Team Leader in Medical Sciences (Principal Lecturer)

As one of only five new Medical Schools in England, the University of Sunderland, School of Medicine will welcome its first cohort of students in September 2019. This marks a very exciting time for our University, our NHS partners and the City/Region.

With a track record of excellence in health education spanning almost 100 years, the University is well placed to contribute to the expansion of medical training and help to address the chronic shortage in some medical specialties including general practice in the North East. We have a significant focus on widening access and will deploy our expertise to ensure we recruit students from the communities they will ultimately serve.

Our new programme will allow Medical students to learn within our state-of-the-art teaching and learning spaces, including outstanding laboratory facilities, the latest in high fidelity clinical simulation equipment and some of the best hospital and GP settings in England.

The Team Leader (Medical Sciences) will be one of our early key appointments to our new School of Medicine and undertake an active role as part of the School’s Management Team and associated Committee. You will provide strategic academic leadership and operational management to the Medical Sciences team in line with School and Faculty plans and objectives and contribute to the provision of excellent academic practice by making a balanced contribution across all areas of academic activity.

You will be managing a team of staff to deliver the science components of years one and two of the Medical Degree course, ensuring all science components are timetabled and staffed, translating the Keele Medical degree curriculum into Sunderland Medical School.
As a recognised scholar/teacher or authority in the subject area, with experience of providing effective academic leadership, you will have a track record in developing peer reviewed published work and/or delivering and designing academic programmes. With proven and in depth understanding of the NHS and HE environment and the complex dynamics of their relationship will ideally be complemented by your previous experience of teaching medical sciences within a University Medical School.
