As Northern Ireland’s civic University, Ulster is grounded in the heart of the community and strives to make a lasting contribution to society. Renowned for its world-class teaching, Ulster aims to transform lives, stretch minds and develop the skills required by a growing economy. 

This is an exciting time for the University as we develop our new School of Medicine: our aim is to deliver Graduate Entry Medical Education as a means of widening access to medicine in Northern Ireland, seeking to produce doctors who are locally focussed, globally ambitious change agents who will work in and lead teams to improve the health of their patients and the wider community. 

The creation of the new School offers a unique opportunity for the successful candidate to join a team of like-minded medical educators. The post is a key early appointment to the School allowing the successful applicant to play a pivotal part in shaping our educational delivery. We are seeking capable team players who are willing to explore new ways of delivery and who are enthused by the prospect of being involved in establishing a new School. 

The successful candidate will work closely with the Foundation Dean and Director of Education to design, develop and deliver an imaginative and integrated approach to the learning of Health Ethics and Law for medical students such that graduates of the School will understand the legal and ethical requirements of clinical practice in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.  

The focus of the School is educational excellence and, as such, will require partnership working with colleagues throughout the University and with a wide range of stakeholders.  The University has a global research profile to complement its strong educational achievements and maintenance of research activity is also supported and encouraged.
