As a TEF-Gold rated institution, the University of Lincoln is ranked 22nd in the UK in the Guardian University Guide and 42nd in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. As part of a Global Chairs campaign, and to invest further in research leadership where we know we can make a significant difference, the University now seeks to appoint a Global Chair in Rural Health and Social Care as part of its Global Chairs Campaign.

Suitable candidates will possess significant academic standing and accomplishment in the field, as well as the vision, leadership, experience and enthusiasm to make a real impact in building and advancing research activity at the University in this area. The postholder will address the conditions and consequences related to particular rural challenges. Expertise in Clinical Trials and/or Health Services research would be particularly useful.

We understand that research is at the heart of what it means to be a university. We are proud to be home to world-class researchers who are making significant contributions to their subject areas. This was reflected in the latest Research Excellence Framework, where more than half of the University’s research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent.

We are a fast-growing university, where staff and students work collaboratively on pioneering research that makes a tangible difference to people’s lives. Our researchers are tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems, from the fight against drug-resistant bacteria to mitigating the impact of climate change.

The School of Health and Social Care has established a regional, national and international reputation for its teaching, its research and its broad educational opportunities. The Lincoln Institute for Health, a cross disciplinary institute of the University, draws on expertise from science, social science and arts to create a unique platform for health research. The University has also recently established, in partnership with the University of Nottingham and our local health community, a new Medical School.
