 A Teaching Associate post is available in the School of Physiology, Pharmacology & Neuroscience. The role contributes to the delivery, development and assessment of physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience and histology teaching (and teaching-related activities) provided by the School within undergraduate medical, dental, veterinary science programmes and a range of BSc programmes. 

An important aspect of the job is to enthusiastically illustrate the concepts, relevance and application of physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience and histology to the study of medicine, dentistry, veterinary science and the biomedical sciences in general through drawing on the role holder’s recent professional experience, either clinical or postdoctoral and preferably together with relevant teaching experience.

Teaching will mainly involve demonstrating in practical classes (including leading some classes), leading small group tutorials and the associated assessment.

You should have recent clinical experience at a junior level; or recent postdoctoral experience together with a contribution to university teaching.  A good knowledge of physiology/neuroscience/ pharmacology/histology to second year undergraduate level is essential.  In addition, you should hold a teaching qualification (or equivalent documented experience) preferably related to higher education and a relevant clinical qualification (MBChB / MBBS / BDS / BVSc or equivalent) with post-qualification experience relevant to this role or undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline with a PhD and some postdoctoral experience in research.
