School of Biological and Chemical Sciences
Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has an outstanding track record of educational collaboration with Chinese universities, and this appointment is to teach on a joint programme in Biomedical Sciences with Nanchang University (NCU), China.
NCU is a national key (“211 project”) university which has over 81,000 full-time and 10,000 part-time undergraduate students and over 11,000 postgraduates. The partnership with Nanchang is a genuinely equal partnership from which students will graduate with a degree in Clinical Biomedicine from Nanchang University and a degree in Biomedical Sciences from QMUL, and teaching is split equally between the universities. Teaching is in English, and the programme draws on the academic expertise of both institutions. All of the programme is delivered in Nanchang, and QMUL staff are flown out to deliver their teaching.
You will join an existing PDP and Study Skills Lecturer working in the SBCS on the Joint Programme with NCU. You will be expected to travel regularly to Nanchang for teaching (approximately 8 visits a year) and attending examination boards and other meetings as appropriate. Teaching will contribute at least 60% of workload, scholarship will normally contribute 20% of workload and administration and management normally contribute 20% of workload. You will play a critical role in the establishment of a vibrant joint programme and the necessary curriculum development. Success in meeting these objectives and providing the finest possible education for our students is recognised explicitly in career progression and promotion criteria at QMUL.
The post is permanent and full-time starting from August 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The salary for this post will be in the range of £40,182 - £50,030 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
You must be able to demonstrate your eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.
