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.

This is a new post to join an established and experienced group of teaching staff. The MSc benefits from expertise from external teachers from Public Health England and local government and the new post holder will work with internal and external teachers to develop, adapt and deliver flexible blended learning.

  • 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
  • You are excited about teaching public health.
