Following the successful recruitment of many new lecturers in Psychology this academic year, we are pleased to be able to offer an additional post for a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology.
The School of Human Sciences is based within the fantastic and newly refurbished Dreadnought building on the World Heritage site at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. These facilities, including bespoke new laboratories, are 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 will be developing our portfolio of accredited postgraduate taught programmes, including consolidating the success of our existing master’s degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology. This complements and extends our existing provision in, for example, our accredited BSc H Business Psychology programme.
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 Institute for Lifecourse Development:
- Centre for Chronic Disease and Ageing
- Centre for Exercise, Activity and Rehabilitation
- 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’.
We are looking to recruit individuals with a strong and developing track record of research who, at the same time, can demonstrate commitment to teaching excellence and innovation. Candidates would be expected to have a PhD and a developing profile of international-quality publications, together with appropriate experience of teaching in the HE sector for this level.
Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Russell Luyt (Head of School); email: email@example.com and telephone: 020 8331 8867.
We are looking for people who can help us deliver our mission of transforming lives through inspired teaching and research, through our values.
