The School of Health and Social Care is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Social Work to support its expanding provision of social work education and to complement our existing strengths in teaching, research, and professional practice.

The University of Lincoln has been named as the Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.

Located in the College of Social Science (with the Schools of Psychology, Sports and Exercise Science, Education, Social and Political Sciences and the Lincoln Law School), the School of Health and Social Care offers a well-established range of undergraduate, post-graduate degrees, apprenticeships and post qualifying and post registration stand-alone programmes. The School of Health and Social Care is forward thinking and ambitious with plans to further develop education for health, social care and social work professionals at all academic levels. A significant feature of the School of Health and Social Care is its commitment to interprofessional learning, with cross teaching and collaboration.

We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer who is registered social worker, with experience of supporting and developing colleagues and/or students in teaching and learning.
