The exact timings will be determined in line with the successful candidate’s research and teaching areas and will be agreed between the academic manager, clinical manager and post-holder. Suitable office space and facilities with IT access will be made available at both the Belfast HSC Trust and the University sites as required.

The successful candidate must have:

  • Minimum of 2 years clinical Learning Disability nursing experience within the last 5 years.
