So, what will the role involve?

The School of Health and Society is pleased to announce that due to growth in the subject area of Psychology (Forensic) and the launch of a new MSc Forensic Psychology in September 2024, we are seeking to appoint a permanent Senior Lecturer to contribute to our Undergraduate and Postgraduate provision. The role can be offered on a fractional or full-time basis, by negotiation.

As an accredited Forensic Psychologist, the role of Senior Lecturer will see you working to ensure we build a vibrant, successful, student experience. This will involve contributing to both operational and strategic decision making, notably aligned with our new MSc Forensic Psychology programme. This programme is considered a key addition to our portfolio, building on excellent research expertise in the discipline area.

You will also contribute to one or more of our research themes.
