School of Biosciences and Medicine

The University of Surrey is seeking a Director of Learning and Teaching, Medicine, to form part of an enthusiastic and creative team of medical educator academics working together to set up a new community-facing School of Medicine.

This is a great opportunity for an innovative, experienced medical educator to make a significant contribution to the development of a medical undergraduate curriculum, using evidence-based contemporary teaching and learning theory and methods. The programme will have a particular emphasis on digital and communication health technology (a research strength at Surrey), as well as a ‘One Health’ ethos, that promotes understanding of a ‘whole society’ approach to health and builds on our aims to develop truly inter-professional training with courses from Health Sciences, Psychology, Veterinary Medicine and Biosciences, as well as Engineering and Business.   

In the initial one-year term of this post, you will play a lead role in developing all aspects relating to learning, teaching, assessment and the student experience of Surrey’s new BMBCh programme, embracing  new ways of teaching delivery and technology. As Director of Learning and Teaching, you will be responsible to the Associate Dean for Medicine (Professor Kamila Hawthorne) in the School of Biosciences and Medicine.

To join us at this exiting time, you will be a forward-looking individual with a ‘can do’ attitude and the ambition to achieve personally.  You will use your skills and networks in concert with the complementary activities of our existing staff based across our Faculty who are tackling some of the major challenges facing society, including an ageing population, disease burden and food security.  Opportunities to interact across the four Schools (Biosciences and Medicine, Health Sciences; Veterinary Medicine; Psychology) and wider University abound and are positively encouraged.

The University of Surrey was named the Times and Sunday Times University of the Year 2016 and is a top ten UK University set in a beautiful campus in Guildford half an hour’s journey from the centre of London.  In addition to competitive salary, we offer a vibrant and forward thinking working environment, childcare assistance, first-class sports and leisure facilities and access to a variety of staff development opportunities to help you fulfil your potential.
