Academic & Research
Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.
You would be joining NTU Psychology, the largest department in the University with over 170 academic staff, 30 research and support staff and 100 doctoral students. We have a reputation for excellence in its teaching, research and practice and want to develop further our impact in the University, the community and internationally. We currently have nearly 3000 undergraduate students and a further 300 post graduate taught students. We are nationally recognised for our outstanding student experience. We are innovative in our teaching and assessment with a strong focus on student experience. Our courses are built around a strong tutorial programme, which aims to provide a personalised experience for all our students.
At NTU Psychology we are committed to our internationally world leading applied research in forensic psychology which occurs primarily within our Sexual Offences, Crime and Misconduct Research Unit (SOCAMRU). Established in 2007, SOCAMRU’s primary aim is to conduct and facilitate applied forensic research in the area of sexual crime, with the unit sitting at the juxtaposition between the domain of prison, police and criminal justice practitioners and that of academia. We are seeking an exceptional academic to join us to lead the work of this unit.
As a member of NTU Psychology’s Professoriate the successful candidate will be an internationally recognised player in Forensic Psychology and will provide key leadership and mentorship to facilitate and catalyse the development of applied research and practice engaged in research in this area. As Head of SOCAMRU, they will act as a champion for all staff involved in the unit providing mentorship and support and will help sustain and enhance the sector leading work it conducts.
This position provides a unique opportunity for an accomplished academic passionate about research in offending and forensic psychology and will play a pivotal role in sustaining NTU Psychology’s record of excellence. The successful candidate will have a track record of outputs and income generation commensurate with the role of a Professor and will be highly regarded within both professional and policy circles.
Interview Date: Stage 1 discussions are scheduled for Tuesday February 21st, 2023. Successful candidates will be invited for a further interview chaired by a member of the University Executive Team.
