We have an exciting opening for a Lecturer to join the Clinical Psychology Research Team under the leadership of Dr Paul Hanna. The current team are a welcoming, innovative and cohesive group with a wide variety of research interests and expertise in training. The PsychD Programme in Clinical Psychology is based in the School of Psychology of the University of Surrey which has an outstanding reputation for applied psychology training and research.

We seek to appoint an emerging leader in Clinical Psychology/mental health research who will join a School and Faculty with research ambition and a drive to have real impact in the world. We welcome applications from people working in all discipline areas of Clinical Psychology, Health Psychology, Community Psychology and mental health/distress more generally. We are particularly interested in people whose work focuses on developing creative and novel research methodologies which are underpinned by a comprehensive understanding of theory.

Within the Clinical Psychology Team at the University of Surrey we have recently launched three research groups through which the majority of our research activity is funnelled:

  • Applied Clinical and Health Psychology
  • Drugs, Alcohol and Addictive Behaviours
  • Social Justice and Inequalities in Mental Health

We would therefore be keen to hear from individuals that can strengthen one or more of these new research groups as part of our developing national reputation.

You will be joining a vibrant Department with an active research culture and a clear remit to develop and extend the reach of Clinical Psychological research. As a small department we are keen to appoint someone that works well as a member of a team, is passionate about helping develop the research capabilities of our Clinical Trainees and is motivated to supervise doctoral research projects to the best possible standard. We are looking for highly motivated people with a creative and collegiate approach to Psychology, and we welcome applicants working with a range of methods who are committed to research, supervision and teaching. All post-holders will hold a doctorate in psychology, or equivalent and contribute directly to research, teaching and learning and administration. In addition to salary, you will receive a generous annual leave entitlement, excellent development opportunities, and childcare assistance.
