Lecturer in Physiotherapy
The School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences (SRES)
The School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences was created in August 2017 bringing together sport and exercise sciences, physiotherapy, sports therapy and related activity. This presents exciting opportunities for new interdisciplinary collaborations and partnership working with external agencies including a range of health practitioners.
We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Physiotherapy to complement the existing staff and contribute to the two very successful pre-registration physiotherapy degrees. A new physiotherapy curriculum is currently being developed with stakeholders for delivery from 2020.
Duties of the Role
We wish to develop the School’s research in physiotherapy and rehabilitation and as such, you will be expected to make a significant contribution to this aspiration, along with contributing to the delivery of learning and teaching within the School, primarily supporting the physiotherapy educational provision.
You will assess feedback to learners in evidence informed ways, and develop a research agenda which pursues individual and/or collaborative research objectives and proposals of high quality that will as a minimum meet the University’s expectations for future Research Exercise Framework (REF) exercises.
Additionally, you will generate external research funding and supervise student projects, fieldwork and placements, along with supervising postgraduate taught students appropriate for the discipline.
A full list of key responsibilities and main duties (Education, Research and Leadership and Citizenship) can be found within the respective job packs below.
Skills and Qualifications required
The successful candidate will have a relevant doctoral level research degree in Physiotherapy or equivalent professional experience or practice or be close to completion of PhD and will have Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, or the ability to gain professional recognition at this or a higher level if appropriate. You will also be registered as a Physiotherapist with the Health and Care Professions Council.
You will have proven experience in teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels or demonstrable potential to engage in teaching and learning support, and of designing and planning learning activities. You will be able to demonstrate evidence of a clear publication plan for submission to future Research Excellence Framework (REF) programmes, and evidence of a research agenda, engagement in high-quality research activity and a developing research profile.
Demonstrable experience in one of more of the following areas of physiotherapy practice is required: paediatrics, older people, health promotion, cardiorespiratory, neurology or mental health.
