Senior Lecturer in Global Health (Teaching & Research)

University of Manchester

An exciting opportunity has arisen at the University of Manchester for the post of Senior Lecturer in Global Health at the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI). We are particularly interested in candidates whose research interests can engage with and span the Institute’s range of thematic expertise in global/humanitarian health, humanitarian and conflict response, or disaster management. HCRI is a multidisciplinary institute, and we welcome applications that illustrate a commitment to or experience of crossing disciplinary boundaries.

This senior lectureship is a teaching and research position aimed at complementing and advancing HCRI’s mission. The role, based in Manchester, requires the post-holder to contribute to the Institute’s international reputation of academic excellence by delivering high-quality research and publications, particularly related to global and humanitarian health, and through an existing record of successful grant capture. Further, the successful candidate will be asked to contribute to teaching activities, including contributing to undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD programmes, as stipulated by the Institute Director. The candidate must be able to provide course development for new and existing undergraduate and postgraduate taught course units around their research interests to complement the current teaching portfolio. The existing Global Health teaching is primarily online, with some face-to-face teaching, and therefore the post holder is expected to provide high quality digital (online and hybrid) as well as face-to-face teaching in the Institute. Finally, the post holder will be required to contribute to academic administration and management.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and all appointments will be made on merit. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.
