The University of Lincoln is embarking on an exciting partnership with the University of Nottingham to provide undergraduate medical education in Lincolnshire, at scale, for the first time. The first group of 95 medical students will begin their studies at the University of Lincoln’s Brayford Pool campus in September 2019, and the University is offering the opportunity for committed individuals to take up posts to help establish the teaching environment in the new medical school.
We are seeking to recruit talented academic staff in Anatomy, Behavioural Science, Biochemistry/Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology & Therapeutics, Physiology (2 posts), and Public Health/Social Determinants of Health. Within the group of successful applicants, we are keen to appoint staff with experience of teaching Embryology, Histology, Immunology and Microbiology. Depending on the skills and experience of the appointees, all posts may be offered on Teaching and Research (T&R) or Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice (TSPP) profile.
The University of Lincoln has an excellent reputation for providing an outstanding student experience, ranking 7th in the UK for overall satisfaction in the 2018 National Student Survey and 22nd overall in the Guardian University Guide 2019.Our modern campus sits beside the picturesque Brayford Pool marina, with views of the ancient castle and cathedral just beyond.
Working in new or newly-converted facilities until the new medical school building is complete in 2021, you will join a progressive, goal-oriented team of academic and professional services colleagues to deliver excellence in medical education and an outstanding student experience within the University of Nottingham’s Early Years and BMedSci medical curriculum model.
If you are looking for the challenge of establishing one of the UK’s new medical schools, with the potential to shape the hearts, minds and skills of the doctors of the future, this may be the opportunity for you.
Candidates who are shortlisted for interview will be notified in early January 2019.
Applications are invited from trainees, from any clinical discipline, who are fully registered medical practitioners 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.
The hours of the post are negotiable to fit in around other medical commitments and job share would be considered to accommodate up to two successful candidates. The minimum FTE split would be 0.2 FTE on fixed days to support the HARC related teaching, dependent on the other candidate being able to work 0.8 FTE on fixed days.
The post is available from February 2019, initially for 1 year.
