School of Medicine

Lecturer in Medical Sociology – AC21340MR

Salary: £39,992 - £49,149 per annum

The School of Medicine wishes to a lecturer in Medical Sociology / Social Sciences (Education Focused) to work with undergraduate medical students and our multi-disciplinary teaching staff. 

The successful candidates will:

  • Have experience of teaching medical or closely related subjects at undergraduate or postgraduate levels.
  • Hold a qualification in sociology or other related medical sciences.

This opportunity has arisen now as the School is about to launch ScotGEM; Scotland’s first graduate entry medical degree.  The programme is a joint venture between the Medical Schools of St Andrews and Dundee.  While much of the programme will be delivered jointly and in the NHS this post is St Andrews based. This increase in teaching load necessitates an uplift in the teaching staff.

The role holders will be core members of the Education Division in the School; primarily teaching on the ScotGEM MBChB programme (Graduate entry) as well as the BSc (Hons) Medicine.  The role holder will teach on MSc programmes run from the School of Medicine as required. 

The post will start on 1 June 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter and is for 3 years in the first instance with possible extension.

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Anita Laidlaw, Education Division Lead (ahl1@st-andrews.ac.uk), Prof Jon Dowell, Director ScotGEM programme (j.s.sdowell@dundee.ac.uk), Prof John Zajicek, Director BSc (Hons) Medicine programme (jz45@st-andrews.ac.uk).

The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall).  More details can be found at http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/

Closing Date:  4 May 2018
