The School of Health Sciences is looking to appoint two post-doctoral research and teaching associates in Psychology. The posts are tenable immediately for a fixed-term period of three years.

These posts offer an excellent opportunity for early career psychology academics interested in developing their research track record and gaining teaching experience as a stepping stone to future Lectureship or Fellowship applications. Successful candidates will split their time equally between conducting research and supporting the delivery of the BSc Psychology degree (

The research component will be conducted in collaboration with an established academic within PMH or PCHN, who will provide line management, mentoring and relevant research expertise. The project will be on a topic of mutual interest but the post-holder will be expected to lead on the project and have overall responsibility for it. A list of relevant topics and research collaborators is available at: Applicants should indicate which topic and collaborator they are hoping to work with in their covering letter. Successful candidates will join their mentor’s Division and research group.

The teaching component will include supporting (and, where appropriate, leading) the delivery of lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical classes and/or research labs, supervising undergraduate research projects, marking assessments, academic advising, providing constructive feedback to students and administration as appropriate. The specific responsibilities of the person(s) appointed will be agreed in consultation with the teaching team and will reflect our team-teaching philosophy.

Interviews for this post will take place approximately three to four weeks after the closing date.
