    Department: Hull York Medical School
    Salary: £32,959 to £38,183 per annum

    We are looking to appoint an experienced programme administrator with expertise in project planning and delivery, as well as people management. The post holder will be responsible for the effective and efficient day-to-day operation of a growing portfolio of programmes, including the School’s flagship five year medical MB BS undergraduate programme as well as an increasing number of postgraduate programmes across the School. Primarily based at the University of Hull but with occasional travel to the University of York, the post holder must be prepared to travel across the HYMS region to fully engage with colleagues at all of the HYMS NHS settings, including hospital, primary care, community and private provider settings. Adept at organisation and management you will work closely with a wide range of HYMS and NHS colleagues; with excellent interpersonal skills, confidence as a communicator and the ability to work with and inspire confidence in a wide range of people across these different settings, the post holder will make a measurable impact on the quality of the student learning experience.

    The post holder will need to be highly organised and skilled at prioritising their own workload, as well as that of others, and must be able to use initiative and work effectively under pressure. This is a great opportunity for an administrative manager seeking to develop or expand their understanding of medical education and associated programmes. Self-motivation and a desire to engage with this highly dynamic area of health care education are essential to the role, with experience of working in partnership and complex multiple site organisations either in Higher Education or the NHS a significant advantage. As the School has ambitious plans to grow and transform a background in project/change management would also be beneficial. A demonstrable track record of managing the operation of bespoke and ‘off the shelf’ electronic systems, including working with developers and stakeholders to drive innovation and implement change would be advantageous.

    The post holder must model a high professional standard and be willing to work flexibly and creatively, both independently and as part of a team of peers, in a highly demanding environment.

    Applications are invited for an individual to join the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) as a Senior Lecturer in Patient Safety and Improvement Science. This post represents a new and exciting challenge for a mid-career academic who wants to conduct research and teaching at the cutting edge.  

    The successful applicant will have a track record of high quality research in an area relevant to patient safety or quality improvement in healthcare and will be expected to grow a research portfolio that has the potential to be recognised internationally and to contribute to the teaching and assessment of HYMS students in these areas.

     With an undergraduate degree in the social sciences, psychology or a health related discipline and a PhD in a topic commensurate with the research themes described above, we are looking to appoint a self-motivated academic who wants to work in a multi-professional and inter-disciplinary environment. The successful candidate will be someone who can build collaborative links and who thrives in an environment in which working across boundaries and in collaboration with managers, policy makers, health professionals and patients is essential.

    The successful candidate will have a track record in obtaining research funding and will be in a strong position to apply to NIHR and other funding streams. They should have a clear plan for future research in their own field of expertise. We will therefore appoint a candidate who has the drive to develop their research in new directions to respond to regional and national priorities. 

    The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) brings together the strengths of Universities of Hull and York in the life, clinical, health and social sciences.  It works closely with other departments in the Universities and many staff are embedded in jointly managed academic centres in host departments.
