The School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln is enjoying an exciting period of expansion and is seeking to further support and develop teaching and research in the school through the creation of a number of Lectureship/Senior Lectureship positions in Psychology.

Applicants could be from any area of psychology, however the School has an expanding portfolio of applied psychology programmes (Clinical psychology, Forensic psychology, Counselling, Coaching) and this is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the development of theoretical and applied psychology at Lincoln. Experience in an applied setting and professional recognition (HCPC, BABCP, BACP, etc.) would be an advantage. Applicants with expertise in developmental/educational/health psychology would also be particularly welcome. 

This is a chance to work collaboratively with senior researchers within the school to support existing and develop new research programmes. It is expected that the appointee will be willing to contribute to supervision of junior research staff (dependent upon level of appointment) and PhD students as well as making contributions to undergraduate and post-graduate teaching within the school including supervision of student research projects.

The School of Psychology has moved into a new purpose built building with an extensive range of well-equipped dedicated research facilities including EEG, TMS, tDCS, VR, Eye tracking (Tobii, Eyelink, DPI, Ober and VSG), Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound imaging, Sleep and Baby labs and resources to support comparative / animal based research in the field. In addition to extensive new laboratory facilities, the School of Psychology has invested in a new 3D scanner which can take 3D pictures of faces and bodies which can then be morphed to alter different features.

Based at the heart of the beautiful historic city of Lincoln, you will join a friendly and thriving department with an outstanding reputation for student experience and rising reputation for excellence in research. The most recent Research Excellence Framework judged 90% of our research to be of international significance, with much of our work having outstanding levels of real world impact. We strongly value the development of our staff and support their progression by provision of mentoring support. The University supports the progress and advancement of women in science and the School of Psychology was recently awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze award.

The School of Psychology recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and proactively works to make our School an inclusive environment. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are currently underrepresented at this level.
