The Centre for Primary Care and Public Health at Queen Mary University London is seeking a bright and enthusiastic academic at lecturer level to contribute to its global health teaching programme.

The successful applicant would join a multi-disciplinary team of academic staff with backgrounds in medicine, sociology, anthropology, international relations and geography. Importantly, s/he would join a teaching unit that 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.

The teaching programme consists of five postgraduate MSc degrees and a three-year undergraduate BSc degree in global health.  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 in global public health and a particular interest in social epidemiology and the social determinants of health.  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 either undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels.

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 and fixed term until 31 July 2019, starting in August 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter.  Starting salary will be in the range £39,745 to £49,486, inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
