Salary:   £42,149 to £50,296
Closing Date:   Sunday 26 June 2022
Interview Date:   Monday 04 July 2022
Reference:  0365-22

The Doctoral Programme in Clinical Psychology, which is located in the Division of Health Research and Faculty of Health and Medicine, is seeking to appoint Lecturers in Clinical Psychology to join our innovative professional training team, within a high-quality research active department.

Due to a recent substantial expansion in training commissions provided by Health Education England, we are seeking to appoint new academic staff to help oversee the development of the next generation of NHS clinical psychologists. We are looking to appoint candidates whose skills and experiences will complement our existing expertise in clinical psychology and to further develop our research and teaching in this area.  We welcome candidates with research expertise in race and anti-racism and decolonising the curriculum.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate the potential to make a high-quality contribution to the future profile of clinical psychology and mental health research conducted across the programme and the research groups within the Division of Health Research.  

You will have a Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology or an equivalent such as a DPsych in Counselling Psychology or a PhD with appropriate experience in clinical psychology research.  You will also be able to deliver high quality and engaging teaching and should have particular experience in supervising postgraduate, ideally doctorate students. You should be able to demonstrate a commitment to professional training, and inclusive practices in relation to it.

Primary duties of the post will comprise the supervision of doctoral trainee research, supporting teaching and assessment activities on the programme and providing pastoral support to trainees. Professionally qualified appointees may also have the opportunity to engage in activities such as clinical interventions and supervision and evaluation of clinical practice as part of their overall workload. 

The Faculty provides an environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each employee, promoting a healthy work-life balance. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education.

These are ideally part-time posts - our preferred mode of appointment is two 0.50 fte posts, but other working options will be considered including full-time. We are open to discussing job share opportunities/part-time working and flexible working arrangements including working week and days/hours worked, flexible start and finish times or condensed hours. The posts are available for a start from August 2021.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Ian Smith (Research Director - i.smith@lancaster.ac.uk), Dr Anna Daiches (Clinical and Deputy Programme Director - a.daiches@lancaster.ac.uk) and Professor Bill Sellwood (Programme Director – b.sellwood@lancaster.ac.uk) on the DClinPsy programme.
