The Academic Environment

The Faculty of Health is one of the major UK centres for education and research in health and related subjects.

With origins dating back to 1828, the Faculty has a long-standing tradition of excellence in clinical education and research. The Faculty is home to three specialist schools: the School of Medicine and Population Health, the School of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery and the School of Clinical Dentistry. Over 2,500 students study each year on over 40 different courses, and over 200 students are registered on research degrees within the Faculty. Independent assessments of our teaching and research quality rate us as among the best in the UK.

These new posts are most likely to sit within the School of Medicine & Population Health.

With around 1,000 members of staff, the School is a vibrant community that supports a broad portfolio of excellent, internationally-recognised research that ranges from basic science right through to research on international health systems. Our research is supported by competitive funding from major national and international research bodies including the UK government, research councils, industrial partners and charities – the faculty’s current research portfolio is in excess of £30M.

We have a strong focus on innovation and ensuring that our research has impact locally, regionally, nationally and globally. These new posts will benefit from a supportive research environment with core technical support and access to world-class laboratory facilities. Our capabilities also include an internationally renowned evidence synthesis and health economics unit in the Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research.

We host a vibrant postgraduate research community and have strong links to centres of research excellence across the University of Sheffield, providing access to state-of-the-art imaging, molecular biology, microbiology, materials, bioinformatics and biological services facilities. We provide high quality, innovative teaching that equips tomorrow’s clinicians, scientists and health professionals with the skills and knowledge they need to make a substantial and lasting positive impact on the health of the population.
