About the role 

Come and join our brilliant and friendly team! As part of the growth and development of our Clinical Psychology provision, we are looking for three highly motivated lecturers to join us in delivering our postgraduate programme, and to contribute to our high quality research profile. The post holders will become part of a friendly, hard-working and dedicated team of academics, who deliver the Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

The Staffordshire University Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology is delivered in partnership with local clinical psychologists in Shropshire and Staffordshire.  The over-arching framework for the programme is the impact of Society and Context on psychological well-being and there is an emphasis on prevention, early intervention, innovative practice, and the importance of delivering psychological services to people who are ‘hard to reach’.  Our service user and carer group has an important role in contributing to and influencing on the programme.

Applications are sought from enthusiastic, team-orientated and flexible individuals.  The post holders will contribute primarily to the academic curriculum as Academic Tutor, however there is an expectation of involvement with all areas of the programme, to ensure good synchronisation between the three major strands of training – academic, clinical and research.  We are particularly interested in hearing from applicants with a strong research background and experience.  We are especially keen on recruiting individuals with clinical backgrounds in adult mental health, learning disabilities and older adults.   Additional training in CBT, systemic therapies or third wave therapies would also be beneficial.

Successful applicants will have a clinical psychology qualification, be registered with the Health and Care Professions’ Council and have up-to-date knowledge of clinical psychology practice. Applicants should have substantial experience of working post-qualification (minimum of two years) and have an enthusiasm for training.  Previous experience of working on a clinical psychology training programme and a track record of publications would be advantageous. 

We benefit from superb purpose-built facilities in a £30 million Science Centre, and we work across the region with a number of organisations and agencies.  Putting the students first is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to providing an excellent student experience through exciting and innovative programmes and research and practice informed teaching at every level.

Programme staff are employed by Staffordshire University and are responsible to the Course Lead.
