Bournemouth University’s vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.

Over the past five years Psychology has undergone a period of rapid expansion resulting in a vibrant research and learning culture. The department has four research groups: Behavioural Change (including Cyberpsychology and Forensic Psychology subgroups); Face Processing; Visual Cognition; and Social Cognitive Clinical and Affective Neuroscience. Facilities supporting our teaching and research include mobile and static eye tracking, virtual environments, TMS, TDCS, an EEG laboratory as well as access to fMRI through a close collaboration with Poole Hospital.

We are keen to receive applicants in the field of Forensic Psychology to join our growing forensic psychology team. Ideally the person would be HPCP registered with experience in practice, though this is not essential.

Further, we are keen to receive applications from candidates who conduct research in social media and cyberpsychology. The successful applicant should have experience with both qualitative and quantitative methods. Further, experience in behaviour change using social media would be an advantage in order to collaborate with our behaviour change research group.

Finally, on applications, please identify someone within the Department (and across the University) that you feel you can collaborate with for your research.

You will be qualified to Doctoral level or be able to demonstrate the ability to create and disseminate knowledge at an equivalent level and the capability to convert this knowledge into a doctorate in a maximum of 3-5 years from date of appointment. You will be research active and committed to a culture of academic excellence and continuous improvement.
