Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Professional Practice) in Attachment Studies,
Part time (0.8FTE)

Department of Psychology
Salary: £39,081 to £51,253 pa pro rata inclusive of London Weighting Allowance

Applications are invited for a part-time (0.8FTE), without-term Lectureship/Senior Lectureship (Professional Practice) in Attachment Studies. The Attachment Studies Programmes are based on Patricia Crittenden’s Dynamic Maturational Model (DMM) of attachment. Courses are delivered at MSc, Certificate and CPD level and we currently have 7 PhD students. The Department of Psychology at Roehampton is one of the largest postgraduate training departments in the country, and brings together world-leading research and teaching in all major areas of psychology, psychological therapies and the arts & play therapies.

The role will manage the day to day running of the programmes, teach one or more DMM assessment procedures, supervise PhD students and develop the profile of the programme internationally as well as contribute to other related programmes in the department. Applicants must be trained in DMM theory and assessments and be licensed trainers in one or more DMM assessment procedures (e.g. Infant CARE-Index, Preschool Assessment of Attachment; School Age Assessment or Adult Attachment Interview). Each procedure is taught once a year. The post is offered at 0.8FTE but we would consider making two appointments with a combination of FTE to the right applicants.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas.

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of southwest London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working.
We are proud of our achievements as a Post 1992 University and continue to build upon them.
