The post-holder will join a vibrant, multi-disciplinary team, committed to providing high-quality education to our students.  This includes inspiring the next generation of pharmacy graduates by adopting innovative approaches to clinical teaching, informed by our research, in order to breed inquisitive thinkers capable of effective decision-making.
