Hull York Medical School is looking for an outstanding and enthusiastic individual to contribute to the innovation, development and delivery of human applied physiology education within our undergraduate (MBBS) and postgraduate (MSc) and doctoral (MD, PhD) portfolio of programmes. This is an exciting time to join Hull York Medical School. Following the Department of Health initiative to expand the number of medical school places in England, Hull York Medical School has been awarded an additional 90 places a year from 2020 which represents a 69% increase in places.

The successful candidate will have a strong applied human physiology background with experience of both education and research, and a real passion for fostering and facilitating learning. Based primarily at the University of Hull, the successful candidate will, on appointment, benefit from strong active collegiate support within CAHS and the Health Professions Education Unit to develop their human physiology/education-related research and scholarship aspirations. Additionally, the role holder will have the opportunity to take advantage of our strong collaborative links with clinicians, academics and clinical academics at the Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, the University of Hull School of Life Sciences, and the University of York Palaeohub.
