Solent University has an ambitious research and knowledge exchange enabling strategy intended to ensure that the success of our students is shaped and inspired by our research and knowledge exchange. Building on our strengthening REF submissions, we are developing our research distinctiveness. In the next 5 years we intend to further grow our research culture by focusing on our core strengths and expertise within our research themes of environment, social issues and policy, sport and exercise science, and media and culture.
About the Role:
We are looking for a permanent Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Therapy to join a dedicated team across our successful Sport and Exercise Therapy suite. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an excellent understanding of the sports and exercise therapy landscape, across undergraduate and postgraduate levels and will be able to contribute to the continued success of this subject area. The successful candidates will be responsible for the effective and innovative development and delivery of related modules across the Department's Sport Therapy portfolio and will ensure the enhancement of the student experience and student employability.
The Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Therapy role is a permanent FT position, and it is expected that this person will support the strategic direction of the University and Department and will be expected to lead by example within the TEF/REF/KEF environments.
The university is driven to ensure our students are Future Ready, so the successful candidates will be expected to demonstrate a student-focused approach and ensure student successes are demonstrable across all OfS metrics within our state-of-the-art Sports Therapy clinics.
Qualifications and Skills required:
The successful candidate will hold a relevant doctoral level qualification, or be keen to complete and will have Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, or the ability to gain professional recognition at this or a higher level if appropriate. It is expected that the successful candidates will have full membership of The Society of Sports Therapists or equivalent professional body (e.g. CSP, or other international or British equivalent).
Experience of designing and planning effective learning activities; developing learning environments and proven experience in teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels, or demonstrable potential to engage in teaching and learning support in Higher Education in inspiring, engaging, and pioneering ways are essential for this post.
Applications for this challenging and exciting role are welcome from those who have an Honours degree and/or a postgraduate degree, in Sports Therapy, Physiotherapy or Sports Rehabilitation. A teaching qualification would be advantageous, but not essential as full training and qualification will be offered to the successful candidates.
Applications are welcomed from interested parties via a letter of application, which should be no longer than 2 sides of A4, together with a current CV.
For further information or the opportunity for an informal visit or discussion, please contact: Course Leader, Dr Lynsey Northeast (email@example.com) or Head of Department, Dr Dominic Cunliffe (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
