This is a part time (0.6FTE)/fixed term maternity cover opportunity for 8 months

Glasgow Caledonian University a vibrant, multi-cultural, modern university in the centre of Glasgow and is placed amongst the top 200 modern universities in the world (THE, 2019) and in the top 50 universities globally for social impact (THE, 2019). Our welcoming community of 20,000 students from more than 100 countries enjoy a wide range of award-winning support services and state of the art facilities across each of our campuses in Glasgow, London and New York. Our University mission, commitment to the Common Good and core values of integrity, creativity, responsibility and confidence is integral to everything we do and how we deliver our mission.

The Department of Podiatry and Radiography embraces the disciplines of Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Ultrasound, Podiatry and Radiotherapy and Oncology and is one of three Allied Health Science Departments within the School of Health and Life Science. We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Diagnostic Imaging to contribute to high quality learning and teaching activities and the enhancement of the student experience. Diagnostic Imaging lecturers at GCU primarily contribute to BSc Honours and MSc programmes and are involved in profession specific and inter-professional education, development and research. Our programmes have all recently be re-approved and so this is an opportunity to be involved in the development and delivery of new and innovative module content to reflect contemporary practice.

We are seeking to complement our existing strengths within the team by appointing lecturers who are flexible, adaptable and excellent team workers. Applications are invited from experienced HCPC registered radiographers who have been involved in student education, with significant post qualifying experience. We are also happy to consider applications from anyone who is interested in experiencing a lecturing post in Radiography as a secondment opportunity from their current employer (where you remain an employee of your current organisation with no change to your remuneration and benefits) but are seconded to GCU on a 0.6FTE basis for 8 months.

Prior experience of teaching within Higher Education is highly desirable but not essential. In addition to being involved in scholarly activity, key responsibilities of the post include contributing to programme delivery and development, student support and engagement, and involvement with e-Learning. The successful candidate will be able to work autonomously and as part of a team, and have excellent communication and self-management skills. This is an exciting time to join the School and the University which has a vibrant research culture and a reputation for innovation in teaching and learning.

To be considered for interview, applicants are required to have a professional qualification in Radiography, be HCPC registered/eligible for registration, and have an MSc qualification or be working toward a postgraduate qualification in a relevant area. You will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of current issues relevant to Diagnostic Imaging and how these impact on both the curriculum and the workforce. The candidate will show evidence of working with students; prior experience of delivering learning and teaching within higher education is desirable, as is experience of e-learning/ online learning environments. The successful candidate will be supported to deliver high quality learning and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels to both Diagnostic imaging and inter-professional student groups.

Further details are available by contacting Dr Helen Gallagher, Assistant Vice Principal Health and Wellbeing and Head of Department of Podiatry and Radiography at h.l.gallagher@gcu.ac.uk or on 0141 331 3398.
