This will provide an opportunity to build a research portfolio that complements current research activity in the school. Alternatively, applicants with a growing national/international research track record, evidenced by publications/grant applications, can apply to work on a balanced pathway (see Person Specification for details). PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in Psychology is also required.

Our School is one of the largest providers of postgraduate research training in the UK, offering a range of MSc programmes (Clinical, Health, Research Methods), research doctorates (PhD), Doctoral Programmes in Clinical Psychology (DClin) and Educational Psychology (DEdPsy), and training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). 

We enjoy long-standing collaborations with University research groups in Medicine (Psychiatry), Biological Sciences (Neuroscience), Health Sciences and Education. The Southampton Neuroscience Group and Institute for Life Sciences support further cross-disciplinary collaboration. Our strategic partnerships with NHS Trusts, schools, Government, charities and industry deliver world leading impact (REF2014) and attract significant grant income from all major research funders.
