Job description

Job summary

We are looking for a Teaching Fellow in Medical Education Research to join the Medical Education Innovation and Research Centre (MEdIC). MEdIC is committed to exploring global advances in medical education innovation and research that have a sustainable, equitable and transformational impact on society. MEdIC aims to support development of doctors with the knowledge, skills and values to address society’s evolving health and social needs safely and compassionately, including for the most vulnerable in society.

Approaches enable medical students to learn the art of medicine in context, through taking on meaningful healthcare roles that directly add value to the communities and health service within which they work.

The current research team within MEdIC consists of clinical academics and educational researchers. The team is integrated within a busy, award-winning undergraduate Primary Care department that oversees numerous placements of medical students across their six-year degree at Imperial.

Currently a diverse range of educational research projects are undertaken within MEdIC, such as coaching approaches in education, diversity and inclusion, longitudinal learning and professional identity development. Whilst the majority of the research projects arise from the innovative work of the wider primary care education department, there are also a significant number of national and international research collaborations.

Duties and responsibilities

You will work closely with the current research team, members of the wider primary care education department, others involved in education across Imperial and with our external collaborators, contributing to a rich range of research projects. This would include contributing to study design, overseeing study implementation and contributing to dissemination.

You will also have the opportunity to develop your own research profile and to lead on research projects that are of interest to you and the department. In addition, you will be expected to submit publications to refereed journals and to help seek external research funding.

Essential requirements

You should have a master’s in Education, Medical Education, Psychology, Public Health, Social Science or a closely related discipline. Experience of disseminating research and of managing research or complex projects are also required.

You should also be able to use a range of educational research methodologies and data analysis techniques and have team working and leadership skills.

Further information

This role is full-time and fixed-term for two years.

Should you require any further details on the role please contact: Jo Horsburgh – j.horsburgh@imperial.ac.uk or Ravi Parekh - r.parekh@imperial.ac.uk
