In REF 2021 the Department of Psychology was ranked at 15th in the UK for research power. The overall submission to unit of assessment 4 was 76% 3/4*, with 95% of the staff base included in the submission. As a researcher within the Department of Psychology, you would have access to a brand new research space hosting a wide range of research resources, including: 3DMD photogrammetry body scanner, 14-camera Vicon motion capture suite, SR Research and Tobii eye tracking equipment, NIRS, transcranial magnetic stimulation, an immersive virtual reality suite, a two-bedroom sleep laboratory, psychophysiologic assessment tools (e.g. polysomnography, GSR, EEG, EMG), and wet labs for taking human samples. Our popular Psychology courses cater to a vibrant student community of over 1000 undergraduate students and nearly 200 postgraduate students, across two undergraduate and six postgraduate programmes, plus a rapidly growing distance learning provision. The Department actively works with all academic staff to ensure teaching activity does not come at the expense of research time, and promotes engagement with sabbaticals to facilitate the development of grant submissions and collaborative projects. The department of Psychology holds an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in recognition of its organisational and cultural practices promoting gender equality.
We are seeking a research active, chartered Forensic Psychologist to strengthen our existing team. You will contribute to the new Forensic Psychology research group to deliver high quality impactful research outputs and generate new links with practitioners in the field to strengthen the research-practitioner relationship. You will contribute to the development and delivery of a BPS accredited MSc in Forensic Psychology, supervision of undergraduate projects, postgraduate theses and PhD students, and to the delivery of undergraduate Forensic pathway modules. Continuation of existing practice will be encouraged where possible and fractional contracts to facilitate this will be considered favourably.
