The University of Southampton is a global centre for excellence in research and education and a founding member of the Russell Group. The Centre for Learning Anatomical Sciences (CLAS) is part of the Academic Unit of Medical Education, in the Faculty of Medicine. We are located in a recently refurbished facility at Southampton General Hospital where we benefit from a resource rich creative environment and the close proximity of our clinical colleagues.

Our principal role is to develop and deliver human anatomy teaching and learning for undergraduates. Teaching areas include gross anatomy, microanatomy, developmental anatomy and neuroanatomy. Members of academic staff also have curriculum management and development roles in the Faculty and wider University.

In this role, you will focus initially on teaching anatomy to undergraduate medical students studying on the BMBS programmes. Your teaching contributions will include practicals, workshops and lectures and you will take a leadership role for one area of provision e.g. musculoskeletal. You will contribute to assessments and the analysis and evaluation of anatomy teaching. There will be opportunities to develop and deliver innovative teaching and learning approaches and to undertake leadership, management and engagement activities within the Academic Unit and Faculty. In addition to undergraduate medical teaching, you may contribute to courses for a range of postgraduate professionals including surgeons, anaesthetists and other health professionals.

We are seeking to appoint a Medical or Science graduate with a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in a related area. The successful candidate would have a detailed understanding and knowledge of anatomy and experience teaching anatomy within higher education. Experience teaching medical students would be desirable.
