Join our highly supportive team where you will be helping to teach passionate and aspirational undergraduate and postgraduate students in Psychology.

We hope that the successful candidate will be able to start in August 2021, 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, as we work in a hybrid learning environment.

You will be preparing and delivering teaching for whole or parts of postgraduate and undergraduate 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 (e.g., organising placements and visits).

About you

  • With a post graduate qualification in Psychology (Health), you will ideally be registered as a practitioner with the HCPC and/or a member of the BPS Division of Health Psychology.
  • With strong communication skills, you will have a breadth and depth of knowledge to lead course development and scholarship activities.
  • You will enjoy teaching and bring with you experience within a practice environment or with a focus on Health Psychology.
  • This is a part-time, fixed term post until December 2021 working 21.90 hours/0.6fte, with the potential to increase the hours and duration of the contract.
