The Leicester School of Pharmacy has an excellent reputation for the delivery of both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. You will join an enthusiastic team working in modern teaching and research facilities. The School invites applications from highly motivated individuals to lead the School’s developing TNE activities. The successful candidate will be part of the School Executive team, provide leadership for the development of international partnerships and will be responsible for the delivery of teaching as well as engaging in research and ongoing programme development.

To be successful, you will have a PhD in pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences or closely related area and have excellent leadership skills, with the ability to motivate and influence others and foster an inclusive culture within your subject area and across the institution. You will be expected to contribute to research and consultancy income generation within the Faculty and produce publications in an area relevant to Unit of Assessment 3 in REF2021. We place high value on contributions to academic citizenship activity in the School.

You may apply for the role of Associate Professor via any one of the three career pathways: research and innovation; teaching, learning and scholarship or a hybrid of the two.

Research and innovation focussed Associate Professors will be research active, demonstrating visibility and impact with evidence of a growing national or international reputation in the relevant subject area. You will have a proven track record of research excellence evidenced through high quality publications and other relevant outputs such as income generation, consultancy, knowledge exchange and successful collaborations.

Teaching, learning and scholarship focussed Associate Professors will be externally recognised teachers of excellence, with proven curriculum development and delivery expertise. You will be responsible for developing and managing teaching and learning activities which cater for students from diverse backgrounds and have an influence on the pedagogy of the subject area.

Associate Professors in a Hybrid role will undertake both teaching and research (or research related) activities. You will therefore be both a highly accomplished teacher with proven expertise in the delivery of learning and development, and also research active and/or involved in commercial, consultancy or knowledge exchange activities.
