Join our highly encouraging team where you will help to guide enthusiastic and aspirational postgraduate apprentices who are training to be Clinical Associate Psychologists as part of this exciting new initiative. 

This post is a phenomenal opportunity for clinical psychologists looking to expand their experience and professional development through a role in teaching and training. This post can stand-alone, but for applicants interested in full-time working with a clinical-academic balance, there may be potential for additional employment with a local trust.

You will join us in time to develop the program for the 2022/23 intake, however with flexibility in both the start date and your work hours we will look to provide you the balance you need. 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.

About the role:

  • Preparing and delivering teaching for whole or parts of postgraduate teaching units. 
  • Developing material, delivery of lectures, seminars and tutorials, both online and in person.
  • Supervising assessments and marking of coursework, service relevant research projects and work placement reviews.
  • Providing advice and support to students, as well as undertake teaching-related management and administration duties. 

The MSc Clinical Associate Psychology is one of a suite of postgraduate programmes in applied psychology, including a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Teams work closely together with shared teaching and learning opportunities.

Our Department of Psychology is well known for its excellence in research and teaching, often 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 innovative labs for interview, social group observation, EEG/ERP, virtual reality, psychobiology, eye-tracking, pain, cross-modal, and computerised testing.

We are able to offer the role on a full time or part time basis working a minimum 21.9 hours per week (0.6 FTE). If you are selected for interview you will be asked your preferences.
