Job Description

Lecturer in Psychology - clinical or counselling psychology specialism

Reference: HA3178-21-091

School of Applied Social Science

Salary: £35,845 to £42,792 per annum

This is an opportunity for a lecturer (teaching and research focused) with a specialism in clinical or counselling psychology to join a team with an established reputation in applied social, cultural and critical psychology. The new lecturer would be part of a rapidly growing and collegiate group of staff who focus on mental health and counselling research.

A PhD or Professional Doctorate in Clinical or Counselling Psychology (or near completion) is essential, as well as up-to-date, sound knowledge of counselling and psychotherapy theory and practice. You will also have the ability to contribute to a variety of core BPS psychology curriculum areas across our undergraduate and postgraduate psychology programmes. You must be eligible for membership of the British Psychological Society.

This is a permanent, full-time post to start in September 2021. If you wish to continue working in practice alongside this role, the University has a variety of mechanisms that may be able to support this. Job sharers are also welcome to apply.

The University offers a wide range of benefits, such as a generous annual leave package and travel loan schemes.

We are committed to diversifying the racial and ethnic profile of our community and especially welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates. We are seeking colleagues who have an understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion and how these principles can be applied in HE settings. We value self-awareness in terms of understanding candidates’ own culture, identity, biases, prejudices, power, privilege and stereotypes, as well as a willingness to challenge practices that present barriers to different groups.

In Psychology we have a sociable and supportive staff group who meet regularly. This post will be additionally supported by the BSc Psychology with Counselling Studies team.

We recognise that currently there remains some uncertainty in the sector due to the impact of the pandemic. We are growing our team in response to buoyant student numbers, and whilst the University of Brighton is currently delivering blended online/face-to-face teaching, we are planning for a phased return to on-campus teaching.

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Carl Walker

Further details:

The University is committed to an inclusive environment which embraces equality and diversity in our working, learning, research and teaching environment. We particularly encourage applicants from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) background because the university is underrepresented by BAME staff.

Closing date: Tuesday 20 April 2021.
