Department of Psychology


Coming up: Jobs Fair (14 May, 4.30-6.30pm, Pitt Building)

Want to find out more about what it is like to work at the University of Cambridge, or about our current opportunities?

You are warmly invited to attend our next Jobs Fair, which will give you the opportunity to speak to current staff about their experience of working at the University, and get information about the type of roles that you are interested in.


The Department organises occasional talks given by distinguished professors of psychology. 

Charity "Bring and Share"

Department members are encouraged to organise social events to help Charities Organisations. This is great to socialise and help others. See photos (members only)

Coffee break

From 11 am-1 pm - More information is available in the monthly Bulletin 

Every day, we have TWO hours of free hot drinks exclusively for staff and students from the Department of Psychology. The idea is to promote a break from work/study and to encourage socializing while enjoying a nice coffee break. 

Happy Hour

The Department organises a monthly Pay Day event to encourage interaction between all members of staff. It plays a part in making the Department the sociable, harmonious and interactive place it is today.  More information is available in the monthly Bulletin See photos (members only)


The University operates a number of contribution reward and progression schemes found here for different staff categories.
