The Centre for Primary Care and Public Health wishes to recruit an academic at either lecturer or senior lecturer level to contribute to its growing initiative in global health education.

We offer a number of postgraduate MSc degrees and a three-year undergraduate BSc degree in a range of global public health subjects. The content of these degrees include health systems policy, epidemiology and statistics, social determinants of health, migration and culture, ecological health, global health governance and international law and health.

We are looking for an academic with general experience and interest in global public health. But we are particularly interested in academics with interest in the social, political and ecological determinants. Ideally the candidate would have professional or academic experience and knowledge of low and middle income countries. Candidates must have some experience of public health teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The post-holder will join a multi-disciplinary team of academic staff with backgrounds that include medicine, sociology, anthropology and geography.  Importantly, the teaching programme is shaped by a strong public service ethos and the desire to equip all its students with the skills, competencies and motivation to promote social justice and improve health worldwide.  Although this is primarily a teaching post, the post-holder will be a rounded academic who would also develop his/her interest in research and public engagement.

The post is full-time (although we are willing to consider candidates who wish to work part-time) and fixed term for 12 months starting in September 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter, with the possibility of extension.

Starting salary at Lecturer level will be in the range £39,351 to £48,996 per annum inclusive of London Allowance or £51,785 to £57,882 if appointed at Senior Lecturer level.  Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.
