Senior Lecturer Occupational Therapy

Kingston University - Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education

The Role

This is your chance to join the collaborative team in our Rehabilitation Sciences Department. You will be primarily involved in evidence informed teaching on the pre-registration BSc and MSc physiotherapy programmes and the BSc Occupational therapy programme from September 2017 (subject to approval Dec 2016).

You will be particularly involved developing curriculum and teaching in relation to neurological and cognitive perceptual impairment, communication skills and models of rehabilitation including self-management. The post includes supporting students on placement, and involves travelling to clinical sites.

You will also be involved in research or scholarly activity within the School or Faculty and helping support undergraduate and postgraduate research projects. The post has arisen out of promotion from within the team to other areas of activity in the Faculty, and anticipated requirements for a new programme. A professional lead in Occupational Therapy is being recruited concurrently.

The Person

You will understand the needs of learners and be encouraging and supportive. You will have experience of Occupational Therapy practice with strengths in neurological and cognitive perceptual impairment.

You will have an understanding of theories and models that influence Occupational Therapy/ professional practice and rehabilitation and how these might be applied in contemporary practice and education. You will have experience of evaluating practice and undertaking research. This is a great opportunity for an adaptable and creative individual who is comfortable within an interprofessional team.
