The School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Psychology to add to our existing strengths in teaching, research, and professional practice. We are an expanding department within a university that has established a reputation as one of the most dynamic and fastest growing in the UK, and was recently named as the Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.

Following recent expansions, the University of Lincoln has positioned itself as a major provider of applied psychology healthcare training courses in the East Midlands. Through providing high-quality mental health training and research, and by supporting the NHS to develop a highly skilled mental health workforce, the School of Psychology is making a significant contribution to both local mental health services and to the well-being of the local community and is placed at the centre of mental health developments in the area.

The School of Psychology has a purpose built building shared with the School of Health and Social Care with an extensive range of well equipped dedicated research equipment including EEG, TMS, Eye tracking (Tobii, Eyelink, DPI, Ober and VSG), Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound imaging and a 3D body and face scanner.  There are also specific labs dedicated to Psychobiology, Sleep and Baby research and resources to support comparative / animal based research in the field. 

Applicants will have a PhD or professional doctorate in Psychology (or equivalent) or be close to completion. Applicants should additionally be enthusiastic teachers, with strong communication and interpersonal skills and a commitment to student development and support. The School of Psychology has an established mentoring scheme, and appropriate teaching and research mentoring will be provided to appointees. 

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and post-graduate teaching within the school, including supervision of student research projects. Applicants with experience of well-being or mental health research in educational or developmental contexts would be particularly welcome. 

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. The University supports the progress and advancement of women in science and the School was recently awarded an Athena SWAN Silver 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.
