Dr Emily Buckley

  • Job title: Head Of Department - Psychology
  • Department: School of Life Sciences and Education


After doing my undergraduate psychology degree at the University of Lincoln, I completed the MSc in Health Psychology at Staffordshire in 2002. From September 2002 until January 2006 I worked at Staffordshire University as a Research Associate and part-time Lecturer in Health Psychology. In December 2005 I was the first person to complete the Professional Doctorate in Health Psychology here at Staffs, and soon after started a full-time lecturing position here within Psychology.

In 2004 I was involved in establishing a Post-Graduate sub-committee of the BPS Division of Health Psychology, of which I was Chair from 2004 until September 2006. I was then the Chair of the DHP Continuing Professional Development sub-committee, and member of the Division of Health Psychology Committee until September 2009. I was also a member of the BPS Board of Assessors in Health Psychology (2009-10).
