Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Psychology

The Department of Psychology at Nottingham Trent University

 

The Psychology Department at Nottingham Trent University is seeking  additional lecturers in psychology 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. We welcome applications from all areas of psychology and we particularly welcome applications that show expertise in qualitative methods and health.

 

Psychology at NTU

We are the largest provider of fulltime undergraduate psychology courses in the UK and attract eyewatering numbers of applications and hence students. Our most popular course is the single honours degree and to manage the numbers on that degree we are now segmenting it into pathways focused towards our MSc courses. We aim to integrate all levels of our teaching as much as possible and to also draw on our research activity toinform our sessions with students. We have four research clusters which house 12 active research groups. We have particular expertise in the psychology of gambling, driving and sleep.  We support research at all levels and although we are currently focused on the REF we recognize that this is not the only measure of research quality and value. We support staff to develop a research plan that fits within the wide research activity of the Department.

 

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, http://www.ref.ac.uk/) 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 press) 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 three years. Ongoing strategic investment in terms of staffing numbers, the continuing professional development of staff, research support, laboratory facilities and funded PhD students continues to allow us to develop further and to meet the ambitions of the University’s strategic plan across the full range of our activities.

 

Applicants

Applicants will have a PhD or professional doctorate in Psychology (or equivalent). 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.

 

The University

At NTU, we recognise that our greatest strengths lie in the energy, expertise, and experience that our colleagues bring.  Thanks to our £421million investment in estates and equipment across our three campuses since 2003/4, we deliver an inspirational learning environment for both staff and students.  Our research facilities allow us to shape lives and society, which is central to our mission and achievements of our aims.  Our rise up the league tables, alongside a number of prestigious national awards, demonstrate the potential that creating and forging excellent partnerships, while harnessing the talents of all our people, can bring. Most notably we have been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research. We are now looking for more passionate, ambitious people to join us and help build the university of the future.
