Are you interested in using your extensive mobile application development skills in an innovative medical education and research environment? Are you enthusiastic and ambitious with a desire to be part of an interdisciplinary team delivering high quality mobile application services to support student education and research?

You will play a key role within the Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team, to support and build upon our mobile learning programme. Our vision for Technology Enhanced Learning blends the best of traditional face-to-face teaching with the use of the latest technology to support the best possible student experience. Our work encompasses both development and research, as we design and evaluate our systems to help us to build a better understanding of how our students learn and the role that new technologies can play in supporting them.

Working with a wide range of stakeholders across the University and NHS, you will be responsible for delivering and supporting technology enhanced learning services and systems, with a focus on mobile application development. You will work within interdisciplinary teams on each project and be responsible for leading the mobile developments to deliver new or improved technology enhanced learning services and systems. These systems will be used within the medical education programmes and will contribute to our ongoing TEL research work as their use and impact is evaluated.

You will have expert knowledge of iOS and Android development processes including experience of mobile app development for iOS using Objective-C and Xcode and for Android using Java and Android Studio. Use of C#, Xamarin and Visual Studio in cross-platform mobile development, and experience in web services using C# & ASP.NET is essential. Working in a highly regulated environment, your work will also involve liaising with University IT services and ensuring services comply with regulatory requirements through adherence to standard operating procedures. You will also use your experience to provide support and guidance to other members of the team, sharing your expertise and supporting others to develop new skills.
