The School of Natural and Social Sciences at University of Gloucestershire is looking to appoint to two Lecturer posts in Psychology. 


Psychological Sciences is based within the School of Natural and Social Sciences, located on the attractive Francis Close Hall campus in Cheltenham.  The School comprises three Subject Communities—Psychological Sciences, Social Sciences, and Environmental Sciences—with over 1000 students and 50 academic, technician and administrative staff.  Our BPS-accredited provision is experiencing year-on-year growth with approximately 350 students across our courses.


The successful applicants for this post will contribute to our BSc (Hons) Psychology and BSc (Hons) Criminology and Psychology.  They can also expect to teach on our conversion course, MSc Psychology.  The ability to make a contribution to MSc Forensic Psychology would also be an asset.


We are particularly seeking candidates who can offer specialisms in psychology of mental health and wellbeing; clinical psychology; community psychology; and social psychology, especially behaviour change.  At least one of the candidates will be required to offer teaching and supervision in critical methodology and qualitative research methods.


Applicants for these Lecturer scale posts are likely to be at a relatively early stage of their career, but should demonstrate potential to become engaging and innovative lecturers who share our student-centred ethos.  Appointees will be expected to offer a high standard of support and to be willing to make a positive contribution to student recruitment and outreach activities.  To help students achieve their career ambitions they will develop contacts and activities which give students relevant experience, including placements and volunteering opportunities.  Our courses have distinctive strengths in applied psychology founded on a rigorous theoretical framework and the ideal candidates would engage students in appreciation of this relationship.


Your research profile should be consistent with career stage, with potential for submission to REF2021 and a clear plan for how your research will be developed for submission to the following REF exercise.  In post it is expected that the appointees will collaborate with other members of the team in developing research projects and in establishing partnerships with external organisations for knowledge transfer.  


Based at our attractive campus in Cheltenham, we offer a welcoming and positive working environment. 


These permanent positions are available for a start on or shortly after March 2019.
