We are looking to recruit into a new interdisciplinary team for research and teaching in Healthcare Sciences. Recognising the need for crossing disciplinary boundaries, taking advantage of current innovations whilst developing new solutions, the University of Manchester has invested over £5 million over 5 years for a new Integrated Interdisciplinary Innovations in Healthcare Science (I3HS) Hub that will be led by Prof Kay Marshall, Head of the School of Health Sciences. The new Hub will focus on teaching / capacity building and research in the field of integrated medicine and interdisciplinary sciences for health and social care. It is a School led initiative to increase capacity in data sciences, public health and integrated medicine through increasing teaching and research opportunities across all three Faculties and external stakeholders.
Integrated interdisciplinary sciences strengths at the University cover a broad area - including bio-health informatics, clinical bioinformatics, machine learning, data mining, biostatistics, health economics, public health and primary care. Links with clinical specialities and disciplines are well formed to facilitate the right research questions are answered, research-led teaching and training activities are co-created and capacity building is undertaken. The strong links across the University will be used to co-create research-led teaching and training activities.
A key focus of this Lecturer post will be to support the development of the new teaching materials and to ensure that the Hub makes full use of new technological innovations in delivery and assessment of teaching materials. A second key role will be to ensure that appropriate pedagogic strategies are used in the delivery of large scale interdisciplinary training to a complex range of learners. In addition, you will be expected to support teaching development across the range of courses being developed by the Hub.
You should have a PhD or demonstrable significant experience in a related subject area of Public Health and Epidemiology. Experience of teaching Public Health/Epidemiology using online, face to face and blended methods and experience of devising innovative solutions for delivery of teaching is required. Excellent presentation and communication skills and the ability to lecture and teach to a high standard to undergraduate and postgraduate levels are both essential.
Please note that we are also advertising for two teaching and research Lecturer posts to be part of the same I3HS Hub team – see advert here: https://www.jobs.manchester.ac.uk/displayjob.aspx?jobid=16300
