The University of Luxembourg, through its Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine, aims for excellence in research and in the education of biomedical sciences and health professions. A new Bachelor's degree in Medicine started in September 2020. Three Medical Specializations, in General Medicine, Neurology and Oncology are also offered.

The University of Luxembourg will organize these Bachelors by combining theoretical training using the latest technology with practical training in hospitals, clinics, or outpatient clinics in collaboration with the various institutes in the country and foreign partners.

  Your Role...

He/she will be under the line management of Prof. Dr Marie Friedel and will contribute directly to the development of the new Bachelors of Science in Nursing (speciality Pediatrics but also to other specialities and initial bachelor) and to other bachelors in Health Science.

He/She will contribute to establish the training plan for specialized nurses, contribute to organize theoretical and practical teaching, and the evaluation during and at the end of the course, in relation with the teachers and tutors of the clinical placements. More particularly, the presence on the campus of students in medicine, biology, nursing and midwifery provides us with the possibility to establish common courses, to help students discover and understand the specificities of their different training and future professions at a very early stage and to have them work together in modern interprofessional simulation environments. This pooling of teaching will be based on the collaborative and joint work of teachers from the different health programmes.

Research: The candidate will be responsible for developing his/her own research programme and to contribute to the Nursing Education Research Programmes aimed at: the improvement of the quality of care and patient safety; patient, families, population well-being; quality of work life; and this within the general framework of improving public health, in collaboration with the patient him/herself (“partner patient”), with internal partners in the various Faculties or interdisciplinary Centres, and with external national or international partners.
