Senior Lecturer in Physiology
Application closing date
Grade: I (£44,706 - £51,799)
The University of Central Lancashire and American University of the Caribbean
School of Medicine have put together a new programme aimed at helping ease the
global shortage of doctors. The two institutions linked up in 2017 when almost
the entire contingent of the AUC School of Medicine re-located to UCLan while
their base on the island of St Maarten was rebuilt following hurricane Irma.
Now, UCLan and the AUC have joined forces to offer a new blended programme, to
enable students from the UK and across the world to study towards their
accredited medical qualification, the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree - the
postgraduate degree of physicians in the United States. UCLan's School of
Medicine runs the 2-year programme, which commenced in September 2019,
providing students with a postgraduate diploma in International Medical
Sciences (PGIMS) from UCLan, followed by their MD with AUC. Students will
then be eligible to do clinical rotations at AUCs clinical sites, which
include hospitals in the US and the UK.
As part of this exciting development, the University is seeking to appoint
Senior Lecturer in Physiology. Working within a committed and enthusiastic
team you will contribute to the course planning, teaching, and assessment as
well as providing module leadership. You will hold a good honours degree in a
relevant subject and a PhD in related area. Applicants should have recent
evidence of scientific publications and conference presentations.
We are seeking suitably qualified candidates with experience of higher
education teaching, enthusiasm for your subject and the ability to teach up to
Masters level. Knowledge of USMLE teaching to medical students and a teaching
qualification such as fellowship of the HEA is desirable.
The successful candidate will have a flexible & innovative approach to
teaching and excellent presentation, networking & communications skills.

Lead (firstname.lastname@example.org ) via email.
