We invite applications for the above appointment in the School of Psychology.

We are a highly renowned research-driven School with a sustained track record of excellence in research, teaching and impact. The appointee will have an appropriate early-career track record in research and teaching in psychology and will conduct cutting-edge research in any area congruent with our existing strengths. We are particularly interested in applicants working at the translational boundaries between psychology, neuroscience, and well-being including rehabilitation, and also working in applied settings to meet societal challenges across the lifespan. Teaching requirements of this post are light by UK standards and will be expected to be closely related to the appointee’s research specialism. The appointment is permanent, subject to successful probation.

Bangor's Psychology department is one of the largest and oldest Psychology Departments in the UK.

The University is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, situated on the north Wales coast between the mountains of Snowdonia and the sea, making it one of the most attractive university cities in the UK. Bangor University is proud of its Welsh heritage, yet it is also renowned for its approach to internationalisation and is ranked as one of the 100 most international universities in the world by the Times Higher Education.
