University College London - UCL Ear Institute

The salary range will be Grade 8 (£42,304 - £49,904 per annum) / Grade 9 (£54,240 - £58,978 per annum), inclusive of London Allowance.

The UCL Ear Institute is seeking to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Audiology to undertake and advance audiological research and teaching. The Ear Institute is a multi-disciplinary centre dedicated to understanding the mechanisms of hearing and the causes of deafness.

The post holder will work closely with research and teaching staff at the Ear Institute and clinicians at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital and other NHS hospitals to deliver innovative research and teaching. Responsibilities of the post include successful advancement of an independent audiological research programme; leadership of clinical audiology programmes as a Module Coordinator and/or Programme Director; supervision of postgraduate student research projects at PhD, MRes, and MSc levels; and provision of pastoral and tutorial support to students.

This is a full-time role, but we may consider a part-time arrangement (0.8 FTE, 29.2 hours per week) for candidates who wish to maintain 0.2 FTE of existing clinical duties.

The ideal candidate will have an in-depth understanding of current theoretical issues in audiology and audiological practice worldwide, and an extensive knowledge of diagnostic audiology assessment and rehabilitation. Essential requirements of the role include extensive clinical experience in the NHS or other healthcare sector, along with a strong record of disseminating research and/or teaching via clinical groups, conference presentations and publications in journals.

The successful candidate will have a recognised postgraduate qualification in Audiology (or related discipline), e.g. PhD or equivalent advanced degree.

Evidence of leadership in the design and delivery of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) materials, experience of teaching and assessment within an Higher Education Institution (HEI) setting, and experience of delivering teaching using innovative methods (including distance learning) would be desirable.
