The University is set in the heart of the beautiful, safe and friendly city of Lincoln.  The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious and international institution with high aspirations and strong record of widening participation in Higher Education.

The creation of the new Foundation Studies Centre – Science, is a milestone in the development of the University of Lincoln and is based within the College of Science.  The Centre’s focus is to provide Foundation Year programmes, in preparation for students to transition onto the major degree programmes offered by the College, within the Schools of Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics, Pharmacy and Medicine.

The University, working in partnership with the University of Nottingham was recently successful in a bid to establish a new Medical School in Lincoln. The programmes to be offered from September 2019 include a foundation pathway (1 year) to the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Science degree (BMBS - 5 years).

We are therefore seeking talented scientists to contribute to the teaching of relevant elements of biology to both the BMBS foundation year and science foundation students in the wider studies centre.  A strong track record in developing and delivering innovative A level (FHEQ level 3) or equivalent curricula in Biology will be an advantage.

Applications are strongly encouraged from individuals within the Secondary and Further Education sectors as well as those currently within Higher Education.

The successful applicant will report to the Head of Foundation Year Studies, Kerry Blagden, who is herself an experienced transition support practitioner, with extensive experience in the secondary and HE sectors.  The successful candidate will need to be able to commence in role at Easter 2019.

Please contact Kerry Blagden within the College of Science on +44 (01522) 835733 or email kblagden@lincoln.ac.uk for an informal conversation about this opportunity. 

As an institutional Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder we are committed to advancing gender equality in STEM, therefore female applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.

Closing date: 27th November 2018
