Salary Range:

The School of Health and Society has an expanding Directorate of Psychology and Public Health and are seeking to appoint a permanent Lecturer specialising in social/media psychology and qualitative methods to contribute to our Undergraduate and Postgraduate Psychology provision.

The successful candidate will have access to a wide range of research facilities and will be supported with an appropriate research allowance. The Directorate has recently received £500,000 of investment to further develop our research facilities. Currently the Directorate has a range of psychological, physiological and neuroimaging equipment including functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) neuroimaging systems, EEG, and dedicated experimental testing suites, Biopac physiological recording systems, and three eye-trackers (for use in natural and laboratory environments). This recent investment will be used to create a new research facility, as well as fund the purchase of a new fNIRS system, a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) system, physiological monitoring equipment, and additional eye-tracking capabilities.

We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer who will be able to contribute to the research and the teaching of the Directorate with particular emphasis on the core areas of the undergraduate BPS syllabus, in particular social psychology and qualitative research methods. An ability to contribute to Media Psychology would be an advantage. In addition, you would also be expected to contribute to the teaching and supervision of MSc and PhD students.
