The Department of Education at The University of York (UK) is proud to be recognised as one of the leading Education Departments in the country, and in the last three years has developed a research and undergraduate teaching focus on Psychology in Education, with development of postgraduate programmes in Psychology in Education currently underway. This post provides an exciting opportunity for you to undertake excellent research in any field of psychology that has the potential to be applied to educational contexts, and to teach in associated teaching programmes in psychology and education.

This post is suitable for an early-to-mid-career researcher who is establishing, or has established, a track record of high quality publications in peer-reviewed journals and who is also committed to excellence in teaching. (Note. ‘Lecturer’ in the UK is roughly equivalent to ‘Assistant Professor’ in North America.)  You will play a full part in the research, teaching, supervision and administration of the Department, and will join a collegial and supportive group of staff in the Psychology in Education Research Centre.

You will carry out research in any area of psychology with application to educational contexts, supervise postgraduate students, and teach in the BPS-accredited Psychology in Education BSc programme. The new Lecturer will be a member of the Psychology in Education Research Centre (PERC)

You will have a PhD (or be near completion) in the field of psychology or educational psychology or a related field.

The post is full time and will commence on 1 September 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Robert Klassen, or +44 (0)1904 324396
