The School of Psychology is looking to recruit one full-time, education and research-focused faculty member at Lecturer level, with expertise in clinical psychology and mental health that complements or extends existing research strengths in the School of Psychology.
Mental health is a strategic focus for the School's research, and we have a diverse portfolio of work focused on well-being and health, mood and anxiety, and anomalous experience and neurodivergence, as well as specific labs in numerous specialisms such as psychological therapies, psychosis, sleep, digital mental health, child and adolescent mental health, and addiction. We work closely with the Brighton and Sussex Medical School, have strong research links with local NHS trusts, and are heavily involved in the regional NIHR Applied Research Collaboration.
The School has seen substantial growth over the past five years and we are recruiting excellent candidates to join our motivated, energetic, and ambitious faculty, contribute to our high-quality research portfolio, teaching and learning, and to promote outstanding research and student experience. We are particularly keen to receive applications from candidates with a strong research profile, who would also be able to teach diverse groups of students in the area of clinical psychology and/or mental health, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The post holder will also undertake supervision of postgraduate dissertations and PhD supervision in the area of clinical psychology and/or mental health research.
The University of Sussex is a leading teaching and research institution and is ranked within the top 200 in the world. The School of Psychology at the University of Sussex is one of the most academically diverse and influential centres for the study of psychology in the UK with considerable strengths in both research and teaching.

Psychology at Sussex was ranked 18th out of nearly 100 institutions in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework and receives excellent student ratings for its undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. We offer a very highly regarded undergraduate degree course and a suite of PGT courses, and we have a substantial group of doctoral students, supported in part by ESRC, BBSRC, and Leverhulme Trust funded doctoral training programmes.
