Applicants must provide proof of GBC and a research proposal at the time of applying. Applicants would be expected to have at least 1 year experience in a forensic psychology setting. Applicants are subject to interview. All offers are subject to Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance.
Our staff are experienced practitioners and are well regarded in the profession having held national leadership roles including Chair of the Division, Chair of the Training Committee and many others. Staff are Chartered and HCPC registered practitioner psychologists supported by REF entered psychologists within a department with long established forensic psychology links. They will bring this extensive experience as practitioners to their teaching which is applied, collegiate and supportive. Supervisors will engage with you in a positive working relationship and your needs will be well noted and addressed by your tutor at the earliest stage. A positive, supportive approach is nurtured at all times, as with the current delivery of the BSc and MSc in Forensic Psychology.
