This is your chance to join Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) in pioneering a new era of responsive, student-centred medical education. As Senior Lecturer/ Reader and Academic Lead for Year 2, you will make a major contribution to the development of the KMMS undergraduate programme, introducing teaching innovation to the development and delivery of undergraduate medical education, offering leadership in all aspects of the second year of the programme, and providing an inspirational role model for the next generation of medical professionals.

Kent and Medway Medical School has been created to be a beacon for first-class medical education and research. Bringing together the resources of the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, our whole ethos is one of partnership. The combined roles of Senior Lecturer/ Reader and Academic Lead for Year 2 involve working closely with our programme, academic and administrative teams across both Universities, as well as with the wider health education community and a variety of external bodies. 

As a member of a teaching team, you will deliver high quality undergraduate level learning and teaching activities, developing your own teaching materials, methods and approaches, as well as supervising, advising and providing feedback to students. You will play a key role in coordinating teaching and assessment in Year 2 of the programme and contributing to the ongoing accreditation process.

To make your mark in this influential role, you must be an enthusiastic innovator with a healthy attitude to change and new challenges, plus a co-operative approach that matches our own. We expect you to have significant evidence of contemporary expertise in undergraduate medical education in curriculum development, delivery and evaluation, with a specific interest and background in undergraduate medical, health sciences and healthcare education.

We welcome applications from both those who are clinically registered and practising and from those working in clinical or academic roles within universities, ideally with experience within the following range of activities: student selection, assessment including admissions and portfolios in medical education, electronic learning and assessment, student support, supervision and inter-professional learning and assessment.

At KMMS, our vision is to produce graduates with the curiosity and the academic, professional and clinical skills to find global solutions to local challenges – multi-talented individuals whose training will have prepared them to lead, manage and innovate in 21st Century healthcare. If you have the skills, experience and enthusiasm to help us achieve this, we would be delighted to receive your application.

This role will involve working on the campus sites of both the partner universities in Canterbury and Medway.
