Job Description

Lecturer in Psychology (clinical or counselling specialism) (0.7 full-time equivalent)

School of Applied Social Science

Location: Brighton - Falmer

Salary: £35,845 to £42,792 

This is an opportunity for a lecturer (teaching and research focused) with a specialism in clinical or counselling psychology to join a growing team with an established reputation in applied social, cultural and critical psychology.

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. In addition, you will have a solid knowledge of general psychology as a basis for teaching on 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 permanent, 0.7FTE post and job sharers are welcome to apply. We understand that you may wish to continue working in practice alongside this role, and the University has a variety of mechanisms that can support this. The start date would be as soon as mutually agreeable.

We recognise that there is a lot of uncertainty in the sector at present. University of Brighton is currently delivering teaching via a blend of online and face-to-face modes and the majority of teaching is likely to continue that way for the spring term. Full support would be provided for delivering teaching in this way. We have a sociable and supportive staff group who meet regularly online, and this post will additionally be supported by the Psychology with Counselling Studies course team.

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Carl Walker at:
