Lecturer in Public Health

The role

We are looking to appoint an experienced and enthusiastic lecturer to teach on the MSc Public Health delivered by the department of Population Health Science, in Bristol Medical School. The MSc was established in 2018 and includes units on the principles and practice of public health, health improvement, health protection, evaluation of public health interventions, research methods, epidemiology and statistics, health economics, ethics and healthcare services. Please see http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/2021/health-sciences/msc-public-health for further details.

  • Deliver lectures and small group teaching as appropriate to your subject expertise, typically within the two units that you co-lead
  • Adapt and develop teaching materials for online teaching activities (asynchronous and synchronous) with other academic staff and visiting teachers
  • Be involved in developing assessments, marking and providing timely and constructive feedback for student coursework
  • Provide academic support for personal tutees

You should apply if
