The Department of Law and Criminology is part of the School of Law and Social Sciences, alongside the Departments of Economics and Politics, International Relations and Philosophy. We are forward thinking, multidisciplinary and research active. We offer undergraduate programmes in Law, Criminology & Psychology, Criminology & Sociology and Social Science, together with Masters programmes in Forensic Psychology, Consumption, Culture & Marketing, Social Work, and Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism Studies. We are also home to an energetic postgraduate research student community.

We seek an outstanding HCPC Registered Forensic Psychologist to join our dynamic and multidisciplinary team. This position will be professional practice focussed which means that you will use your practice experience to inform teaching of undergraduates and postgraduates and research, develop networks with external organisations, engage in professional practice, develop research and demonstrate leadership.

The position will require the teaching of undergraduate joint honours Criminology and Psychology and MSc Forensic Psychology students and the supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate projects.  We are also keen to develop our teaching portfolio and the ability to contribute to both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including the supervision of doctoral students, and the development of specialist options to reflect specific areas of expertise is sought. Applicants should possess the broad range of skills needed to teach effectively. We also expect academic leadership and an effective contribution to programme or department administration or projects improving the student experience.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing.

The post is available from September 2023 or soon thereafter and is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.

We offer a vibrant and supportive environment, in an internationally recognised and multidisciplinary academic group.
