Both posts are available as either full-time or part-time positions. We are supportive of job-share opportunities.

Newman University enjoys a strong and expanding profile in Psychology. Psychology currently has four flourishing undergraduate Psychology programmes: Psychology, Psychology and Counselling Studies, Psychology and Childhood Studies, and Psychology with Criminology. We also offer these four programmes as a four-year degree with foundation year. All of our undergraduate Psychology programmes are BPS accredited, and we are a recognised market leader with our innovative online MSc Programme in Clinical Applications of Psychology. We have recently developed a MSc Psychology (Conversion) blended learning programme, which is significantly taught online. The subject area has also recently received BPS accreditation for a BSc SH Forensic Psychology programme.

We are seeking to appoint a full-time Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology to join our expanding subject area. We are open to job-share opportunities and so part-times roles are available for suitably qualified candidates. The successful candidate (or candidates) will play a key role in designing the new Forensic psychology modules for the Forensic Psychology programme and will make a substantial contribution to the core teaching on our other BPS undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. If appointed at Senior Lecturer level, the expectation is that the candidate (or candidates) would become programme leader(s) for this programme.

The post holder(s) will design, plan and deliver a range of learning activities utilising a range of teaching methods, prepare and mark assessments, improve teaching by self-reflection and student feedback, and engage with wider university business. They will also engage in peer-recognised scholarly and research activities, lead Psychology modules, supervise undergraduate and postgraduate students and act as a personal tutor.
