These posts are part of an exciting initiative which seeks to professionalise medical education and allow doctors in training the opportunity to develop their own teaching skills and educational expertise. Usually these posts are undertaken as an out of training programme experience, but may be suitable for those before commencing or after completion of a training programme.
The Clinical Lecturer (Scholarship) scheme has been running for twenty-two years and the posts are designed for individuals who have a keen interest in teaching and who wish to pursue a career with an emphasis on education and training; they are not primarily for service delivery of teaching. Opportunities for involvement in all aspects of medical education, including strategic planning and research, will be provided.
You will join the Institute of Education In Healthcare and Medical Sciences as one of a team of academic, administrative and clerical staff who support the medicine degree programme. Five of the posts are based in the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition on the Foresterhill campus, Aberdeen, and one in the Highland Medical Education Centre (HMEC), UHI House on the Raigmore campus, Inverness. The Highland post would be supported by UoA Director of Teaching and would work collaboratively with a number of NHS Clinical Fellows also based in HMEC as well as with the Aberdeen based team.
Salary will be at the appropriate point on the Clinical scale for Academics below level of Consultant, £43,504 - £76,942 and negotiable with placement according to qualifications and experience.
Informal enquiries should be made to Dr Angus Cooper, Director of Clinical Skills (firstname.lastname@example.org), Professor Colin Lumsden, MBChB Programme Lead (email@example.com) or Dr Morven Wilson, Highland Director of Teaching (Undergraduate) (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Should you require a visa to undertake employment in the UK you will be required to fulfil the minimum points criteria to be granted a Certificate of Sponsorship under the requirements of the Skilled Worker visa. At the time an offer of appointment is made, you will be asked to demonstrate that you fulfil the criteria in respect of qualification and competency in English. For research and academic posts, we will consider eligibility under the Global Talent visa. Please do not hesitate to contact Grant Rae, HR Adviser (e-mail: email@example.com) for further information.

They are funded from NHS Grampian’s and NHS Highland’s ACT moneys.
