The University of Surrey is one of the UK’s leading public research universities. Join 2,500 staff and 17,000 students in an inspiring and diverse environment to make a positive impact through free-thinking and hard work.

Our Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences comprises four schools, working together under a ‘one health’ vision, embracing the broader themes of healthy aging and supporting long-term conditions, understanding people’s relationships with social and physical environments, urban living, sustainability and people-focussed AI.

Our School of Psychology, which has recently ranked top 10 in England in the Times Good University Guide, is committed to basic and applied research for the benefit of society through our enterprising and forward-thinking spirit as well as research-led teaching. Our strong connections with the British Psychological Society, business and NHS enrich the curriculum and make a significant contribution to the School’s research and the high rates of employment for Surrey’s Psychology graduates.

This post presents an opportunity for exceptional scholars with a commitment to fostering a research and learning community that is as collegial and inclusive as it is innovative. The key responsibilities will be to work with integrity to continue to develop our strategy to increase grant submission and capture, mentor junior academic colleagues to achieve recognition of world leading research activity, and contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes.

You will have a track record of high-quality research in an area of Psychology that complements our existing specialisms enabling enhanced broad spectrum psychology research, along with the academic standing and strategic vision to take forward new directions for our discipline. Your application will demonstrate the ability to work at the interface between applied and theoretical approaches in psychology and to strategically link with one or more of the existing research areas in the School.

In support of your specific research field, this position comes with a 3-year fully funded PhD studentship to include fees with stipend at standard rate.

We offer a generous pension, relocation assistance, flexible working options including job share and blended home/campus working locations (dependent on work duties), access to world-class leisure facilities on campus, a range of travel schemes and supportive family friendly benefits including an excellent on-site nursery.

The University of Surrey is committed to providing an inclusive environment that offers equal opportunities for all. We value everyone in our community and are seeking to increase the diversity. Therefore, we particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups, such as people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and people with disabilities.

With your application, please attach a full CV along with a cover letter containing details of your five-year research plan. We encourage applications from non UK nationals.
