Advert Text

This is an exciting time to join Coventry University and the School of Psychological, Social and Behavioural Sciences. With a University Gold TEF rating, ranking 2nd in the UK for Teaching Excellence, and outstanding NSS scores in our courses we have demonstrable excellence in student experience. As a global University, our contribution to teaching excellence extends beyond our UK campuses, and the School of Psychological, Social and Behavioural Sciences works with partner organisations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and South-East Asia. Additionally, we offer global experience opportunities through teaching and research-related activities to both staff and students, and we have a strong commitment to the internationalisation of our curriculum.

We are now looking to appoint an Assistant Lecturer in Psychology to join our highly regarded team of academics delivering on a range of online, and on campus psychology courses. As these are teaching-focussed roles we are particularly interested in receiving applications from applicants with experience of delivering teaching and/or professional training, setting and marking assessments and supporting students within higher education settings. Your teaching approach will be flexible, student-centred and research informed. As the role will also require you to develop and maintain productive relationships with placement providers, employers and other stakeholders, you will need a high level of interpersonal skills, and personal effectiveness to promote a high-quality experience for all our stakeholders. You will have a strong commitment to continuing professional development and to inter-professional and international perspectives. 

The School is recognised for the high quality of its provision of applied and professional courses. This includes a broad portfolio of on-campus, off-campus, blended and distance learning courses both discipline and profession specific. The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences has strong partnerships with employers and placement providers from a range of sectors including Local Authority Social Services, Strategic Health Authorities, NHS Trusts, education, and the independent, voluntary and the private sectors.  Research activity is an integral part of the Faculty's business and you will be encouraged to develop your research interests.

Coventry University offers academic support and professional development support and provides the opportunity for staff without a recognised teaching qualification to undertake the PGCert.
