The Department delivers a high-quality undergraduate programme in Sport and Exercise Science which is endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, and we consistently achieve outstanding student satisfaction and excellent employability at graduate and professional level through the delivery of high quality research-led teaching across the subject areas. Our teaching programme is consistently rated in the top 15 and we are ranked 7th for graduate prospects in the UK. We are currently experiencing a period of growth, with a particular emphasis on our postgraduate programmes. This year we launched our first taught MSc programme in Advanced Performance Science and in 2024 we will be launching a taught MSc in Sport Psychology.
For this position, the Department is seeking someone with a strong research track record in Sport Psychology. We welcome applicants from individuals with interests in any area of sport psychology although particularly welcome applicants with a focus on cognitive psychology/motor learning. Applicants should be in a position to contribute to future curriculum developments at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
The successful candidate would need a PhD Sport Psychology (or related subjects), BASES accreditation (specialising in Psychology) or BPS chartership (and ideally registered with HCPC) as well as a record of research outputs and dissemination in quality publications or other media, securing resources to underpin original research and evidence of involvement in effective postgraduate research student supervision. Experience of working in multidisciplinary teams is also essential.
The appointed postholder will be embedded into a vibrant and dynamic environment with the capacity to interact with other research groups across the Faculty of Science and Engineering. As all our courses are research-led and practice-driven, the successful applicant should be able to bring their background into their teaching to enhance our students’ experience. If the applicant does not have a recognised teaching qualification, then evidence is required of a commitment to work towards Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) or equivalent.
The level of appointment will be based on the successful candidates’ own knowledge, skills and experience against the Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Associate Professor position and criteria.
Please indicate clearly on your application for which level you are applying.
