Regent’s DPsych Counselling Psychology programme is a professional doctorate in counselling psychology validated by The Open University, with on-going approval from the Health and Care Professions Council and on-going accreditation with the British Psychological Society.

We are currently recruiting a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer to join our friendly and supportive programme team. The post-holder will act as a doctoral research supervisor, an internal examiner for viva examinations, and as a research ethics panel member. The post does not currently include teaching but some teaching and assessment work may be offered in the future.

Even under normal circumstances, much of the programme’s research provision is delivered remotely (e.g., emails, reviews of work). Currently all research supervision, examining and ethics activities are being conducted online; flexibility with respect to working arrangements in these areas is likely to continue to some extent and can be discussed.

This post would suit those wishing to gain research and supervision experience in a counselling psychology training and level 8 professional doctorate setting. For all staff joining the DPsych, further opportunities may present themselves in the future across Regent’s excellent postgraduate provision in psychology, psychotherapy and/or innovative interdisciplinary areas.

Candidates will hold a doctoral degree in ideally counselling psychology, chartered status with the British Psychological Society and HCPC registration. Candidates with a doctoral qualification and/or demonstrable track record of research in a clinical psychology or psychotherapeutic field will be also considered. A sound knowledge of qualitative research methodologies is essential, as is understanding the nature of work in multicultural environments, and knowledge of the professional, statutory and academic frameworks governing counselling psychology and its training.  Experience of postgraduate teaching and assessment, and of postgraduate and/or doctoral research supervision (including to completion) is desirable. Publications in peer-reviewed journals and Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy would be beneficial. Assistant Professor candidates will have held leadership roles in higher education and/or practice settings.

We encourage interested candidates to review all the programme’s current vacancies. Visiting posts are also available. Candidates are encouraged to consult the DPsych pages on to learn more about the programme.
