Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Cell and Molecular Biology

University of Brighton - School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences

You will teach and assess diverse aspects of cellular and molecular biology, with an emphasis on the mechanisms of human disease. As the successful candidate, you will be committed to educating students from foundation to masters level using a mixture of traditional and innovative teaching methods. The majority of your teaching will be on human biology modules which contribute to the Biomedical Science undergraduate programme. However, you should expect to have students from a diverse range of degree programmes in your classes including Biological Sciences and Chemistry. Some teaching at our Hastings campus will also be required and you may be asked to contribute to other programmes including Pharmacy and our masters courses. Academic staff at Brighton support student learning through open, friendly, student-centred attitudes.

You will be expected to establish a research programme at Brighton which complements and enhances our existing work in the general area of the biology of human disease. Laboratory space will be provided as appropriate along with a start-up package and access to the School’s excellent research infrastructure. Collaborations with other academics within the University and the Brighton Sussex Medical School are encouraged. The University has a variety of internal competitively awarded grants to support research and you will be provided with a research mentor to support your growth as a research-active academic.

All staff participate in the administration of teaching and research within the School, for example through the leadership of modules and participation in committee work. The School will endeavour to keep your administrative load light in the first year to enable you to develop your teaching and research. We have an aspiration that all staff in the School will be qualified in higher education teaching at a level equivalent to Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. Staff without formal teaching qualifications will be expected to complete the University’s postgraduate certificate in higher education teaching or apply for an HEA fellowship via the portfolio route (depending on their prior teaching experience).

The School is proud to hold a Bronze Athena SWAN award and aspires to achieve a Silver award in the near future. We welcome applications from suitably qualified individuals from groups currently under-represented on our staff.

The University of Brighton is committed to equality and embraces diversity in our working, learning, research and teaching environment. We welcome all applicants and are committed to providing a supportive and flexible working environment.
