Opening Date:

Closing Date:
10 Nov 2019
Salary Range:

The School of Health & Social Care has an excellent reputation for teaching and research. Our academic members of staff include clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychological therapists, nurses, social workers, oral health practitioners and sociologists.

The School of Health and Social Care is seeking to appoint a part-time Lecturer in Clinical Psychology Therapy. We would particularly welcome applications from individuals that are keen to develop research, drawing from, and building upon, existing research expertise within the school and applicant’s own research profile. Applicants should have a strong commitment to team working and to enhancing the contribution of both research and education to Clinical Psychology.

The post includes a significant contribution to our Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme at Colchester campus. It is expected that as a member of staff you would assist the Subject Lead, providing practical support to the team and undertake programme/ module leadership and teaching, assessment duties where needed.

This role will require management, administration and organisation alongside support of students on our existing programmes, and generally enhancing our research-led teaching in Clinical Psychology. We have a high reputation for our innovative educational delivery of Clinical Psychology programmes (100% Employability, ranked gold in 2017 for the Teaching Excellence Framework, and named University of the Year 2018). We aim for excellence in research as well as in education and are looking for candidates who can contribute to both.

In April 2017 we were awarded a silver Athena SWAN award which recognises the commitment the School has toward equality and development of an inclusive culture, promoting dignity and respect. These are, of course, qualities that are also endorsed by the values of the NHS constitution with which all staff and students engage.

We particularly welcome applications from those who identify as male or non-binary and those from an ethnic minority as they are under-represented in the School of Health & Social Care
