The UOC is an innovative university that is rooted in Catalonia and open to the world. Its mission is to offer people lifelong learning to help them, and society, progress.

As part of the worldwide network of universities, and based on its Strategic Plan, the UOC works strategically to drive the creation of a global knowledge space and conduct cutting-edge research in the knowledge society.

The UOC has a unique, innovative and student-centred educational model. It provides quality education that can be customized to students' individual needs, enhancing their competitiveness and contributing to the progress of society.

The person selected will join the UOC's Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, in a full-time role as part of the psychology team.

Responsibilities:

UOC faculty members promote and direct distance learning in their fields of expertise. Particular attention must be given to the preparation of programmes of study, course contents and teaching materials, as well as the supervision and coordination of students' learning processes. Faculty members are also responsible for driving innovation, especially in terms of methods and techniques used in distance learning and research activities in their fields of expertise.

The person selected will join the UOC's Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences in a full-time role, specializing in the field of personality, psychological assessment and treatment.

The Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences is currently working on consolidating the quality of teaching on its existing programmes, and on developing new proposals for postgraduate studies. We are looking for candidates who will contribute to these objectives, specifically in the field of personality, assessment and psychological treatment. Candidates should have experience of university-level teaching in the field of clinical and general psychology.

Training and professional healthcare experience applying an integrative approach and an open attitude towards different theoretical positionings within psychology will be valued highly.

The contract will be permanent and full-time. The successful candidate should be available to start as soon as the recruitment process is completed.
