The School of Social Sciences encapsulates many of the academic areas that shape society. These include how we are governed (law), where we live (architecture, planning and geography), how economies and businesses function (business and management studies), the choices we make (psychology) and our politics and international relations, essentially anything that influences how people think and behave.
One of Scotland’s major centres for teaching and research, the School is aimed at addressing the major challenges arising in society and brings together academic experts from a broad range of disciplines to produce interdisciplinary research that makes an impact, transforming people’s lives around the world.
It has a strong academic culture and an environment that supports and encourages personal development in both teaching and scholarship and a formal mentoring system to help support less-experienced colleagues.
We are recruiting for an exceptional individual to join us as a Senior Lecturer (Teaching & Research) within our Psychology Discipline, to enhance teaching and research in Psychology within the School of Social Sciences.
We welcome applications from candidates whose research would complement and extend our existing research strengths in Social Inclusion and Health and Challenges in Human Interaction and Learning (https://www.dundee.ac.uk/psychology/research/).
We are also keen to build capacity in our MSc programmes in Developmental Psychology (https://www.dundee.ac.uk/study/pg/developmental-psychology/) and Psychology of Mental Health (https://www.dundee.ac.uk/study/pg/psychology-of-mental-health/).
This position is part of a strategic investment in Psychology, which has included two recent Lecturer appointments in addition to the present post (see also current vacancies for a Reader and a Lectureship).
Your priorities will include:
