Contract: Full time/Fixed Term for 12 months (maternity cover)
We have two full time/12 month maternity cover opportunities one starting in June 2022 and one starting in October 2022.
The Department of Psychology at Glasgow Caledonian University is a dynamic and vibrant academic community with a strong track record of applied psychology provision that includes innovative teaching and learning, scholarly activity, research, practice and knowledge transfer activities. We are seeking to appoint two fixed-term (maternity cover) Lecturers in Applied Psychology who will contribute to the academic vibrancy of the Department.
Lecturers are expected to inspire learning and contribute to the enhancement of the student experience across the range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. These include the BPS accredited BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology, MSc Forensic Psychology and three BPS accredited/HCPC approved Doctorates in Counselling Psychology, Health Psychology and Sport & Exercise Psychology. We anticipate that the majority of learning, teaching and assessment activities will take place on GCU’s Glasgow Campus.
Thus, applicants should hold a doctoral qualification in psychology and be eligible for Chartership with the British Psychological Society. We recognise that applicants moving into higher education from other context (e.g., practice) may have limited direct experience of the requirements for the post. In such instances they must outline their experience, skills and achievements in such a way as to demonstrate they meet, or have the potential to meet, the essential criteria.
Successful candidates will contribute to the delivery of innovative learning, teaching and assessment across the portfolio. Thus, we are seeking to appoint inventive individuals with a forward thinking vision for applied psychology. For example, innovation in the practice of applied psychology, the open science and big data agendas in research, and/or learning technologies to support graduates in post-COVID-19 employment.
Prior experience of supporting psychology student learning, teaching and assessment in higher education and/or practice settings is essential. The Department of Psychology promotes innovation in learning and teaching and, therefore, we are keen to appoint an individual with experience of e-learning and on-line environments. A higher education teaching qualification and/or Fellow status with AdvanceHE is desirable. The post holder will also be expected to contribute to ensuring curricula are current and compliant with internal and external regulatory frameworks.
Successful candidates will also engage in high quality research, scholarly and/or enterprise activities that complement the work of the team, and to help develop the profile of the Department in the UK and internationally. This will require flexibility and the ability to work independently, while also contributing in a positive way to the various programme and scholarly activity teams in the Department, School and University.
