Our school

The School of Psychological Sciences and Health comprises four subject areas; Counselling, Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy, and Sport and Physical Activity. We are seeking to appoint someone with an international track record in research leadership in Psychology, whose interests complement and extend the School’s existing research strengths and are aligned to its REF submission to UoA3 (Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy).

The post-holder will contribute towards the School’s Strategic Plan by:

  • Leading a programme of research that aligns with the research interests of the staff within the School, including opportunities for increasing our PGR population;
  • Leading and securing substantial grant funding;
  • Working with the current Head of School, Director and Deputy Director of Research to develop a strong programme of mentorship for junior academic staff;
  • Working with colleagues across the School to develop grant applications, research programmes and publications;
  • Promoting the School within the University and to external audiences;
  • Identifying and leading on opportunities for interaction with industry and relevant professional bodies, including impact, knowledge exchange and commercialisation of research.

The opportunity

We would love to hear from you if you have an internationally recognised research portfolio in this area, are publishing in leading international journals, are actively pursuing funding whilst building impactful collaborative links with industrial and business partners and if you have a passion for leading on teaching and learning.  In keeping with our commitment to equality and diversity, we encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly those who can support our Athena SWAN activity, which inspires the advancement and representation of women in higher education. 

You’ll be rewarded with:

  • A generous remuneration package, with notable additional financial and non-financial benefits including pension and (where appropriate) a contribution towards relocation costs;
  • Excellent start-up support; and
  • Regular career review, with the opportunity to receive additional remuneration in recognition of outstanding contribution.
