Queen’s University Belfast is one of the prestigious Russell Group of UK research-intensive universities in the UK and Ireland, combining excellence in research and education with a student centred ethos, for our 24,000 students and 4,200 staff, funded through an annual turnover of some £300m.  As a driver of innovation and talent, based on excellence and global strategic partnerships, we offer generous employment terms and underpinned by excellent lifestyle benefits including opportunities for family friendly working and support for wellbeing.

The School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences has over 560 staff and over 2000 students.

The University has invested more than £100 million in research and teaching infrastructure across the Health Sciences and Royal Victoria Hospital Campuses, and will invest a further £350m in buildings and facilities across the University over the next ten years to support the University’s Vision 2020.

By providing high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate training in Medicine, Dentistry and a range of Biomedical Science subjects, the School can and has delivered life-changing quality experiences to our students. Most importantly, this University recognises that knowledge knows no boundaries, and Queen’s is competing increasingly strongly in the global higher education market place.  The Centre for Biomedical Sciences Education sits within the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences.  The teaching staff within the Centre comprises enthusiastic teachers with world-class research in the biomedical sciences.

As an employee within the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences in Queen’s University, you are part of a continuum, which has survived successfully for more than one hundred and seventy years.

Our five core values – Integrity, Connected, Ambition, Respect, Excellence – are shared by our staff and students, representing the expectations we have for ourselves and each other, guiding our day-to-day decisions and the way we behave as individuals in an international organisation.
