The Department of Psychology at Nottingham Trent University
The Psychology Department at Nottingham Trent University is seeking additional lecturers in psychology to further strengthen our research and to meet the demands of new course provision and increased student numbers in our undergraduate, MSc and doctoral programmes. We welcome applications from all areas of psychology and we particularly welcome applications that can contribute to our ambition to enhance the diversity and critical awareness of our curricula.

Psychology at NTU
We are the largest provider of full-time undergraduate psychology courses in the UK. We aim to integrate all levels of our teaching as much as possible and to also draw on our research activity to inform our sessions with students.

We have four research clusters which house 12 active research groups. We have particular expertise in gambling, driving, sleep, bullying and forensic psychology. We support research at all levels and although we are currently focused on the REF we recognize that this is not the only measure of research quality and value. We support staff to develop a research plan that fits within the wide research activity of the Department.

The Department
You will be joining a very large, lively, diverse, collegiate and ambitious group with an excellent reputation for its theoretically informed impactful and applied research and its teaching provision at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Ongoing strategic investment in terms of staffing numbers, the continuing professional development of staff, research support, laboratory facilities and funded PhD students continues to allow us to develop further.

Applicants will have a PhD or professional doctorate in Psychology (or equivalent). You should be an enthusiastic teacher with excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a commitment to supporting students' development at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Mentoring and support for development in both teaching and research will be provided to appointees appropriate to their level of experience.

If you are in the early stages of an academic career and are considering joining NTU, then our Early Career Academic Development Programme could be just right for you.

If you are considering joining NTU as a Senior Lecturer you will benefit from our Senior Lecturer Career Framework , which recognises and rewards you based on your performance, contribution and achievement, and offers the opportunity of faster salary progression compared to the industry average.

Interview Date: w/b 10th August 2020 (to be confirmed).
