We are inviting applications for an Anatomy Demonstrator from enthusiastic individuals, keen to help our students advance their anatomy knowledge and understanding in an applied context.
This is a developmental opportunity to join our core anatomy education team, to help provide students with support, guidance and high quality anatomy teaching and learning.
Anatomy teaching and learning at the Peninsula Medical School is clinically applied, including topographical and functional anatomy and neuroanatomy.
You will primarily teach topographical and functional anatomy, but there is a potential to extend into medical imaging and histology, given appropriate knowledge and experience.
The majority of teaching occurs in small groups, providing you with an opportunity to facilitate hands-on, interactive sessions combining cutting-edge technology, such as the Anatomage system, with topography, working with our team of Model Patients.
We follow a constructively-aligned teaching paradigm, teaching anatomy in the way doctors see it in practice.
Our spiral curriculum encourages deep learning of subjects that are expanded on in different contexts and further depth, through each year of the course, ensuring our students are equipped fully to pursue any specialty they prefer.
The primary teaching focus is on the undergraduate Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS), BMBS with Foundation Year, Diagnostic Radiography (BSc) and postgraduate Physician Associate MSc programmes, although there may also be opportunities to provide teaching to clinical and allied health profession staff within the NHS.

We expect you to have excellent human anatomy knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills and a willingness to develop your knowledge and skills in anatomy education. You will be supported in your training needs. This role offers you an exciting opportunity to develop your educational scholarship and research practice.
This job would be suitable for those seeking to obtain experience in, and further their knowledge and understanding of anatomy and medical education, or those with ambitions to develop and pursue a university clinical teaching role in the future. We welcome applications from those with either a medical/healthcare background or with formal human anatomy expertise and teaching experience.
Please demonstrate how you meet the Person Specification as cited in the job description.
Interviews are likely to take place in June and you will be notified if you have either been shortlisted or unsuccessful in your application.
We offer a competitive salary package and a generous pension and holiday scheme. We also offer a range of other benefits, including ongoing development opportunities.
A relocation package is available with this role.
This is a full-time position working 37 hours per week on a fixed-term basis due to business demand. Part-Time applications will also be considered.
Closing date: 12 midnight, Sunday 14 June 2020
The University of Plymouth is committed to equality of opportunity, promoting a diverse and inclusive culture, demonstrated through our commitment to the gender equality Athena SWAN Charter and as a Stonewall diversity champion. All applications will be judged solely on merit, however, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in the workforce, for example black and minority ethnic groups.
University of Plymouth holds a TEF (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework) Silver by the Office for Students.
The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry holds a Silver Athena Swan Award and the University holds a Bronze Athena SWAN Award which recognises commitment to advancing women’s careers in STEMM academia.
Applications are invited from trainees, from any clinical discipline, who are fully registered medical practitioners (with a licence to practice), are currently clinically active, and who have an interest in teaching clinical anatomy and medical education. You will be required to undertake teaching of medical students within the Human Anatomy Resource Centre (HARC), based on the main University campus. It will be expected that you will work with a team of academic staff to further develop and enhance anatomy teaching provision for the MBCHB programme in the School of Medicine. In addition, you will contribute to core School activities such as helping with admissions, assessment and student support. You will also be encouraged to participate in pedagogic research projects in medical education, in line with the strategic research interests of the School.
Whilst this is an education focussed post, if the successful candidate wanted to continue some clinical work, this could be discussed. The post has been designed to provide a clinical context to the teaching of anatomy in HARC. You will therefore need to demonstrate knowledge and experience of a variety of clinical subjects and how to relate these to anatomy. The post is fully funded by the School of Medicine. As either an out-of-programme experience or stand-alone experience, this post can equip you in your future career to lead and inspire in medical education. The post would be fixed term for one year in the first instance, but potentially subject to renewal. The post would be supported to develop as part of a team of Clinical Education Fellows within the University. For the right candidate(s), the FTE could be negotiable to fit in around other medical commitments and to accommodate up to two successful candidates. The minimum FTE split would be 0.2fte on fixed days to support the HARC related teaching, dependent on the other candidate being able to work 0.8fte on fixed days.
