We have created a new opportunity for a health psychologist with an established or emerging national/international profile.

Your contribution across research and research-led teaching will build on Surrey’s distinctive, world-leading, basic and applied psychological research. This forms part of our School strategy to provide research-led teaching and to develop cross-discipline research that releases the life-long potential of the human brain; addresses inequalities in life course health and wellbeing; embraces changing societies, environments and communities; intervenes to support vital, healthy and creative lives; creates innovative assessment analysis and interventions; influences policy and practice; and educates the professionals of the future.
