Senior Lecturer in Physiotherapy

£38,459 to £48,677 with opportunity to progress to £53,174 


 Full time, permanent

 We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced physiotherapist to join the Department of Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Nutritional Therapy in the School of Allied Health and Community. You will join a friendly and supportive team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and nutritional therapists, who play key roles in the delivery and on-going development of the courses in the Department. Responsibilities for the post will include leading modules and teaching on the Physiotherapy course, especially (but not exclusively) relating to cardio-vascular and respiratory practice across all 3 years. We expect and encourage all staff to participate in a variety of modules in physiotherapy, and other disciplines, at under-graduate and post-graduate level where relevant.

The physiotherapy and occupational therapy staff work as an inter-professional team, teaching collaboratively across shared and profession specific modules at all academic levels and you will be expected to share this philosophy. You will also play a part in practice education, with students and other staff, and will undertake practice visits. As a student-centred inclusive university, your role will include being a Personal and Academic Tutor, to support and encourage students to achieve their potential. You will also supervise students with their independent study and participate in admissions and recruitment events where we work collaboratively with our colleagues in IMPACT, the university service-user group, who support teaching, recruitment, and curriculum development.  In addition, the post holder will be expected to play an active role within the School, which may include involvement in the delivery of CPD activity across a range of programmes. All staff are expected to engage in research and scholarly activity to enhance their own professional and academic development. Candidates are expected to highlight their areas of expertise in practice and how they intend to further this through scholarship and research.
