The Role

As Associate Professor, you’ll be a real catalyst at the heart of the faculty, designing, developing, delivering and critically evaluating a vital range of study programmes. We’ll look to you to identify, promote and deliver the most innovative, practical and inclusive practice in learning and teaching. You’ll also make a real impact on School of Nursing’s leadership and management, influencing the delivery of high-calibre research and enterprise, and activities such chairing university committees and running performance and development appraisals.

The Person

We’re looking for ambitious academic professionals looking to seize this opportunity with both hands and, not only do it well, but use it as a springboard for promotion into a full professor role.

You will be able to offer high quality teaching through lectures, seminars and be skilled in providing advice and support to students. You will be an excellent communicator and collaborator, and enjoy working with colleagues from across the school’s disciplines including all fields of Nursing. You will have an established or emerging research profile, and will contribute to our research standing through, for example, practice-based research, published papers/publications, successful research or enterprise funding bids, and possibly PhD supervision.

Applicants will be required to demonstrate that they meet the Kingston University standards in learning and teaching, and research.  By the end of the probation period, you must have achieved the relevant level of UKPSF recognition (if this has not already been obtained).
