A capable and confident teacher, you will be skilled in module and programme leadership, adept at developing curricula and experienced in publishing in high quality, peer-reviewed research. You will also be a passionate advocate for Forensic Psychology, sharing our determination to operate at the forefront of this exciting and evolving discipline, and will be capable of communicating complex concepts to diverse audiences and securing their buy-in. Most importantly, you will be a true innovator, whose fresh and inspiring approaches will help us take our place as one of the leading global universities in the field of Psychology.
