The Department also supports approximately 200 scientists and clinicians studying for doctoral degrees (PhD or MD(Res)).

Duties and responsibilities

Your responsibilities will span across a wide range of areas, from providing core teaching and learning support to programme academic responsibilities and career development.

You will be expected to contribute significantly to the development and implementation of the MSc programme by maintaining a detailed understanding of developments in genetics and genomics. The applicant will lead two modules (M1: Molecular Genetics and M4: Genomics in the Laboratory) and share the lead for another module (M5: six-month student research projects).

For module 4, you will deliver two laboratory teaching practicals (each two weeks long) using laboratory techniques commonly used in biomedical research. You will also contribute to teaching development, using a range of established and innovative teaching / assessment methods as appropriate. A further important aspect of the role is to promote best practice and excellence in education within the department.

You should be strongly motivated to educate students and have the skills necessary to interact effectively with staff and students at all levels. When not teaching, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to departmental research.

You need to have excellent written and oral communication skills. They need to be well organised, able to prioritise and work to deadlines with little day to day supervision. As well as working autonomously, showing initiative and flexibility, you need to be able to work cooperatively with others.

Further information
