The Faculty of Education & Health at the University of Greenwich is a vibrant and dynamic organisation that has an excellent reputation for partnership working with a range of health and social care organisations. Our students are highly satisfied and we recruit and retain exceptional students.

We have run a very successful and innovative pre-registration postgraduate speech and language therapy programme in collaboration with Canterbury Christ Church University for the last 11 years. We are in the process of developing a collaborative undergraduate BSc programme and are now seeking to appoint a creative and committed senior lecturer in speech and language therapy to join our well-established speech and language team. The post holder will contribute to the delivery of our current PGDip speech and language therapy programme and our planned future BSc Programme. The post will also involve contribution to the delivery of other programmes across the Faculty, according to expertise.

You should be a registered speech and language therapist with a passion for education and research. You will be expected to develop and use imaginative teaching approaches and materials, enable and support students’ learning and professional development and initiate and maintain strong external links with practice.  Experience of working in higher education and or research would be an advantage, but the post would also be suitable for an experienced practitioner who is interested in making a career move into higher education, with support provided for suitable applicants in obtaining a recognised higher education teaching qualification. If required, there is financial and academic support for doctoral studies.

The post is based at the Medway campus but travel will be required to other campuses and practice learning environments.
