Our welcoming community of 20,000 students from more than 100 countries enjoy a wide range of award-winning support services and state of the art facilities across each of our campuses in Glasgow, London and New York. Our mission - with its commitment to the Common Good, and our core values of integrity, creativity, responsibility and confidence are integral to everything we do.

The Department of Podiatry and Radiography embraces the disciplines of Podiatry, Medical Ultrasound, Diagnostic Imaging and Radiotherapy and Oncology and is one of three Allied Health Science Departments within the School of Health and Life Science. We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Podiatry to contribute to high quality learning and teaching activities and the enhancement of the student experience. Podiatry lecturers at GCU primarily contribute to BSc Honours and MSc programmes and are involved in profession specific and inter-professional education, development and research. The successful applicant will work as part of a close-knit team and be expected to develop and deliver an engaging and exciting learning experience to students both on- and off-campus.

Applications are invited from experienced HCPC registered Podiatrists, who have been involved in student education, with significant post qualifying experience.

Prior experience of teaching within Higher Education is highly desirable but not essential. In addition to being involved in scholarly activity, key responsibilities of the post include contributing to programme delivery and development, student support and engagement, and involvement with e-Learning. The successful candidate will be able to work autonomously and as part of a team, and have excellent communication and self-management skills. This is an exciting time to join the School and the University which has a vibrant research culture and a reputation for innovation in teaching and learning.

To be considered for interview, applicants are required to have a professional qualification in Podiatry, be HCPC registered, and have an MSc qualification or be working toward a postgraduate qualification in a relevant area. You will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of current issues relevant to Podiatry and how these impact on both the curriculum and the workforce. The candidate will show evidence of working with students; prior experience of delivering learning and teaching within higher education is desirable, as is experience of e-learning/online learning environments. The successful candidate will be supported to deliver high quality learning and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels to both Podiatry and inter-professional student groups.
