Job description

Lecturer in Health Technology Innovation & Assessment

Edinburgh Napier University’s School of Health and Social Care is a vibrant academic community with over 120 colleagues, all committed to the delivery of outstanding quality research and education with impact. We are committed to collaborative interdisciplinary working between four key subject disciplines:

Allied Health & Social Work
Health & Social Care Sciences

Join our team!

We are seeking to recruit a Lecturer in Health Technology Innovation & Assessment with a national academic reputation in this important subject discipline.

If you have a Doctorate and are a health professional or health services researcher with a passion for health technology research, innovation, and assessment then this is the role for you! We are seeking an individual with a growing track record of research income generation and high-quality research publications in this field. You will join a team of highly experienced academic staff within the School of Health and Social Care and have the opportunity to work collaboratively with other academic colleagues across the University (e.g. health professionals, laboratory scientists, engineers, computer scientists and others).

You will also work closely with our Professor of Health Technology, Innovation and Assessment and other colleagues in our two new research centres being developed in the School focused on cardiovascular health and mental health practice, policy and law. A fully funded PhD studentship has been allocated to support the research of the successful candidate.

The key focus of this role is research; however, you will be a member of the Health and Social Care Sciences Subject Group and have an opportunity teach on our new suite of Post graduate programmes, which includes an MSc in digital health.

You will be supported in the role to further develop your own academic career through access to a range of resources available to all University staff and through a coaching approach to personal development.

We work in an inclusive way and can support flexible and remote working.

If you’re excited at the prospect of joining our fantastic interprofessional team then we’d love to receive an application from you!

Essential requirements

  • Current registration with the relevant Professional Statutory Regulatory Body for the role
  • Doctoral level qualification (or very near completion)
  • Demonstrable evidence of teaching, assessing and supporting learners in a higher education and/or clinical practice setting

  • Commitment to sustained continuous professional/academic development.
  • Experience of working clinically

Desirable requirements

  • Post-graduate certificate in higher education or equivalent.
  • Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy or a strong willingness to achieve membership within 2 years of appointment
  • Evidence of applying for external funding.
