This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving research group in the new School of Health Sciences at the University of Manchester. We are looking for a Senior Lecturer to lead work focused on health policy, organisation and management, using social scientific approaches to explore the making and impact of health policy, as well as service planning, organisation and delivery.

In research, you will support Professor Kath Checkland in expanding the scope and reach of health organisation and policy-related research in the School of Health Sciences, strengthening cross-School and cross-Faculty research collaborations.

You will actively seek out funding opportunities, supporting and leading bids for research project funding and working with colleagues in the School and across Faculties to develop strategic bids for research infrastructure funding.

In teaching, your initial objective will be to develop and implement a new module on health policy for the online MPH/MRes course, building upon and updating a module previously delivered in this topic area.

You will also work closely with the Sociology Lead for the MBChB (Caroline Sanders) to update, develop and deliver new social science components for the curriculum, with a particular remit for policy and organisation components.

In service you will share responsibility with Professor Kath Checkland in ensuring that the School of Health Sciences plays a full part in the developing University of Manchester policy network, policy@manchester, working across the School to support colleagues in considering the policy-related aspects of their work and encouraging them to engage with the policy@manchester infrastructure in supporting events, writing blogs and developing impact cases in the policy field.

We are committed to the development of all staff within the Division of Population Health, Health Services and Primary Care, and will offer training and personal development opportunities relevant to your skills, experience and career aspirations.

The School is strongly committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for gender equality in higher education. The School holds a Silver Award which recognises their good practice in relation to gender; including flexible working arrangements, family-friendly policies, and support to allow staff achieve a good work-life balance. We particularly welcome applications from women for this post.
