Additional Information:

The Psychology Department at Nottingham Trent University is seeking an additional lecturer in Cultural Psychology or Black Psychology to further strengthen our research and to meet the demands of new course provision and increased student numbers in our undergraduate programmes. 

Cultural Psychology at NTU

We have a strong commitment to inclusion and diversity and we want to broaden our curriculum to directly deal with issues around culture and identity. We have a diverse student group and we want to ensure that they all feel included within the curriculum and within the Department. Issues of culture and identity form part of our curriculum and because we want to develop this further we are looking for someone to provide curriculum leadership in this area.

The Department

You will be joining a very large, lively, diverse, collegiate and ambitious group with an excellent reputation for its theoretically informed impactful and applied research and its teaching provision at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

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, 3rdedition 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.

The Department is committed to diversity and provides a lead in the University on initiatives such as Success for All and the application for an Athena Swan award. We welcome applications from individuals who can contribute to a wider departmental focus on cultural psychology. We also welcome applications from under-represented groups and from people who are seeking a part-time contract that, for example combines practitioner work with lecturing.

Appointments will always be made on merit.
