The Department of Psychology seeks to appoint a highly motivated (social/environmental) psychologist to work as a full-time Research Associate. The post-holder will support a new collaborative research project with Bath and North-East Somerset Council exploring the psychological dimensions of the upcoming implementation of the Clean Air (charging) Zone (CAZ) in Bath city centre. The post-holder will co-design and lead research that draws upon theoretical understandings from social and cognitive psychology to explore how best to implement the scheme so as to encourage residents and visitors in Bath to view improved air quality as a shared moral responsibility. This will include being involved in the supervision of PhD students and Research Assistants who will also be employed on the project. In addition, the Research Associate will lead on recruitment of participants, data analysis, data management, report writing, presentations, and the design of future research bids.

This is a 6-month, fixed-term post. We seek an appointee who is able to start as soon as possible, ideally by the end of August (although this may be negotiable). Informal enquiries about the post can be made via email to Dr Tim Kurz (t.kurz@bath.ac.uk).
