Julia Yates

I am programme leader for the MSc in Career Coaching and I teach on the MSc in Occupational Psychology and the MSc in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology. My areas of research interest are career decision making, the application of coaching approaches to career work and the role of appearance in career.

    I recently joined the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience as a Lecturer in Biochemistry. I graduated with a BSc (Hons) Biochemistry from Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria and an M. Tech Biochemistry from the Federal University of Technology, Yola, Nigeria before being awarded a Vice Chancellor’s Research Scholarship leading to a PhD Biomedical Sciences degree by the University of Ulster, Coleraine. I began my academic career in 1999 as a Lecturer in Integrated Sciences at the Federal College of Education, Yola, Nigeria and was appointed as a Lecturer in Biotechnology by the Federal University of Technology, Yola, Nigeria in 2006.  Following a successful completion of my PhD Biomedical Sciences at the University of Ulster, I joined the Diabetes Research Group at the University as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist.
