cambridge. Addenbrooke’s Hospital is an internationally known university teaching hospital at which our students undertake clinical placements across a range of settings.
With a higher degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, you will have experience of leading clinical teams at a senior level, project and change management, teaching of students in the clinical learning environment, and an in-depth knowledge of the issues that affect the learning of students in clinical practice.
