Job description

The University of Sussex is seeking applications from pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists who would like to join the Pharmacy teaching team to support the delivery of its MPharm degree for its current students. Sussex Pharmacy is committed to delivering excellent research-informed teaching. We aim to produce skilled pharmacists who display a high level of professional practice as well as optimising patient and public safety.

Although the MPharm degree is now closed to new entrants, the team is delivering the full MPharm curriculum to our student population of approximately 80 students across years 2, 3 and 4 of the degree. The existing pharmacy teaching team is committed to continuing to provide a rich and engaging student experience in these next three years.

Our MPharm degree integrates students’ knowledge of pharmaceutics, chemistry, pharmacology and behavioural and social sciences, legal and ethical aspects of medicines as well as professionalism. Our teaching is innovative and interdisciplinary. The MPharm team is also supported by colleagues from a range disciplines in the School of Life Sciences.

There are potential opportunities for academics and professionals across a number of pharmacy -related disciplines, with full and part-time roles (and flexible working opportunities) available. Posts are likely to be offered on the teaching and scholarship pathway, but we will consider approaches from those seeking a teaching and research role. Grades will range from 7 to 9 (£33,199 - £58,089 pa full-time) on the university’s single pay spine, dependent on contribution and experience.
