Candidates will contribute to the teaching of our Masters programmes (MSc in Health Psychology and MSc in Applied Clinical Psychology).

The University's research strategy focuses on international excellence, while tackling major global challenges pertaining to three areas of research strength and focus: Health and Wellbeing, Sustainability, and Digital.

  • With strong communication skills, you will have a breadth and depth of knowledge to lead course development and scholarship activities.
  • You will bring with you experience with impact related to your research and teaching.
  • We have one vacancy available, and it is offered on a full time (36.5 hours per week) permanent basis. As part of the application process, you will be asked to state which post you wish to be considered for (Lecturer or Senior Lecturer).
