Criteria for Appointment
Primarily based at one of the regional partner NHS Trusts which teach University of Cambridge medical students, the duties of an Associate Lecturer, as defined by Statutes and Ordinances of the University of Cambridge (Statute D), are:
- to advance knowledge in his/her subject;
- to instruct students;
- to promote not less than 16 hours of lectures or their equivalent per academic year
For those involved with the teaching of clinical medical students, it would normally be expected that the 16 hours of lectures (or equivalent) would be over and above routine teaching in clinical environments such as on wards and in outpatients.
The period of tenure is up to five years (or for so long as the appointee holds their substantive employment, whichever is the shorter); it is renewable on the same terms.
Applications for the title are considered annually in September by the Appointments Committee of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine. Prospective applicants should already be making and be able to demonstrate the required contribution to teaching.
In the case of applications based wholly or in part on clinical medical student teaching, prospective applicants should review the undergraduate Clinical Course information published on the Clinical School website at http://www.medschl.cam.ac.uk/education/courses/standard/. The Committee will seek advice from the relevant Specialty Director.
In the case of applications based wholly or in part on the teaching of Graduate Students, prospective applicants should familiarise themselves with the materials published on the website of the Graduate School of Life Sciences (http://www.gradschl.lifesci.cam.ac.uk/). The Committee will seek advice from the relevant Academic Head of Department.
Applicants would normally be expected to have completed as a minimum the Addenbrooke’s Training the Trainers course and the Education Supervisor Programme, or equivalent courses elsewhere. In addition, they should have undertaken Equality and Diversity training (either through the University or the NHS) within the last three years.
