Salary £31,866 - £36,914

Full time, Permanent



At Teesside University, we are ambitious in our goals, vision and aspirations. We challenge expectations and push the boundaries of what is possible. From transforming our campus through a £300m investment and capital development programme, to creating outstanding, innovative academic programmes, our work is always relevant and purpose-driven.

We believe that innovation powers our steps and are motivated to make a difference through positive social impact. We work in partnership with individuals and businesses to devise creative solutions not limited by imagination. We work at pace, and are always future-facing, with our teaching, learning and research focused on addressing the challenges of tomorrow, today. We do not stand still.

We have an exciting opportunity for a practising Optometrist to join our team to make an effective contribution to the delivery of Optometry programmes, including design, teaching and assessment of modules in Optometry and across the department and wider School.

Applicants must be on the General Optometry Council professional register and will possess a PhD or equivalent doctoral level qualification or will be willing to achieve this within 6 years of appointment. Contemporary Optometry knowledge is essential, as is experience of teaching and assessing students in practice. The ability to contribute to curriculum design is also required, as is the ability to teach at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The Tees Valley is an enjoyable place to live – in the heart of the North of England’s coastline and countryside, with easy access to Durham, Newcastle and York.

This post is available on a full-time or job share basis. (If you wish to apply on a job share basis you must state this on your application).
