Professor of Psychology as Applied to Medicine

Applications are invited for the Chair of Psychology as Applied to Medicine at King’s College London. In 2009 King’s College London became part of King’s Health Partners (KHP) with three of London's most successful NHS Foundation Trusts - Guy's and St Thomas', King's College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts. King's Health Partners aims to integrate world-leading research, teaching and clinical services in clinical academic groups to deliver high quality physical and mental health care. The post holder has the opportunity to work with KHP to deliver its strategic aims through medical education, training, research excellence and leadership. Multidisciplinary research and collaborations across KHP will be encouraged. A world-class health or clinical heath psychologist is sought, who is interested in applying his or her work to a medical context and who will lead the health psychology section of the Institute of Psychiatry. You should have an established track-record of internationally recognised research in health psychology and its application to medicine. You should also have a demonstrable ability to develop and lead research teams, a broad understanding of applied health psychology and a keen interest in medical education from undergraduates, intercalated BSc students to postgraduates. There is an opportunity to input into a new Health Psychology MSc programme at KCL. The successful candidate will have a high quality publication record in the field of health psychology, and a record of successful research funding, postgraduate supervision, leadership skills and teamwork. Informal enquiries to Professors David M Clark (david.clark@kcl.ac.uk) and Elizabeth Kuipers (elizabeth.kuipers@kcl.ac.uk) are welcomed.
