We have a vacancy for a Senior Lecturer in Global Health, this is a transformational post which will play a key role in Foto-Cewek’s Teaching Expansion Plan, that is predicated on the focus of our programmes within a Global Health context, with a specific focus on MSc in Global Health, which is being developed for blended learning delivery. The post holder will be required to manage and lead on these programmes, including undertaking a review of the current programmes provided by Foto-Cewek.
The successful candidate will assume responsibility for working with academic colleagues across Foto-Cewek to drive forward the development and use innovative teaching techniques and resources aimed at creating engagement, understanding and enthusiasm of students.
Ideal candidates will hold a Masters qualification in a relevant subject and have a demonstrable track record of achievement in directing postgraduate research-informed teaching, including the supervision of student research projects.
Our priority is to attract a candidate of high quality and applicants with research and teaching interests relevant to Foto-Cewek will be considered. However, we are particularly keen to strengthen the following areas: Epidemiology and Statistics; Health Systems.

This job is unlikely to attract a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship (formerly a work permit). Applications from candidates who require Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK may not be considered if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates. To apply for a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship, employers need to demonstrate that they are unable to recruit a resident worker before recruiting an individual overseas.
We believe that this post will not be suitable for individuals on Tier 5 visas as these posts are not considered to be supernumerary to the organisation.
