Senior Lecturer in Nursing (Emergency and Critical Care)

University of the West of England, Bristol - Department of Nursing and Midwifery

The Department of Nursing and Midwifery is looking to appoint an exceptional Senior Lecturer who can contribute to outstanding teaching and learning and research in Emergency and Critical Care.

The University of the West of England is continuing its success in REF 2014 by creating a number of ‘New Blood’ posts for exceptional individuals to provide exciting opportunities to progress our 2020 strategic goals of ‘Research with Impact’ and ‘Outstanding Learning’.

For the first three years you will divide your time 50:50 between emergency and critical care research and teaching on our undergraduate, postgraduate and workforce development programmes in nursing, as appropriate. This will enable you to establish a strong, balanced profile in the longer term, combining teaching and research. You will be provided with appropriate training, support and mentoring.

You will be responsible for developing and integrating research activities (grant writing, project supervision, publications) and teaching activities (undergraduate, postgraduate and workforce development). The broad aims are to develop a personal profile of emergency and critical care research as a member of our established research theme, and a teaching profile that facilitates the integration of research into educational programmes.

We have offices at UWE Bristol’s Health and Social Care campus at Glenside, where most of our nursing education is delivered, and at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.

The Emergency and Critical Care research theme has a strong track record of grant funded research and high impact publications, and in the past five years has been awarded two silver IDEAs (International Design Excellence Awards) for design research in pre-hospital care. There is also close integration with researchers from Bristol University and the Bristol Health Partners Health Integration Teams in avoidable hospital admissions, childhood injury and dementia.

We have strong links with patient and public groups and the West of England Academic Health Sciences Network.

This post requires an enhanced DBS clearance.

Other benefits, in addition to salary:

  • a generous holiday allowance of 35 days
  • in addition to annual leave you will be entitled to up to 12.5 bank holiday/closure days;
  • flexible working;
  • excellent defined benefit pension schemes with a generous employer contribution
  • option to participate in the cycle to work scheme;
  • family friendly policies;
  • option to purchase childcare vouchers.

We're a dynamic and modern university proudly responsible for preparing 27,000 students from 140 countries to take their next steps. With strong global and local connections, we offer an inspiring, diverse work environment where you can develop your skills and experience alongside over 3,000 staff members passionate about higher education.

UWE is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity to create an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who share our ambition to be a university recognised for the success and impact of our practice-oriented programmes; our strong industry networks and our inclusive global outlook.
