To support the delivery of its pre-registration MSc Physiotherapy, SHES is seeking to appoint an experienced and committed individual to a 0.5fte Teaching Fellow in Physiotherapy role for a 12-month period (or early return of substantive post holder) to cover a maternity absence.

The successful candidate will engage in teaching, assessment, supervision, and tutoring of students across the MSc Physiotherapy (and where appropriate additional clinical sport, health, and exercise) provision and be primarily located within the school-wide Physical Activity, Health, and Rehabilitation (PAHR) theme, and University-wide Health and Wellbeing theme. Candidates will be a registered practitioner with the Health and Care Professions Council, and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals with NHS experience, who can evidence broad experience across clinical practice, support placement activities and the vocational relevance of our curriculum pathways in accordance with University strategy and School thematic strengths. The team covers musculoskeletal, respiratory, and neurological aspects of Physiotherapy in an integrated manner and there is no current preference for the area of expertise held by the successful candidate.

We welcome applications from individuals who may not have held previous formal teaching posts but have relevant clinical experience. We will provide support as required in gaining relevant teaching qualifications.
