Lecturer (Education) Clinical Pharmacy Job with QUEENS UNIVERSITY BELFAST

job description

Queen’s University Belfast School of Pharmacy is currently seeking to appoint an outstanding candidate for the post of Lecturer (Education) in Clinical Pharmacy.

The School of Pharmacy has an ambitious five-year strategy for the development of teaching and research, building on our excellent reputation. Currently, we are in the global top 100 in the QS World University Rankings by subject. Additionally, the University recently opened the state-of-the-art KN Cheung SK Chin InterSim Center which will enable future healthcare professionals to learn and work together to provide safe, effective and collaborative person-centered care.

The recently released General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) Standards for Initial Pharmacist Education and Training (2021) lead pharmacists to become independent prescribers and expand the scope of clinical pharmacy practice. Therefore, we are currently transforming our MPharm degree program which will include simulation learning and experiential learning placements.

In line with our strategy and these standards, we are seeking to appoint a member of staff to make a meaningful contribution to the development and delivery of clinical teaching and simulation-based learning opportunities, including interprofessional education, in our undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy courses.

The school welcomes applicants from diverse academic backgrounds and encourages new thematic areas of collaboration and funding that build on existing areas of strength.

The successful candidate must have, and your application must clearly demonstrate that you have:

  • Honors degree or equivalent in pharmacy which may be registered with the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland or the General Pharmaceutical Council (GB)
  • Independent Prescribing Pharmacist (PIP) degree and practiced as a PIP in a clinical setting for the past three years
  • MSc or equivalent
  • Proof of ability to publish
  • Evidence of recent and relevant scientific activity in the field of clinical pharmacy or pharmacy education (e.g. development of clinical guidelines) (established lecturer only)
  • Teaching experience, commensurate with career stage
