Faculty Position (Research and Teaching)

The Department of Psychology at Bangor University seeks to make a permanent, full-time appointment of a research-active Lecturer (Grade 7 Teaching & Research; equivalent to research-track Assistant Professor). Whilst we welcome applications from all areas of Psychology/Neuroscience, we particularly encourage applications from candidates with clinically focused research expertise, including translational neuroscience (neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative and acquired disorders).

The School has a rich history of internationally-renowned research, steering theoretical advancement in cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience, as well as applied research on wellbeing, health, and resilience. The appointed person will sit within the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience or the Institute of Wellbeing Research and will be expected build upon the excellence in research and teaching that already exists. Our research is supported by state-of-the-art neuroscience facilities, including a recently upgraded, in-house, research-dedicated Phillips 3T MRI, multiple eye-tracking labs; high-density EEG systems, MRI-guided stimulation techniques including TMS and tDCS, and access to computational resources for modelling approaches, as well as specialised participant panels including neurological and dyslexia panels.

We seek an individual with an emergent international profile of scholarly activity; they should be able to demonstrate a record of high-quality publications in peer-reviewed journals, evidence of successful grant capture and / or the potential to attract research and enterprise funding. The candidate should have a desire to promote the School’s activity through outreach and public engagement activity. Candidates should ideally possess relevant teaching qualifications or experience, or be willing to complete these in the first years of the appointment.

The Closing Date for applications is 13/08/2023. The successful candidate will be expected to commence 09/10/2023 (or as soon as possible thereafter).

For inquiries, interest individuals are welcome to have a confidential conversation with the Head of School, Professor Dave Richardson (d.richardson@bangor.ac.uk) and / or Professor Manon Jones, Director of Research (manon.jones@bangor.ac.uk).
