Following successful recruitment of nine new lecturers in Psychology this academic year, we are pleased to be able to offer six further posts, including one for an Associate Professor in Forensic Psychology.

The School of Human Sciences recently re-located to the fantastic and newly refurbished Dreadnought building on the World Heritage site at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. This move, along with the creation of new laboratory facilities, is part of significant investment in the School and part of a long-term plan to build internationally leading research and teaching in the Faculty. As part of this investment we are looking to appoint a dynamic and engaged colleague to help grow and develop the School.

We are, in particular, developing our portfolio of accredited postgraduate taught programmes, including a Masters degree in Forensic Psychology. This will consolidate and extend our existing provision in, for example, our accredited BSc H Psychology (Forensic Psychology) programme. You will lead the development and introduction of this exciting new programme through the support of a new Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology that is also currently being recruited and the wider Psychology Academic Portfolio team.

You will be joining a School and Faculty that is building a strong interdisciplinary and cross-professional approach to solving the grand challenges facing society. We are looking for colleagues who will have a commitment to maintaining and building the University’s excellence in teaching and learning, and who are doing research that has the potential for significant long-term academic and societal impact. As a Faculty we also welcome candidates whose research work will resonate with one or more new interdisciplinary Faculty Research Centres within the newly formed Institute for Lifecourse Development:

  • Centre for Chronic Disease and Ageing
  • Centre for Inequalities 
  • Centre for Mental Health 
  • Centre for Professional Workforce Development
  • Centre for Thinking and Learning
  • Centre for Vulnerable Children and Families

The School has an active and growing research base. Psychology performed well in REF2014. Our current performance and continued investment in the discipline will lead to even better performance in REF2021 and beyond. The University is currently rated TEF silver, reflecting our excellent teaching and learning, and we have realistic aspirations to achieve a TEF rating of ‘gold’ in any forthcoming subject TEF.

We are looking to recruit an individual with a strong track record of scholarly outputs and professional activities who, at the same time, is able to demonstrate commitment to teaching excellence and innovation as well as appropriate experience of teaching in the HE sector for this level. Candidates would be expected to have a PhD.

We aim to be an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community. 

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Russell Luyt (Head of School) on r.luyt@gre.ac.uk

Should you have any queries please contact the HR Recruitment Team on HR-Recruitment@gre.ac.uk

We are looking for people who can help us deliver our mission of transforming lives through inspired teaching and research, through our values.
