The School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham is embarking on a phase of major recruitment as a result of outstanding performance in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) and major investment provided to the School by the University. The School will be moving to new accommodation in the form of a fully refurbished, purpose-designed space and a new-build Centre for Human Brain Health that will house our new MRI and MEG facilities, sleep lab, and the newly appointed Chair in Translational Neuroscience.

We wish to strengthen our staffing complement to accomplish out ambitious research and teaching goals by making new faculty appointments. We are particularly keen to recruit in the area of lifespan development. Additionally, we would welcome colleagues who bring new methodological approaches including computational neuroscience, genetics, MEG, MRI, or qualitative methods. These appointments are intended to build on our strengths in cognitive neuroscience, social cognition, and neurodevelopmental disorders, and our ambition to translate that science into applications for the betterment of society.

We seek applications from junior members of staff, beginning their careers, and from established academics. Exceptional senior candidates may be considered for the conferment of the title of Reader.

The School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham is one of the largest and most successful in the UK, currently ranked in the top 5 Schools in the country (REF 2014). The University of Birmingham is an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from currently under-represented groups. The School of Psychology has a Bronze Athena SWAN award. It strives to maintain a flexible and supportive environment that enables its staff to flourish.
