Current positions

Lecturer in Psychology


Dr Clare Edge is a Lecturer in Psychology at University of Salford. She previously taught at Manchester Metropolitan University (2017) and University of Salford (2013-2018) across a number of Psychology and Public Health related areas at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Her professional background prior to starting my academic journey (2006-2013) was within the charity and voluntary sector. Clare held a number of roles that primarily involved coordinating projects and campaigns on a national and regional basis. These range from mental ill health service evaluation projects to mentoring projects led by young people.

Clare holds a BSc Psychology, an MSc Community Psychology and a PhD, and is a Member of the British Psychological Society. Her doctoral research explored ageing in the workplace. This looked at health and wellbeing from a number of psychological and public health perspectives. Clare has a broad range of research interests, but the main topics I am interested in are anything related to Community, Health & Social Psychology.
