The School of Psychology is looking to appoint a teaching-focussed Assistant Professor. The appointment will lead our MSc Psychology (Conversion) degree via distance learning and take responsibility for programme development, organisation and delivery. Applicants must demonstrate expertise in distance learning and leadership in course delivery. They will also be required to contribute to teaching and administration across our campus-based undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

We believe diverse teams deliver the highest quality teaching, research and student experience. To achieve our vision of being among the top ranked Schools in Research, Knowledge Exchange, Education and Student Experience, we are seeking applications from high quality people who will join our community and act as role models for the next generation of psychologists. We understand that our research and teaching are enhanced by having a diversity of opinions that enriches our collegiate community by the sharing of new ideas, lived experiences, broad perspectives and different ways of solving problems. If you can bring this difference this role might be for you.

We are looking for someone to:

  • Develop and lead our MSc teaching provision via distance learning.
  • Demonstrate leadership in course delivery.
  • Work as part of the teaching team to enhance the quality of our teaching delivery via a virtual learning environment.

This post involves overall responsibility for the delivery and development of the MSc Psychology (Conversion) degree via distance learning. It involves the use of a virtual learning environment and innovative methods of virtual teaching to deliver content, facilitate group working, conduct assessments, devise and oversee research projects and give pastoral care. The provision of deep learning is required to achieve high student satisfaction, so, the ability to design, plan and deliver high quality teaching which can be evaluated and reflected upon to achieve the highest outcomes is essential.

The job involves demonstrating high level interpersonal skills with people from all over the world with different needs; working within university regulations and governance in relation to teaching; and getting up to speed with our systems.

The successful candidate needs to be flexible and will be expected to make a wider contribution to the school and institution. They need to be collegiate, involving themselves in additional activities, working in a team to deliver key projects and taking opportunities to represent the school to the outside world.

A PhD in psychology is essential along with evidence of course leadership and delivering Psychology teaching via online methods.

If you’re someone who can bring fresh ideas with all the above, you’re reliable and have an appetite to get involved in the wider aims of the school, we’d encourage you to apply. Provisional interview date: 24 June 2022.
