Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Psychology and Mental Health

The Department of Psychology at Nottingham Trent University

The Psychology Department at Nottingham Trent University is seeking an additional lecturer in Mental Health to further strengthen our research and to meet the demands of new course provision and increased student numbers in our undergraduate programmes. We would particularly welcome applications from psychologists with clinical training, who are keen to join a group of clinical psychologists in the department working on exciting ways forward in the development of clinical psychology practice and research.

Mental Health at NTU

In the area of Mental Health, we have an MSc Psychology in Clinical Practice in which students are supported through experiential placements to develop a rounded and realistic understanding of the profession as well as undertaking applied research projects. In addition, we have further MScs in Psychology Wellbeing and Mental Health, and also in Forensic Mental Health. We have a mental health pathway in our undergraduate degree and we are looking to develop a Psychology with Mental Health combined honours degree.

Psychology at NTU

We are the largest provider of fulltime undergraduate psychology courses in the UK, attracting a large number of applications and hence students. Our most popular course is the single honours degree and to manage the numbers on that degree we are now segmenting it into pathways focused towards our MSc courses. We aim to integrate all levels of our teaching as much as possible and to also draw on our research activity to inform our sessions with students.

We have four research clusters which house 12 active research groups. We have particular expertise in gaming, driving, sleep, social identity, reading, offending and psychological methods. We support research at all levels and although we are currently focused on the REF we recognize that this is not the only measure of research quality and value. We support staff to develop a research plan that fits within the wide research activity of the Department.


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.

Closing Date: 28 February 2020

Interview Date: To be confirmed
