Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, South Parks Road, Oxford Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 p.a. The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences is seeking to appoint a Course Tutor to support the delivery of The University of Oxford Online Programme in Sleep Medicine. This is a postgraduate programme that runs almost entirely online. Students will be working towards either a Postgraduate Diploma or a Master’s qualification. In addition, students may also take individual modules for continuing professional development. The programme aims to provide a broad coverage of sleep medicine, ranging from the physiology of sleep at the molecular level, through to clinical intervention in sleep disorders. The programme is delivered online, with lectures pre-recorded for students to watch in their own time. Lectures are supplemented by live online group discussions, where students come together using web conferencing software to interact with one another and teaching staff.

The role will require for the successful candidate to contribute to the development of the programme, attending committee meetings and working with other members of the team and with other departments to develop new educational tools. This will involve keeping abreast of advances in ‘e-learning’ technologies and supporting the development of new modules. The course tutor will be expected to engage in appropriate administrative processes associated with the course as instructed by the course director. It is expected that the successful candidate will play a key role in the implementation of the summer school, working closely with other members of the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi), but also approaching experts from elsewhere in Oxford and in other institutions.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD/DPhil in human sleep research, or a closely related human research field with an aptitude for teaching and some experience of teaching and research. In order to develop appropriate course material, it is expected that the successful candidate will possess sufficient breadth and knowledge in the subject. Impeccable interpersonal and communication skills are essential, as is a publication record commensurate with current career stage. Previous experience in developing new courses or modules and working in clinical sleep medicine or clinical research would be beneficial.

The post is full-time for a fixed-term until 30 September 2021 in the first instance.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 2 October 2019 will be considered. Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
