Salary: £36,914 to £51,034 per annum
Contract Type: Permanent
Lecturer in Psychology (Mental Health or Clinical Health) at Queen's University Belfast
The School of Psychology is seeking to appoint a Lecturer to undertake research and teaching in the area of Mental Health or Clinical Health Psychology. The School runs a doctoral training programme in Clinical Psychology and, due to recent senior appointments, now has a very active research group encompassing mental health and clinical health psychology, with particular strengths in trauma, and chronic physical health conditions. Two prestigious professorial appointments, Professor Cherie Armour (psychological trauma and mental health) and Professor Kevin Vowles (chronic pain and clinical health psychology) position the School as a hub for globally excellent research in this field. Both Professors Armour and Vowles are internationally renowned in their areas of speciality and will take an active role in the mentorship and research capacity building of the newly appointed lecturer. The School has also recently launched a research centre that will encompass and support all of the research activity in this area, the Centre for Improving Health-Related Quality of Life (CIHRQOL), https://www.qub.ac.uk/schools/psy/Research/ResearchThemes/hce/cihrqol/
A new MSc in Clinical Health Psychology will begin in 2020-2021, and there is a planned expansion of intake on the Clinical Psychology doctoral training programme. The Lecturer will be joining a thriving research environment with excellent facilities, technical support, and senior research mentors. We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer who will complement existing research in Mental Health or Clinical Health Psychology. The post holder will provide research supervision to clinical doctorate trainees and contribute specialised undergraduate and/or MSc teaching. The post holder does not need to be a qualified Clinical or Health Psychologist, but must have expertise in an area that would enable them to supervise some research projects of our clinical doctorate trainees.
