The Doctoral Programme in Clinical Psychology, which is located in the Division of Health Research and Faculty of Health and Medicine, is seeking to appoint Senior Lecturers in Clinical Psychology to join our innovative professional training team, within a high-quality research active department.

As part of our response to a substantial expansion in training commissions provided by Health Education England, we are seeking to appoint a senior staff member to help oversee the development of the next generation of NHS clinical psychologists. We are looking to appoint a candidate whose skills and experiences will complement our existing expertise in clinical psychology and to further develop our research and teaching in this area.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate the potential to make a high-quality contribution to the future profile of clinical psychology and mental health research conducted across the programme and the research groups within the Division of Health Research. 

You will have a Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology or an equivalent such as a DPsych in Counselling Psychology or a PhD with appropriate experience in clinical psychology research. You will also be able to deliver leadership in high quality and engaging teaching and should have particular experience in supervising doctorate students. You must be able to demonstrate a commitment to professional training, and inclusive practices in relation to it.

Primary duties of the post will comprise taking key responsibilities and leading on certain elements of the programme on behalf of the directors, the supervision of doctoral trainee research, supporting teaching and assessment activities on the programme and providing pastoral support to trainees. Professionally qualified appointees may also have the opportunity to engage in activities such as clinical interventions and supervision and evaluation of clinical practice as part of their overall workload. 

The Faculty provides an environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each employee, promoting a healthy work-life balance. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education.
