Featured Job, May 2016

Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology in the Department of Applied Psychology, Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Lalage Sanders, Head of Applied Psychology, tells me ‘We are definitely looking for a team player. We hold regular planning days where we meet up to review our progress and to agree our departmental objectives.’

Sanders says that to call this purely a teaching or lecturing job is to undersell it. ‘This is a new role and we’re looking for an HCPC registered practitioner who wants to get involved in teaching in our expanding forensic psychology portfolio. We encourage and support our practitioners to maintain their professional skills and registration.’

Work on the postgraduate diploma will involve travelling around the UK to supervise students where they work. The MSc, like the Department, is based at the Llandaff campus in one of the most attractive parts of the bustling city of Cardiff. ‘The MSc Forensic Psychology is focused on critical debate; the department and our students welcome someone with their own views who is prepared to advance new ideas.’ This is a taught programme, though dissertations are often based in applied settings.  

‘We’re a very enthusiastic, rapidly developing and research active department,’ Sanders continues. ‘Our postgraduate provision focuses on Forensic, Health and Research. Once someone has met the basic requirements there are no real restrictions on who applies. We’d love to talk to people who want to contribute actively to our future.’
