The Department of Psychology at Nottingham Trent University

The Psychology Department at Nottingham Trent University is seeking an additional Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in the fields of Counselling and Psychological Therapies 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.

Mental Health and Well-being Psychology at NTU

We have a strong commitment to wellbeing and mental health at all levels of our provision. On our undergraduate programme we have a mental health pathway for students who want to focus on this area. The third year of this course has a number of specialist mental health options which always attract a lot of students. We have successful and popular MSc courses in Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health, Forensic Mental Health and Psychology in Clinical Practice. We employ practitioners and academics to deliver these courses and we place a high value on practice-based teaching. We welcome applications from practitioners who are looking towards a career in HE while still maintaining their links with practice.

We are planning to start a Psychology with Counselling undergraduate degree in September 2020 with a view to developing MSc programmes soon after. We want to add experienced counsellors and psychotherapists to our faculty of staff to broaden the range of courses we can offer and to strengthen our work in psychological wellbeing and mental health. We want to widen the range of options available for students and to enhance their career opportunities.


Applicants will be qualified to at least Master’s level.  A good honours degree in Psychology or a related field is essential. You should be an enthusiastic educator with excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a commitment to supporting students' development at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Mentoring and support for personal and professional development will be provided to appointees appropriate to their level of experience.  We expect you to be registered and/or accredited with a recognised counselling/psychotherapy/counselling psychology or related professional body (e.g. BPS, BACP, UKCP). It would be ideal if you hold a PhD or Professional Doctorate (or are working towards this).

Closing Date: 28 February 2020
