Lecturer in Psychology
01 November 2017
Interview date: 01 December 2017
Candidates are invited to apply for a permanent, full time post in the Department of Psychology. The Department is expanding due to significant and sustained success in student recruitment and satisfaction, research and innovation.
We offer a vibrant and supportive academic community with an excellent research environment and facilities, and opportunities for professional development for staff. We have a track record of providing an exceptional educational experience for our students. The Department is committed to equality and diversity and fully engages with Athena Swan, currently holding a Bronze Award.
We welcome applications from candidates who can enrich (but do not replicate) the Department’s existing strengths in forensic psychology / psychology and law. The ideal candidate will have a strong theoretical and research background in a core area of psychology (e.g., cognitive, developmental, evolutionary, individual differences, methods, neuropsychology, social) but will also demonstrate an active research and teaching focus in forensic psychology / psychology and law, and will be able to contribute to the Department’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework.
We have a policy of linking our teaching, research and innovation, and are seeking highly motivated and collegial individuals who, in addition to being passionate about their research, can also deliver high quality engaging teaching and supervision related to Forensic Psychology on our undergraduate and postgraduate (including distance learning) degrees.
For an informal discussion of the above post please contact Dr James Ost, Head of Department, Department of Psychology.
