Join our highly supportive team where you will be helping to teach enthusiastic and aspirational MSc students in Applied Clinical Psychology who will want to learn from you about putting theory into practice.

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.

This post is a fantastic opportunity for psychologists or researchers working in or closely with clinical practice, clinical psychologists, or therapists with a degree in psychology 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 early in 2022, but 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.

We are able to offer the role on a full time or part time basis working a minimum 14.6 hours per week (0.4 FTE). If you are selected for interview you will be asked your preferences.

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.

This role requires an Enhanced DBS Check with Child Barring which we would organise.
