Job Description

Lecturer in Forensic Clinical Psychology (teaching-focused) – 55855
School of Psychology
Part-time: 60%
Grade 8 - Starting salary is normally in the range £38,896 to £46,414. With potential progression once in post to £52,219 a year. Please note salary is pro rata of the full time equivalent. 

The School of Psychology aims to recruit to a new post in forensic-clinical psychology that will develop and support the innovative combined Forensic Clinical Doctorate in psychology. The post will develop and deliver programmes primarily on the postgraduate ForenClinPsyD course. This is a unique Doctorate that enables trainees who qualify to register as both Forensic and Clinical Psychologists with the BPS and HCPC.

The successful candidate will be expected to have a qualification recognised by the HCPC and BPS in either forensic or clinical psychology (or ideally both). Successful applicants will also be expected to work on postgraduate and CPD programmes as appropriate to the forensic (and clinical) disciplinary area, providing leadership in teaching in the subject and to contribute to the management, leadership and enterprise activities of the School of Psychology and the Centre for Applied Psychology. 

They will also be expected to support the development and management of Clinical and Forensic placements in practice. While the post is teaching focussed it will involve significant amounts of supervision of trainee research.

The post will be based in the Centre for Applied Psychology at the University of Birmingham. The centre is a new initiative that brings together all of the applied groups within the School of Psychology and provides an exciting opportunity to develop and integrate applied psychology within the school. This will provide excellent systems for support and development for the successful candidate.

The University of Birmingham is an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from currently under-represented groups. The School of Psychology has a Bronze Athena SWAN award. It strives to be a flexible and supportive environment that enables all of its staff to flourish
