The Optometry Programme, within the School of Health Professions at the University of Plymouth, is looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our group and be part of our teaching and research activities.

You will work as part of the Optometry team to provide innovative teaching, primarily in undergraduate programmes. This includes the design and preparation of teaching materials, course planning and delivery, and assessment. We are proud to be ranked as one of the top programmes in the most recent National Student Survey. Experience of clinical practice as an Optometrist, and registration with the General Optical Council, are highly desirable. As part of our Eye & Vision research group you will have the opportunity to contribute to our research programme and to publications and grant funding applications if applicable.

This is a fixed-term post to cover a period of maternity leave, which is anticipated to be for approximately 12 months. Full-time and part-time applications are welcomed. This post could be offered as a secondment, however you are required to discuss this with your employer first.

For an informal discussion please contact Dr Stephanie Mroczkowska, Optometry Programme Lead, on: [email protected]
