The School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln is enjoying an exciting period of expansion, and is seeking to further support and develop research in the school through the creation of Early Career Research Lectureships.
These are excellent opportunities for enthusiastic researchers to contribute to the development of research at Lincoln. Candidates should have a strong recent publication record of outputs suitable for submission to future Research Excellence Framework assessments, and a clear strategy for future external funding applications.
Applications from all research areas are welcome. However, we especially encourage applicants working in the areas of body image or body ideals in eating disorders or human mate selection, or developmental psychology (including autism). This is a chance to expand your research experience and to work collaboratively with senior researchers within the school to support existing and develop new research programmes. You will be expected to publish peer reviewed journal articles and submit funding applications with the aim of establishing yourselves as independent researchers. In addition, it is expected that the appointees will be willing to contribute to supervision of junior research staff and PhD students as well as making small scale contributions to undergraduate and post-graduate teaching within the school including supervision of student research projects.
The School of Psychology has just moved in to a new purpose build building with an extensive range of well equipped dedicated research facilities including EEG, TMS, Eye tracking (Tobii, Eyelink, DPI, Ober and VSG), Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound imaging, Sleep and Baby labs and resources to support comparative / animal based research in the field. In addition to extensive new laboratory facilities, the School of Psychology has invested in a new 3D scanner which can take 3D pictures of faces and bodies which can then be morphed to alter different features.
Based at the heart of the beautiful historic city of Lincoln, you will join a friendly and thriving department with an outstanding reputation for student experience and rising reputation for excellence in research. The most recent Research Excellence Framework judged 90% of our research to be of international significance, with much of our work having outstanding levels of real world impact. The University supports the progress and advancement of women in science and the School was recently awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze award.
