Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University

We pride ourselves on providing a dynamic and stimulating learning environment informed by our cutting-edge clinical and basic research and look forward to welcoming new talent to our team.

Our School is at the heart of its educational development. Eye disease patients are now cared for in the community by their optometrist and, for our school, we are leading these innovative new avenues in healthcare excellence and delivery. These changes align with the new curriculum mandated by the General Optical Council (GOC), Education Standards Review.

We are looking for highly motivated and forward thinking GOC Registered Optometrists who are passionate about education and able to develop, deliver and evaluate a range of modules and programs taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

For this role, we are looking for an experienced clinician and educator, who should have experience leading and / or managing clinical services and / or study programs and have excellent people management skills. The candidate will hold a doctoral degree and / or an advanced postgraduate clinical qualification. Experience in advanced clinical practice such as glaucoma or medical retina would be desirable.

It is expected that the successful candidate for this post will be appointed to the post of Director of Teaching and Learning for the School (Vacancy: 11554BR)

Closing date: Sunday July 4, 2021.

This position is open and is available immediately.

The School of Optometry and Vision Sciences is proud to be internationally recognized for the quality of its teaching and research. Successful applicants will work with internationally renowned experts in their field in a specially designed building, which brings together education, research and patient-oriented clinics in one location.

Informal inquiries are welcome and may be directed, in the first instance, to the principal of the school, Professor John Wild ([email protected]) or, for HR questions, please contact ([email protected]).

All roles are offered full time or part time (at least 80% time / 4 days per week). Part-time roles (4 days per week) are offered with the primary purpose of ensuring that our staff experience clinical practice outside of university. Opportunities may also be available to work in improved clinical services within the school.

Cardiff University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive work environment. We believe this can be achieved by attracting, developing and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds. We therefore welcome applicants from all sections of the community, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, trans identity, relationship status, religion or belief, family responsibilities or age. In helping our employees achieve a work-life balance, we will also consider proposals for flexible work arrangements or job sharing.

“Cardiff University is a signatory to the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we will assess applicants on the quality of their research, and not on the publication parameters or the identity of the journal in which the research is published.
