Following several years of robust growth, we are pleased to be able to offer a new position in Public Health, at the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level.
The School of Human Sciences is in the fantastic Dreadnought building on the World Heritage site at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich.
You will be joining a School and Faculty that is building a strong interdisciplinary and cross-professional approach to solving the grand challenges facing society. We are looking for colleagues who will have a commitment to maintaining and building the University’s excellence in teaching and learning, and who are doing research that has the potential for significant long-term academic and societal impact.
We welcome applications from individuals with an interest in any area of Public Health. This reflects our already strong coverage of core curriculum areas and clear research interest groups. As a Faculty we also welcome candidates whose research work will resonate with one or more new interdisciplinary Faculty Research Centres within the newly formed Institute for Lifecourse Development:
- Centre for Chronic Disease and Ageing
- Centre for Exercise Activity and Rehabilitation
- Centre for Inequalities
- Centre for Mental Health
- Centre for Professional Workforce Development
- Centre for Thinking and Learning
- Centre for Vulnerable Children and Families
The School has an active and growing research base. We anticipate a strong performance in REF2021 particularly with regard to ‘research environment’. The University is currently rated TEF silver, reflecting our excellent teaching and learning, and we have realistic aspirations to achieve a TEF rating of ‘gold’ in any forthcoming assessment exercise.
We are looking to recruit an individual with a strong and developing track record of research who, at the same time, can demonstrate commitment to teaching excellence and innovation. We actively sustain and promote a collegiate atmosphere that is underpinned by equality, diversity, and inclusion. Candidates would be expected to have either PhD or significant experience in public health work at a senior level.
We are looking for people who can help us deliver our mission of transforming lives through inspired teaching and research, through our values.
