Teaching Fellow in Psychology
Salary: £32,004 to £38,183 per annum (Grade 8)

The School of Life and Health Sciences is an established provider of high quality learning and teaching.   Psychology students reported an overall satisfaction of 92% in the 2016 National Students Survey.  Members of the Psychology Department are members of either the Applied Health Research Group (AHRG) or the Basic and Applied Neurosciences Group (BANG). 

Led by an ambitious research and development strategy, the School of Life and Health Sciences is seeking to appoint four new colleagues who will contribute to the research and teaching profile in Psychology at Aston University.  One appointment will be of a Teaching Fellow who will make a significant contribution to teaching on the Psychology programmes.

Candidates for the Teaching Fellowship may be in the early stages of their academic career but must be able to demonstrate aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching and scholarship. If a suitable teaching qualification is not already held, the successful candidate will be expected to obtain this. They will not be expected to maintain a strong research profile but must be willing to maintain sufficient breadth or depth of specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes. Experience of, or aptitude for, teaching in one of the following areas of psychology would be advantageous: Clinical/Abnormal; Social; Developmental (including Ageing); Auditory and/or Visual Perception.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate the necessary teamwork skills to foster collaboration with existing colleagues and to build links both within the University and externally; the attitude and ability to engage in continuous professional development.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the Director of Studies, Dr Dan Shepperd (0121-204 4210; email: d.shepperd@aston.ac.uk) or the Head of Psychology, Professor Helen Pattison (0121-204 4073; email: h.m.pattison@aston.ac.uk) for informal discussion about the post before applying.
