We are a large and vibrant Psychology Department guided by our University’s founding principles of breaking new ground, of challenging existing expectations, and of making a meaningful difference in the world. To achieve these goals, we organise our research and our teaching under the broader theme of ‘Understanding Our Place In The World’. We approach our work within this novel framework across three areas of concentration: Thinking about the world, Interacting with the world, and Experiencing the world. This allows our staff to pursue their intellectual ambitions and to achieve research excellence, all while fostering an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach that utilises multiple methodologies.

We occupy purpose-built facilities including state-of-the-art EEG/ERP, eye-tracking, psycho-physiology and computerised testing labs. Academics also have access to the Centre for Brain Science, which includes TMS, tDCS, fNIRS, virtual reality, pain and human sexuality testing facilities. We are internationally known for excellence in research, having been ranked 13th in the UK in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, with 90% of our research rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. We also offer an excellent BPS-accredited education to our students, with undergraduate and post-graduate courses guided by the Department’s overarching ethos. We were recently ranked 21st in the UK for overall student satisfaction in Psychology. We are proud to hold an Athena SWAN Silver Award (2020) for our work on promoting gender equality.

Our department has seen significant growth over the past 5 years and we are now looking to appoint to the positions of Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader level to build on and complement our existing research and education strengths. We are looking for ambitious, collaborative individuals who will enhance our international reputation and further our mission of ‘Understanding Our Place In The World’.
