Job description

Applications are invited for the post of Senior Lecturer in Medical Education – Undergraduate Teaching and Learning at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS). It is open to suitably-qualified specialists at consultant/senior lecturer level who have a specific interest in medical education and an established academic track record in this area.

The post is offered in association with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust (BSHUT) where the successful applicant will hold an honorary consultant contract.

The successful applicant will be an accredited physician and will have significant evidence of expertise in medical education. Ideally they will have experience within the following range of activities: curriculum development, curriculum design, assessment including admissions, use of portfolios in medical education, electronic learning, and inter-professional learning.

The successful candidate will also have evidence of research output. There will be an expectation that this will, in due course, lead to grant income and that they will participate actively in the research endeavours of BSMS.

From an academic perspective, this post will be based in the Department of Medical Education at BSMS. The ongoing development of the school, undergraduate curriculum and assessment processes requires appropriately qualified clinical academic staff to contribute to maintaining BSMS high educational standards and to further develop our course and student experience.

Brighton & Sussex Medical School is a joint venture between the Universities of Brighton and Sussex and received its first medical students in 2003.  Since then it has proved to be exceptionally popular and in recent admissions rounds has continued to achieve one of the highest application rates of any UK medical school.

Interested candidates are encouraged to discuss the position informally with Prof Gordon Ferns, Head of the Department of Medical Education (g.ferns@bsms.ac.uk) or Prof Juliet Wright, Director of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning (j.wright@bsuh.nhs.uk).
