We wish to appoint an experienced, enthusiastic and motivated individual who can take responsibility for the theme ‘Medical Ethics, Legal and Professional Responsibilities’ during the theme head’s period of leave.

The postholder will work mainly in the undergraduate medical programme which has a strong emphasis on ethics though contributions to other BSc and MSc programmes in the College will also be required.
