The Psychology Department at Nottingham Trent University is seeking an additional lecturer in counselling psychology and/or forensic mental health to further strengthen our research and to meet the demands of new course provision and increased student numbers in our undergraduate, MSc and doctoral programmes.

Mental Health and Well-being Psychology at NTU

We have a strong commitment to wellbeing and mental health at all levels of our provision. On our undergraduate programme we have a mental health pathway for students who want to focus on this area. The third year of this course has a number of specialist mental health options which always attract a lot of students. We have successful and popular MSc courses in Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health, Forensic Mental Health and Psychology in Clinical Practice. We employ practitioners and academics to deliver these courses and we place a high value on practice-based teaching. We welcome applications from practitioners who are looking towards a career in HE while still maintaining their links with practice.

We want to add counselling psychologists and forensic mental health specialists to our staff to broaden the range of courses we can offer and to strengthen our work in wellbeing and mental health. We want to widen the range of options available for students and to enhance their career opportunities.

In the submission to REF2014 (Unit of Assessment A04, 60% of our research outputs were identified as internationally excellent or world leading and 100% of our research impact was recognised as internationally excellent with 73% described as world leading. Our commitment to teaching is shown by the collaboration of over 50 staff to create an introductory text for SAGE (2nd edition published in 2015, 3rd edition in progress) and by our showing in the National Student Survey (NSS) where we have been in the top ten of UK Psychology departments for the last two years.

You should be an enthusiastic teacher with excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a commitment to supporting students' development at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Mentoring and support for development in both teaching and research will be provided to appointees appropriate to their level of experience.
