The School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Counselling/Psychological Therapies who will complement our existing strengths in teaching, research, and professional practice.

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. We are looking to enhance our applied programme team on delivering:

  • the PGDip/MSc Counselling (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)
  • the BSc (Hons) Psychology with Mental Health

The successful candidate will contribute to the above programme(s) and may contribute to additional undergraduate and post-graduate teaching within the school, including supervision of student research projects. We welcome applications from practitioners who wish to balance a career in HE with continuing applied practice. Applicants must be registered counsellors with the BACP (though full membership is acceptable), with experience working with adults, and ideally children and young people.

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. Part time applications will be considered. 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.
