Applications are invited for the above post from UK registered Dietitians (or those eligible for registration). This offers an exciting opportunity to be involved in the dietetic education at the University of Nottingham and would be suitable for candidates with prior experience in higher education or practicing Dietitians from any specialist area who wish to embark on such a career. 

The post is based within the Division of Food, Nutrition and Dietetics in the School of Biosciences. The School offers a four-year integrated undergraduate Master’s degree in Dietetics and Nutrition (MNutr) leading to eligibility to apply for registration in dietetics with the Health and Care Professions Council.  The Division also delivers other Nutrition-related degrees, including a three-year BSc degree in Nutrition, which has been accredited by the Association for Nutrition, and a BSc in Food Sciences and Nutrition.  In addition, we also offer a MSc in Clinical Nutrition as well as MSc in Nutritional Sciences.

The successful candidate will be expected to predominantly contribute to the teaching and related administration of a number of modules within the programmes associated with our dietetics associated degrees, but they will also make contributions to our nutrition-related degrees.

Candidates should hold a current registration as a Dietitian in the UK (or be eligible for such registration), ideally with significant experience (or equivalent). It would be desirable if they held a higher degree (Masters) in dietetics or healthcare management.
