Job Summary

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Practice is offering an exciting opportunity for a suitably experienced and qualified professional to join our team as a Lecturer in Adult Nursing. Our vision is to provide dynamic and transformational learning, teaching and research that makes a leading contribution to improving the health and well-being of local, national and global communities. The School of Nursing,  Midwifery and Paramedic Practice is a vibrant academic community and the only higher education provider of its kind in the North East of Scotland. The School is housed in a state of the art building with resources designed to simulate both clinical and community settings providing a stimulating learning environment.

As a Lecturer you would provide high quality education to both pre–registration students and postgraduate health care professionals.  You will join an experienced and motivated team of academics, providing support for teaching and learning across the School’s portfolio of courses and modules. You will be required to develop, deliver and evaluate learning, teaching and assessment across a range of modules within the School. As well as this, you will develop and use a range of skills to provide pastoral support for students as a personal tutor as well as engaging in collaborative working with other academics, practice learning partners and a range of people and communities to enhance the school portfolio and student experience.

We aim to engage with key partners to plan, conduct and disseminate high quality research that is of value to society, those using health and social care services, and the professions of nursing, midwifery and paramedic practice. There are opportunities to undertake applied research in health and social care policy, education and clinical practice which in turn impacts on the health and wellbeing of people, families and communities.

With knowledge, experience and skills as well as a degree in a relevant subject (achievement of MSc or PhD or working towards is desirable), the successful candidate will be a committed and motivated professional who will contribute to the wider School portfolio which includes undergraduate and postgraduate nursing, midwifery and paramedic education as well as CPD / commercialisation activities.

This is a full-time position but we will consider different and flexible contract types, such as part-time working. Whilst we are focussed on educating the next generation of nurses, midwives and paramedics, we welcome enquiries from both Registered Nurses and non-nurses who have demonstrable expertise and experience in alternative settings. We also appreciate the desire of some lecturers to retain skills in their current area of practice so we may consider part and full-time secondments from current roles.

Grade 7 Salary Scale: £34,804 – 40,322
Grade 8 Salary Scale: £41,526 – 49,553
Salary on appointment will be dependent upon experience.

Candidates with limited or no prior experience as an academic will be placed on the first point of the Grade 7 scale. Consideration will be given to offering an Academic Attraction Payment (adjusted annually) for those candidates who have specific industry knowledge, skills or, expertise which are required for the position. Please see the job attachments for further information regarding the Grade 7 and Grade 8 criteria.  Further guidance on Academic Attraction Payments can be found here.

Relocation Assistance is available, subject to conditions.
