Job description

The School of Pharmacy at Queen’s University Belfast, is currently seeking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the post of Lecturer (Education) in Clinical Pharmacy.

The School of Pharmacy has an ambitious five-year strategy for development of education and research, building on our excellent reputation. Currently we are in the global top 100 in the QS World University rankings by subject. Moreover, the University has recently opened the cutting edge KN Cheung SK Chin InterSim Centre which will enable future healthcare professionals to learn and work together to provide safe, effective, and collaborative person-centred care.

The recently published General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) Standards for the Initial Educational and Training of Pharmacists (2021) lead to pharmacists becoming independent prescribers and widen the scope of clinical pharmacy practice. Therefore, we are currently transforming our MPharm degree programme which will include simulation-based learning and experiential learning placements.

In line with our strategy and these Standards, we are seeking to appoint a member of staff to make a significant contribution to the development and delivery of clinical teaching and simulation-based learning opportunities, including interprofessional education, in our undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy courses.

The School welcomes applicants from diverse academic backgrounds and encourages new thematic areas of collaboration and funding which build upon existing areas of strength.

The successful candidate must have, and your application should clearly demonstrate you have:

  • Honours degree or equivalent in pharmacy which is registrable with the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland or the General Pharmaceutical Council (GB)
  • Pharmacist independent prescriber (PIP) qualification and practised as a PIP in a clinical setting within the last three years
  • MSc or equivalent
  • Evidence of ability to publish
  • Evidence of recent, relevant scholarly activity in clinical pharmacy or pharmacy education (for example, development of clinical guidelines) (Established Lecturer only)
  • Teaching experience, commensurate with stage of career
