This is an opportunity to join a dedicated group of academics in the Department of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences which run a varied programme of research-led accredited courses, complementing most aspects of the pharmaceutical industry, from drug discovery through to market authorisation.
Your role will be to develop and deliver industrially focused education in pharmaceutical science and closely related areas. You will plan, deliver and assess a range of modules at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the above and related areas, using a variety of approaches. This will include classroom and practical work in our modern, well equipped laboratories. It is expected that you will establish an independent programme of research and or enterprise activity. You will play an active role in the work of the department outside the classroom – for example outreach, open days and personal tutoring.
You will use your subject experience to promote integrated professional practice, imparting practical scientific knowledge, and real-world skills to students making them sought after in their future careers.
The successful applicant will therefore have academic and preferably industrial experience in pharmaceutics and drug delivery. Some experience of pharmaceutical regulatory affairs would be welcomed. In addition to your undergraduate degree, you will hold a doctorate in a relevant discipline and for the Senior Lecturer level you will have significant relevant industrial experience. You will also be a flexible team worker responsive to needs of the department.
By the end of the probation period, you must have achieved the relevant level of UKPSF recognition (if this has not already been obtained). For those new to teaching, this will be through our accredited Introduction to Learning and Teaching and for those experienced in teaching, through our Kingston Academic Practice Standards Framework.
The Faculty offers wide ranging practice-based education and training programmes across nursing, health science, midwifery, social care and teaching which are informed by high quality and impactful research.
This is a full time, fixed term position for 2 years.
We are looking to appoint at a starting salary of £42,182 per annum for a Lecturer or £47,004 per annum for a Senior Lecturer, depending on the skills and experience of the successful applicant.
Interviews are expected to be held on Friday 4th August 2023.
For informal enquiries, please contact Baljit Thatti, Head of Department of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
