    The University of Northampton is seeking an inspirational Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Health Sciences specialising in Public Health and Epidemiology. The successful applicant will teach within the Science Subject area of the Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology, and join our expanding Health Sciences team. You will have expertise and experience teaching and researching in public health and epidemiology and the ability to teach across the wider subject area and experience of research supervision would be advantageous.

Research and scholarship are supported through our research centres, mentor scheme, and 25 days' scholarly leave.

    We want you to be able to carry out your work in a way that best supports UON and our students, but also you as an individual. We understand this may vary between different areas of the university as well as from one person to another. With Smarter Working you can work with increased flexibility, if you would like to, which can facilitate greater freedom and autonomy.

    About you

    You will have a good background in public health and/or related areas, and have experience in the delivery of high-quality teaching and assessment materials. You will have experience of teaching and use of learning technologies and ideally hold a relevant teaching qualification.

    The successful candidate will be ICT literate and have experience in leading modules and programmes in HE settings. A track record of effective partnership working (internal and external) to develop scholarship and employability opportunities would be advantageous.

    You will be highly disciplined, organised, supportive, and able to work collegiately within a team. The ability to produce research publications, successful grant applications, and/or generate income, would be welcomed.



  • Degree qualification or equivalent in relevant subject
  • Master's degree in relevant subject
  • Professional Recognition as HEA Fellow (D2) or teaching qualification recognised by HESA, or willingness to obtain within an agreed timescale
  • Desirable:

  • Doctorate in relevant subject, completed or within 12 months of completion
  • Relevant professional qualification
  • Faculty

    You will join a friendly and collegiate team, based in the Faculty of Arts, Science & Technology, with an embedded culture of student-focused teaching and high impact research. This is a particularly good time to join us at the University, having recently achieved Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework.

    The University recently moved to our £330 million Waterside Campus based in Northampton Town. Therefore, you will benefit from purpose-built teaching and research facilities, a supportive team, and well established and sustainable links with our regional partners.

    About Us

    Come to the University of Northampton and you will see that we do things a bit differently.

    We are one of the youngest universities in the UK but we are already leading the way in adding value to society, which we call social impact. We have won multiple awards for our work in this area, among others, but what matters the most to us is ensuring that our students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark on the world too. That's why we were the first university in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012.

    We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. This has led us to build a whole new University from the ground up that is designed to reflect the way that students actually learn rather than the way they are expected to learn. Waterside Campus opened in September 2018.

    Our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of all that we do.

    Right to Work

    All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview.


    The University of Northampton is committed to providing a vibrant, ethical and sustainable work, study and living environment that values equality, diversity and inclusion.
