Since 2023, the University of Lincoln has offered a MSc Speech and Language Therapy (pre-registration) programme as part of our graduate-entry qualifying degrees. We have an exciting opportunity for a registered Speech and Language Therapist to join our academic team as our first cohort nears completion of their studies, in January 2025. This is your opportunity to influence the future of our profession, through delivery of an innovative programme.

We are looking for a Speech and Language Therapist with clinical, teaching, or research experience related to communication needs in adulthood (associate with both acquired and lifespan conditions). Previous experience of teaching adult learners, supporting practice learning or teaching in higher education would be advantageous. If you also have an interest in contributing to learning opportunities around Eating, Drinking, and Swallowing needs, this would be particularly valuable.

Your role would include supporting the learning and assessment of first- and second-year students, module leadership within the second year curriculum, being a personal tutor, and contributing to interprofessional teaching within the School.

The School of Health and Social Care offers a range of undergraduate, post- graduate degrees and post-registration continuous professional development programmes. We have an income of over £11m, 120 academic staff and over 1800 students registered on the School's programmes across Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Paramedic Science, Diagnostic Radiography, Health and Social Care, and Research.
