We are seeking an enthusiastic, solution focussed motivated academic in physiotherapy and rehabilitation who has had a breadth of experience working across Physiotherapy, educational and / or organisational roles.
You will have the opportunity to use your knowledge and experience innovatively, developing and delivering clinical and theoretical teaching and designing assessment to support learning and enable student success. Depending on your experience and prior level of study you will be involved in postgraduate and doctoral education.

We work across 3 home NHS Trusts within Bradford Airedale and Craven as well as across other NHS Trusts and private, independent, voluntary and sporting organisations in our region and further afield.
You will demonstrate a willingness to be future oriented whilst contributing to the School of Allied Health Professions and Midwifery, making use of the different development opportunities available to you. You will work collaboratively with our service user and carer group and with our students to continually improve and develop our programmes and business opportunities. You are expected to become involved in research opportunities alongside the work of our research Professors.

In addition to learning and teaching, the University empowers and encourages staff to develop their own research profile, and to participate in internationally leading, interdisciplinary research and innovation that will shape and benefit future societies. Our internationally renowned applied health research undertaken in partnership with the NHS is impacting positively on health outcomes locally and regionally and is contributing to knowledge of international significance. Colleagues from our faculty helped to establish the Born in Bradford cohort study and continue to lead many of its recent developments. The University has invested significantly in high quality research facilities and space such as the Digital Health Enterprise Zone (DHEZ, in collaboration with the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council), and the Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research (CAHR, in collaboration with the University of Leeds, Bradford Institute for Health Research, and the Wolfson Institute). The latter is supported by high quality new appointments at senior university level many of them in our faculty: Prof Siobhan Reilly, new Director of the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies and lead for Healthy Aging, Prof Rebecca Randell lead for Health Technologies for Quality and Safety, Dr Andy Daly-Smith lead for Healthy Childhood and Physical Activity. We have proven additional strengths in Diversity and Inclusion (Prof Udy Archibong) as well as Radiography and Imaging (Prof Beverly Snaith and Prof Maryann Hardy).

We welcome applicants who bring a diversity of professional and/or lived experience from across communities who are currently underrepresented in our teams, including individuals from BAME and LGBTQ+ communities, who would be positive role models for our students, colleagues and service users.
The University offers an attractive range of staff benefits, including a career development framework, discounted Gym membership and will support relocation assistance. We are also open to discussing potential secondments or working arrangements with current employers.

Due to the sensitive nature of this post, applicants will be required to disclose details of any criminal record including convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings and any other information, which may have a bearing on their suitability for the post. The University of Bradford is an equal opportunities employer and disclosure need not necessarily be a bar to obtaining the position.
