The Tizard Centre is pleased to be offering a PhD studentship, under the Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) model (see below for details).
The studentship is specifically related to the field of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). This would be suited to a student who is enthusiastic about behaviour analytic research and is an opportunity to work collaboratively with the ABA and Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) programme team at the Tizard Centre. Under the Graduate Teaching Assistant model, the successful applicant would be expected to contribute to our PG programmes in Applied Behaviour Analysis and Positive Behaviour Support. This might include teaching and marking on topics such as: ethical and professional practice in behaviour analysis; concepts and principles of behaviour analysis; behavioural observation, assessment and intervention approaches; and research methods, with a particular focus on single-case experimental design. It might also include individual or group supervision of practical coursework. The specific responsibilities allocated would be matched to the student's expertise, research interests and circumstances where possible and full support will be given. Applicants will need to provide evidence that they are board certified (BCBA) or meet the BACB's eligibility requirements to act as an instructor on our verified course sequences (eg. have completed a relevant MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis or Positive Behaviour Support).
The studentship offers an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to develop broader subject-specific academic experience alongside their research experience, which would be excellent preparation for a career in academia.
