With around 26,900 students from 100 countries, Birmingham City University is a large and diverse learning community. We put students at the heart of everything we do, giving them the best opportunities for future success.
The Department of Public Health, Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences at Birmingham City University has seen unprecedented growth of its Master of Public Health (MPH) course over the last few years. In addition, the department is also delivering health management/public health courses with international partners, and this is seeing much growth too. Consequently, the department offers an exciting opportunity for a Senior Lecturer to join this pro-active Public Health team and help deliver its academic portfolio.
Candidates will be equipped with appropriate public health experience which will contribute to the student learning experience. Within the team you will have responsibility for the academic and personal development of our students; curriculum development and management roles; and play a key role in the teaching, assessment, and supervision of MPH dissertation students. You will also teach on public health related courses that we currently deliver to international partners and look to assist with the wider objectives of the Department, School, and Faculty.
You will possess a PhD in Public Health or a related area (or be in the process of PhD completion). Whilst we expect the successful candidate to work on a range of public health modules, we particularly welcome applications from individuals who have experience and expertise in health policy with insight into sociology as this is an area we look to fortify. Previous experience of working in Higher Education is very much preferred, however, applications from individuals with significant experience of working in health/community settings are also welcomed.
