Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutics

University of Brighton - School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences

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 modules which contribute to our Pharmacy (MPharm) and Pharmaceutical and Chemical Sciences undergraduate programmes.  However, you may be asked to teach on other courses including Biomedical Science, Chemistry 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 pharmaceutics and/or pharmaceutical chemistry.   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.  Work with industrial partners is valued and you will be encouraged to develop relationships with pharmaceutical companies and other relevant external organisations.  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 engage 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 an Athena SWAN Bronze 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. Job sharers welcome.

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.
