Reader or Professor in Acute Emergency Care

Employment type: Permanent
Employment basis: Full-time
Salary: Reader: £51,034- £59,135 per annum
Professor: Commensurate with standing
Post number: ZZ005455
Closing date: 08 December 2019

Interview date: 23 January 2020

The School of Health and Care Professions wishes to appoint a research leader in acute emergency care who is also able to provide innovative and inspiring leadership within the school.

The School of Health and Care Professions has an established profile in the sector, which is now growing with the addition of a number of exciting, new subject areas. The post holder will maintain a leadership role that focuses on patient and user experience, influencing all areas of the school and its work.

Candidates will have a substantial international research profile as evidenced by well-cited publications in leading journals and a track record of attracting research funding. An ability to make connections between research areas and have a multi-disciplinary outlook is essential. We are looking for a high-calibre individual with leadership capabilities, willing to share expertise and nurture others in disciplines across the school.

The post-holder will have opportunity to guide the strategic direction of the school, leading and working with a group of talented colleagues, in an ambitious and achieving school, enjoying strategic investment and growth. The candidate will be expected to enthusiastically integrate research specialisms into teaching across all programmes within the school, while developing skills relevant to the graduate labour market, thus contributing to the school's strategy of skills-focused and research-informed teaching.

Appointment will be made at an appropriate level, commensurate with experience, research profile and outputs.

The school’s research culture is blossoming, with active research groups integrating specialisms spanning global health, social care, primary and secondary care.

The school offers a range of pre-registration health and social care courses, which attract healthy numbers of good applicants and are growing within the international arena. The school is also active in supporting post-graduate students, including MRes, Professional Doctorate and PhD.

Although the post is available as either a Reader or Professor, only one appointment will be made. Please note each post has a different person specification/ job description. You should also indicate in the ‘reasons for applying section’ whether you wish to be considered for the Reader or Professor position.

For an information discussion relating to this position, in the first instance please contact Dr Chris Markham, Head of School

Applications from candidates who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and all appointments will be made on merit. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.
