Research Fellow

University of Nottingham - Psychology

Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.

The project will investigate the developing ability to interpret natural and spontaneous signals in other people’s behaviour to infer their inner states. How does this ability develop across the lifespan and how does a neurodevelopmental disorder, such as autism, impact on development? Specifically, how does the quality of signal in behaviour vary from one person to another? Are some people effectively more difficult to interpret than others, particularly if they have autism?

Although this full-time post is for a fixed term of 6 months, the PI will assist the role holder extensively to secure external funding (e.g. an ESRC New Investigator Award) to try to extend the appointment for a number of years.

Applicants should have a degree and PhD in Psychology, should be experienced in experimental programming, video editing and should be proficient in using SPSS. The role will involve collecting data from child participants as well as participants with special needs.
