Job Description

Closing Date: Wednesday 7th June 2017

The Department of Psychology at the University of Bath is completing a significant expansion. The Department occupies a new purpose-built five storey building, containing two floors of laboratories, including state-of-the-art EEG/ERP, virtual reality, observation, psychobiology, eye-tracking, pain, cross-modal and computerised testing labs.

The Department operates a highly successful DClinPsych programme with accreditation from the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies.  We are seeking applicants who have the capacity to function in the role of Clinical Director.  Research excellence will be a more important consideration than precise area of focus, but applicants must have the capacity to teach on issues in Clinical Psychology at a postgraduate level.

The Department has an established tradition of ‘theoretically informed applied psychology’.  We are seeking applicants with demonstrable research impact. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise, staff were returned in different units of assessment, the largest of which (Allied Health) obtained the highest REF2014 rating across the whole University. The University was ranked 12th overall in the UK in REF2014. The Department was placed second in the country in The Complete University Guide, The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016. More information about the Department can be found at

The University of Bath is situated in the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath and is part of the GW4 group of leading Universities (with Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter). Bath is also a member of the ERSC-funded South West Doctoral Training Partnership, which provides up to 45 PhD studentships each year across the partner institutions.  Bath is 15 minutes from Bristol by train and 90 minutes from London and Oxford.

As part of the application process, candidates will be asked to state which post they wish to be considered for (Senior Lecturer or Reader).
