We are very pleased to announce the availability of two lectureships on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.  We are able to offer candidates the opportunity to work within the academic, research or clinical streams of the Course, with opportunities for supervising doctoral and masters level research in a clinical area of their choice.   Those appointed will have the opportunity to develop their interests in applied areas of clinical psychology and have a role in organizing one aspect of the Course, for example, practice placements, research projects, or the curriculum and equality initiatives. 

It is a really exciting time for clinical psychology, with another substantial expansion of training, and the posts offer an opportunity to develop the Course in line with current and future NHS priorities. The Royal Holloway DClinPsy is a large well-respected training programme with an existing BABCP CBT pathway and a planned systemic pathway. The post-holders will join an innovative and supportive team of 18 academic staff with a range of expertise across child, adult, learning disability, health, older-adult and neuropsychology specialities. Students’ clinical experience spans North Thames services and working effectively with a range of NHS Trusts will be essential. Staff and student research is well supported within a vibrant Psychology Department, which is ranked joint 3rd in the UK for research (REF 2021). Information about the Department’s existing research and teaching programmes can be found here:

We offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package with generous annual leave and staff development opportunities, including a higher education teaching qualification. The posts are offered as professional practice contracts with a clinical market supplement and applicants are required to be HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologists with a recognised qualification in clinical psychology. 

These permanent posts are offered part or full-time, and we would be happy to consider those wanting to work part-time (0.5 to 1.0 FTE). Ideally, we would appoint those with some clinical or research experience but we are open to considering newly qualified clinical psychology graduates.  BABCP or AFT accreditation would be an advantage.  As a range of course administrative roles are available candidates should indicate on their application (i) their preference for research, academic or clinical tutor role (ii) what number of days they are applying for ranging from 0.5-1.0wte.

The posts are based in Egham, where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within easy commuting distance from London. Hybrid working options are available. 

Informal enquiries regarding these posts can be directed to the DClinPsy Course Director, Professor Helen Pote or DClinPsy Deputy Course Director, Dr Kate Theodore
