The role is to provide academic leadership in dental public health research and teaching. We are seeking an exceptional individual to enable maintenance and improvement of our strong reputation in dental public health research and teaching. This is an exciting opportunity for the right individual to demonstrate creativity and to have their career flourish in this supportive environment. The appointee will have a strong track record. Candidates should be a highly credible dental researcher and clinician. They should publish in high-impact journals and have a history of attracting significant research funding. They will have a history of successful PhD supervision. Their research theme will complement the research strategy of the Institute of Dentistry and the School of Medicine and Dentistry at QMUL.
The Centre for Dental Public Health and Primary Care introduced a DL MSc in ‘Dental Public Health, Policy and Leadership’ two years ago. The Clinical Senior Lecturer will participate in this endeavour by supervising student research projects undertaking the MSc and appropriate DClinDent student research projects. The continued growth of PG research student numbers is dependent on the growth in the number of T&R academic staff. The Clinical Senior Lecturer will be focussed on research rather than the teaching contribution will be by research supervision of student projects.
The continued development of world-class research in population and public health is an area of strategic priority for the School of Medicine and Dentistry in general and the Institute of Dentistry in particular. The Centre of Dental Public Health and Primary Care, which has a focus on reducing oral health inequalities and hence the global burden of oral diseases, plays an important part in this.
We particularly welcome applications from people who identify as Black, Asian, or other ethnicity categories and/or women as these groups are underrepresented at this level at Queen Mary.
