Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience

University of Bath - Psychology

The Department of Psychology at the University of Bath is completing a significant expansion. The Department occupies a new purpose-built five storey building, containing two floors of laboratories, including state-of-the-art EEG/ERP, virtual reality, observation, psychobiology, eye-tracking, pain, cross-modal and computerised testing labs. As part of our expansion, one post is available in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Professorial level.

The professorial appointment will help to expand the capacity of the Department within any or all of the Department’s major sub-disciplines – clinical, cognitive, developmental, health, and social – but to offer significant methodological expertise in cognitive neuroscience, such as EEG/ERP techniques.  Applications for this post are welcomed from established Professors, as well as Readers or Senior Lecturers who can demonstrate a significant upward trajectory. Chairs are expected to be internationally leading in their field of expertise. All applicants are expected to have an excellent track record of publications, research grant acquisition, and teaching experience, commensurate to their stage of career.

The Department has an established tradition of ‘theoretically informed applied psychology’ and we are seeking applicants with demonstrable research impact. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise, staff were returned in different units of assessment, the largest of which (Allied Health Professions) obtained the highest REF2014 rating across the whole University. The University was ranked 12th overall in the UK in REF2014. The Department was placed second in the country in The Complete University Guide, The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016. More information about the Department can be found at
