Our lively and productive department brings together staff with interests in educational psychological and neuro-scientific approaches to learning, development and teaching from early childhood to adulthood and encompassing special and inclusive education. Our profile is distinctive, offering the largest coherent group of psychologists in the UK working in education, child and adolescent development.

You will also further develop and direct our existing Masters degree: International Leadership in Inclusive Education (MAILIE), a programme with the clear potential for worldwide reach and impact on policy and practice. Congruent with this, you will be a valuable addition to our world-class research and knowledge exchange culture. This is a very exciting post for the right candidate.
