Join our highly supportive team where you will be helping to teach enthusiastic and aspirational postgraduate students in Clinical Psychology who will want to learn from you about clinical psychological science, and about putting theory into practice. This post is a good opportunity for clinical psychology scientists, clinical psychologists, or cognitive behaviour therapists with a degree in psychology looking to expand their experience and professional development through a role in teaching and training. Where required, we are keen to support your transition into teaching with a dedicated support team, and the time to study for a teaching qualification, as we work in a hybrid learning environment.

You will be preparing and delivering teaching for whole or parts of postgraduate teaching units. This will include developing the teaching material, delivery of lectures, seminars and tutorials, both online and in person. Alongside the supervision, assessment and marking of coursework and research dissertations, you will provide advice and support to students, as well as undertake teaching-related management and administration duties.   The MSc Applied Clinical Psychology is one of a suite of postgraduate programmes in applied psychology, including a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. The teams work closely together with shared teaching and learning opportunities.

Our Department of Psychology is known for its excellence in research and teaching, regularly appearing in the top 5 in national league tables (e.g., The Complete University Guide). Research in the department occurs across more than six sub-disciplines in psychology, including clinical, cognitive, developmental, environmental, forensic, health, and social psychology.  The department resides in a new purpose-built £30 million building, containing 10,000 square feet of state-of-the-art labs for interview, social group observation, EEG/ERP, virtual reality, psychobiology, eye-tracking, pain, cross-modal, and computerised testing.

Our campus is surrounded by beautiful countryside, and the City of Bath with its historic charm and social activity only a short distance away creates an excellent environment to work.
