Description 
The Department of Clinical Sciences and Nutrition wish to appoint a suitable individual to the position of Lecturer in Nutrition & Dietetics. This is an exciting opportunity to make a substantial contribution to the field of nutrition and dietetics, and inspire the potential workforce of the future. 

The department is one of the largest providers of postgraduate nutrition programmes in the UK and has been responsible for delivering dietetics education and training on behalf of the North West region since 2002. 

We are looking for a registered dietitian who may have some prior experience of teaching, learning, and assessment in higher education, which can be developed further, and who is passionate about training dietitians. You will also have insight into, and a desire for, a career as a clinical academic.  

You will contribute to teaching, learning, and assessment on both the BSc and the MSc Nutrition and Dietetics programmes and, as appropriate, may contribute to the delivery of other programmes including Weight Management or Human Nutrition. 

We require candidates to hold a degree in nutrition and dietetics, HCPC Dietetics registration, previous experience of teaching and learning in higher education and (preferably) a Masters or higher degree. A previous record of working with clinical trainers is essential and an emerging or developing research profile desirable.   

The University of Chester is consistently improving its presence and position within various national higher education rankings. The Department consists of high profile leading edge practitioners and academics with aspirations to create new provision and research in the field. Considerable opportunities for career progression also exist.
