We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
Newcastle University is seeking to appoint a talented and enthusiastic Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology to join an expanding team of academic and practitioner forensic psychology staff in the School of Psychology. This is an exciting time to be joining the School as we build on our highly successful forensic psychology pathways. We also have a Forensic Psychology Research Group (FPRG) which all forensic staff are members of and contribute to.
You will participate fully in the School's range of teaching and scholarship activities. The School of Psychology currently offers an established portfolio of British Psychological Society accredited undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including an accredited MSc in Forensic Psychology. Qualified to PhD level (or Professional Doctorate) and ideally (but not essential) a BPS Chartered/HCPC registered Forensic Psychologist, the successful candidate must have experience of teaching and supervising under-, and post-graduate students and be able to contribute specialist knowledge relevant to forensic psychology/general psychology that complements the current teaching and research interests of the School. We already have expertise in investigative interviewing and are looking to diversify our expertise in other forensic-relevant areas. You must be ambitious and possess excellent communication (both written and oral), interpersonal and organisational skills.
The University has developed an Academic Job Summary Guidance document which summarises the range of activities that academic staff may be expected to perform.
