Clinical Academic or Senior Clinical Academic Tutor/s (Honorary Lecturer or Senior Lecturer - A4C - 8a/8b)

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

The South Wales Doctoral Training Programme in Clinical Psychology: Clinical Academic or Senior Clinical Academic Tutor/s (Honorary Lecturer or Senior Lecturer – A4C – 8a/8b)

The South Wales Doctoral Training Programme in Clinical Psychology is seeking to appoint two new members of the clinical academic training team. There will be one permanent post and one 12 months fixed term post. Both posts may be available at A4C grade 8a or 8b depending on experience. Both posts will be part-time at 0.6 WTE (although there may be some flexibility available), and if required we would assist a successful candidate wishing to work full-time to find additional sessions in one of our collaborating NHS Health Boards.   

Both post/s involve management of trainee clinical psychologists, provision of research supervision, and supporting delivery of teaching. The posts are open to clinical psychologists with backgrounds in any specialism and we are particularly keen to attract candidates with expertise in working with older adults, intellectual disabilities, and/or with neuropsychology expertise or interest. We are keen to attract candidates with interest in developing a research portfolio (8a) or with demonstratable research expertise (8b). In addition the 8b post would lead on one aspect of the programmes infrastructure and be likely to chair one of the programmes subcommittees. For both posts, there will be opportunities to support specific areas of training in line with the candidate’s interests and the needs of the programme which might include support for improving development of cultural competency, reflective practice, and maintenance of secondary accreditations. As such you should have a Clinical Psychology Doctorate or equivalent, and be HCPC registered as a Practitioner Psychologist. The programme would welcome applicants from clinical psychologists with additional accreditation from a recognised therapeutic professional body (e.g. BABCP, AFT).

The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology is run in partnership between Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (CAVUHB) and Cardiff University and the programme is based in the School of Psychology which has an established international research record It collaborates with supervisors to provide placements across mid, west, and south Wales and they regularly   contribute to teaching and research. 

CAVUHB operates a comprehensive equal opportunities policy and seeks to encourage applications from the widest possible field, including people with disabilities and family commitments. The ability to speak Welsh is desirable; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

If you would like to discuss this post informally prior to applying, please contact the Programme Director, Professor Andrew Thompson (, or Professor John Fox, Associate Programme Director (, or Dr Louise Waddington, Therapies Director (
