You must be able to demonstrate a strong teaching profile and a proven commitment to the student experience, including supporting students’ wellbeing. A PhD (or near completion) or an equivalent psychology (e..g., DClinPsy) qualification is highly desirable, as is energy, enthusiasm, and a commitment to play a full and active role in the life of the School of Law and Criminology.
