Academic Knowledge


Work from home

Are you looking for a flexible career, the chance to be your own boss, and the opportunity to enhance your prospects using your knowledge and study skills? If so, Academic Knowledge is the place for you. We are looking for Psychology graduates, postgraduates and doctoral level researchers who have the ability to write to specific guidelines, work to defined deadlines, and respond to feedback swiftly and effectively.

Psychology jobs with Academic Knowledge can enhance your own career progression, by ensuring that you stay in touch with emergent developments in research and debate in your specialist area. All we need from you is a commitment to providing quality writing, and access to the latest research publications in the field. You should have experience in your field, and have achieved well in your own academic study.


We require all our researchers to have a recognised university degree to at least a 2:1 level. The reality is that most of our researchers are qualified at Master’s level and above, and have extensive experience of working as psychologists in the industry. We are looking for graduates in every discipline of psychology: theoretical and applied psychology; forensic psychology; clinical psychology; psychotherapy; mental health; cognitive psychology; behavioural psychology; research and much more.

We need writers who can find and use clinical and research information effectively, write clearly and concisely, and ultimately provide model answers which help others meet the precise academic standards you have already achieved yourself. Knowledge of SPPS and access to this is preferred, but not essential. As an Academic Knowledge researcher, you gain the status of being a writer with the support of a team that mediates between you and the customer at every stage of the writing process.

To be eligible to apply for this vacancy you must have:

  1. A PhD or equivalent
  2. Excellent written English skills
