Reader in Children and Young Peoples Nursing

University of Salford

Are you passionate about  children and young people’s nursing and wanting to lead research and education in this area? The School of Health and Society is looking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the role of Reader in Nursing (Children and Young People). 

Nursing plays a significant role within our School, and we have recently invested considerably in our research infrastructure, as such there is a wealth of experience and expertise within the Directorate to provide a secure foundation for further development in research, innovation, teaching and learning. We are therefore seeking an established nurse academic/researcher to work with us to  contribute to the expansion of research, innovation and scholarship in the Directorate of Nursing and Midwifery. The successful candidate will have a commitment to collaborative working, staff development and have an engaging leadership style.  The post-holder will provide key research leadership within the Directorate, working with other Readers and Professors, being managed and led by the Directorate Professorial Lead.  

As a Reader in Nursing (Children and Young People) you will be supported to advance your own career whilst contributing to our research, innovation and entrepreneurial culture. You will develop plans and deliver objectives that align with the School research and innovation strategy, and the Directorate development plans. The post holder must be a Registered CYP Nurse (those with relevant CYP experience also welcomed, including SCPHN). Whilst we are open in terms of research focus, we would be particularly interested in candidates with expertise in clinically focused/applied health research, public health and working with vulnerable and marginalised groups. 

In recognition of our commitment to create a diverse team that draws from our widest talent pool we would particularly encourage applications from groups who are currently under-represented at this level which includes individuals from Ethnic Minority Groups.
