Senior Lecturer Physiotherapy

Kingston University

This is your chance to join the collaborative team in our Rehabilitation Sciences Department. You will be primarily involved in evidence informed teaching primarily on the pre-registration BSc and MSc physiotherapy programmes and helping support cardio-respiratory teaching. 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 of Faculty, including supervising student projects. The post has arisen out of promotion from within the team to other areas of activity in the Faculty.

The Person

A person who is experienced in teaching at some level, with an interest in developing knowledge and skills in higher education teaching. You will understand the needs of learners and be encouraging and supportive. You will have knowledge and experience of cardio-respiratory function, the impact of dysfunction on individuals, and therapeutic and other management principles. You will also have experience of undertaking research and preferably with experience of supervision. This is a great opportunity for an adaptable team-player who is creative and can think outside the box.

The Faculty

The Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education is a unique partnership between Kingston University and St George’s, University of London, to offer preregistration and post-qualifying courses in education, allied health and social work.

With more than 3,000 students based at campuses in Kingston and Tooting, the Faculty offers courses in education, nursing, midwifery, paramedic science, radiography, rehabilitation sciences, and social work; as well as a range of workforce development modules programmes and CPD.
