Assistant Professor in Pharmacy Practice

Health & Medical - UK Jobs

The University of Bradford School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences is seeking to appoint a 0.8 FTE Assistant Professor in Pharmacy Practice on a fixed term basis until 31 July 2023, to strengthen our sector-leading teaching of Clinical Pharmacy at the postgraduate level. The key objective of this postholder will be to develop and deliver study days as part of a HEE funded contract to deliver supplementary training for hospital-based trainee pharmacists completing foundation training across the North of England. This training is delivered by the Foundation Training Consortium (FTC), which is a partnership between the University of Bradford, Buttercups and Imaan Healthcare. The FTC are pioneers of innovative education and training for the pharmacy workforce and share a desire to improve the quality of pharmacy education.

The focus of the study days is the development of independent practitioners by expanding clinical, consultation, assessment and decision-making skills; particularly those which are difficult to gain experience of in hospital pharmacy e.g. management of minor ailments.  These are a mix of face-to-face and online and will be delivered across the North. The postholder will therefore be required to travel to deliver the face-to-face days.  The post holder will contribute to teaching professional and clinical practice, help to develop, deliver and assess training packages, modules and short courses to enable trainee and registered pharmacists to develop their skills. 

The post holder will be an experienced practitioner with prior experience of teaching pharmacists or pharmacy students.  Applicants should have a professional background that includes working in patient-facing roles.  You should hold a relevant postgraduate qualification.  You will join a truly innovative School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences, with a suite of postgraduate programmes, a fully integrated MPharm based on Team-based Learning and excellence in research. You will be an experienced and enthusiastic teacher and take a proactive role in developing new learning materials alongside our highly experienced and supportive team.   An independent prescribing qualification is an advantage.

This is a teaching focused post.  The post holder will have the opportunity to participate in research activities in the School.

Informal enquiries prior to application may be made to Dr Gemma Quinn on 01274 233497 or to e-mail address
