What we are looking for

The Department of Nursing has several teaching and research positions available, so we are looking for lecturers at different stages of their academic career who want to join us to undertake research, teaching and management tasks.

Junior candidates will be able to join our current research lines. Senior candidates will be able to join our team according to their own research proposals, aligned with the Department and continuing to work with other researchers they already work with.

Therefore, candidates will form part of our teaching and research team at the Department of Nursing at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, renowned for its educational innovation and research projects in health education and for contributing its vision from the perspective of critically ill and hospitalised patients.

The Emerging Research Group in Health Education UIC Barcelona is an interdisciplinary and educationally innovative research group, whose main lines of research include:

  • Healthcare education: improving healthcare knowledge and its determining factors, on the one hand for specific population groups (population at social risk, carers and maternal-childhood and family environments) and on the other hand, to educate people (mainly chronically ill and complex patients) as well as equipping future healthcare professionals to become healthcare trainers.
  • Professional Healthcare Education: research related to innovative learning methodologies which achieve professional excellence among doctors and nurses at the university from day one, as well as encouraging professional maturity. The field of research covers clinical professional and cross-disciplinary competences, placing an emphasis on safe care praxis for patients and relational competences (teamwork, communication and emotional intelligence), self-management, prioritisation and decision-making in a healthcare environment, including complex situations.
