Lecturer in Psychology (2 posts)
REF: ATR1682

Salary on appointment will be £46,974 per annum, dependent on skills and experience, with an annual increment up to £54,395 per annum.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for two new Lecturers to join the School of Psychology. The posts will augment our current excellence in research and take an active role in the delivery of research-led teaching.

In REF 2021, 96% of our research in Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience was recognised as world-leading or internationally excellent, with a 100% 4* world leading research environment. The School has outstanding laboratory equipment and facilities including a Siemens Prisma 3T MRI scanner in the UEA Wellcome-Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (UWWBIC).

You will join a network of researchers within the School of Psychology, with clinical colleagues in the School of Medicine and others across the University and the wider Norwich Research Park, consistent with the multidisciplinary ethos at UEA. You will have the opportunity to develop your research profile which should compliment the existing research strengths, producing high quality proposals to secure external research funding, disseminate finding through academic publications and external impact.

Teaching is a key part of this role and as such you will be expected to plan, teach and assess at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and supervise PhD students.

We are seeking candidates specialising in any area of Psychology who will expand and enhance our existing research strengths. Those working in Social Psychology, Cognitive and/or Social Development, Cognitive Neuroscience, Social Neuroscience, or Developmental Neuroscience would complement the School’s approach to psychological science and would be especially welcome.

You must have a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area or equivalent experience, with experience of undergraduate teaching and student assessment. A strong publication record is also essential, and the ability to supervise PhD students would be advantageous.

These full-time posts are available from 1 August 2024 on an indefinite basis.
