Following successful recruitment of several new lecturers in Psychology this academic year, we are pleased to be able to offer a further one for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology.

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 a dynamic and engaged colleague to help grow and develop the School. In particular, we are looking for a motivated individual to make a significant contribution to our new Master’s degree in Forensic Psychology. This will consolidate and extend our existing provision in, for example, our accredited BSc H Psychology programme.

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 are looking for colleagues who will have a commitment to maintaining and building the University’s excellence in teaching and learning, and who are doing research that has the potential for significant long-term academic and societal impact. 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. Psychology performed well REF2021, particularly in the area of research environment. The University is currently rated TEF gold, reflecting our excellent teaching and learning. 

We are looking to recruit individuals with a strong and developing track record of research who, at the same time, can demonstrate commitment to teaching excellence and innovation.
