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) Postgraduate Pharmacy Practice.   

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, our University 2030 Strategy aims to provide a transformative student experience including flexible and broad-based learning opportunities and innovative modules. Our taught postgraduate portfolio of programmes for pharmacists (Certificate, Diploma and MSc) aims to enhance therapeutic knowledge, clinical skills, competencies, and research skills. The flexible study pathway of distance learning means that students can fit their studies around their work and family commitments.   

It is important that pharmacists have opportunities to progress and take on enhanced clinical roles and responsibilities as part of multi-disciplinary teams, particularly as patients’ health needs are becoming more diverse and complex, and healthcare systems are evolving.   

In light of this, and our University Strategy, we are seeking to appoint a member of staff who will direct education and the delivery of contemporary clinical teaching and assessment for our taught postgraduate portfolio of programmes for pharmacists.  

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

  • Honours degree or equivalent in pharmacy which is automatically registrable with the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland or the General Pharmaceutical Council (Great Britain);
  • PhD in Pharmacy or a closely related area (or evidence of working towards completion of a relevant PhD in the near future);
  • 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); and
  • Teaching experience, commensurate with stage of career.

At Queen’s our people are at the heart of everything we do. As a staff member you will become part of a vibrant organisational culture, which will provide you with the opportunity to achieve your full potential and enhance your career through a continuous focus on learning and development.   

We offer an excellent employment package that includes:
