The Psychology Department at Nottingham Trent University is seeking an additional lecturer in biological 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 individuals who can contribute to our on-going research exploring the physiological/biological underpinnings of activity, sleep, health and well-being, using methodologies based on EEG, biological assays of hormones and cytokines
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.
In the submission to REF2014 (Unit of Assessment A04,http://www.ref.ac.uk/) 60% of our research outputs were identified as internationally excellent or world leading and 100% of our research impact was recognised as internationally excellent with 73% described as world leading. Our commitment to teaching is shown by the collaboration of over 50 staff to create an introductory text for SAGE (2nd edition published in 2015, 3rd edition in press) and by our showing in the National Student Survey (NSS) where we have been in the top ten of UK Psychology departments for the last three years. 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 and to meet the ambitions of the University’s strategic plan across the full range of our activities.
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.
At NTU, we recognise that our greatest strengths lie in the energy, expertise, and experience that our colleagues bring. Thanks to our £421million investment in estates and equipment across our three campuses since 2003/4, we deliver an inspirational learning environment for both staff and students.
