Following several years of robust growth, we are pleased to be able to offer one new position in Psychology, at the Associate Professor level.

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 dynamic and engaged colleagues to help grow and develop the School. 

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 welcome applications from individuals with an interest in any area of Psychology. This reflects our already strong coverage of core curriculum areas and clear research interest groups. 

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. We anticipate a strong performance in REF2021 particularly with regard to ‘research environment’. 

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.
