The School of Psychology is looking to recruit one full-time, teaching-focused faculty member at Lecturer level, with expertise in positive psychology, wellbeing, and related areas of clinical, health, and/or social psychology. The School has seen substantial growth over the past three years and we are recruiting excellent candidates to join our motivated, energetic, and ambitious faculty, contribute to our high-quality teaching and learning, and promote an outstanding student experience.
We are particularly keen to receive applications from candidates who would be able to teach diverse groups of students (both those with and without psychology backgrounds) in the area of positive psychology and wellbeing. There may also be additional opportunities to contribute to teaching across our undergraduate and postgraduate provision.
