The Department of Psychology at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the role of Assistant Professor in Behavioural Science, with a focus on marketing and/or consumer behaviour. The successful applicants will join a growing group of social and organisational psychologists and behavioural scientists within the Department’s Quantitative Social Psychology group: https://www.durham.ac.uk/departments/academic/psychology/research/groups/quantitive/
Applicants must demonstrate research excellence in the field of behavioural science, with a focus on marketing and/or consumer behaviour. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research and teaching applies psychological principles to behaviour change interventions, behavioural insights, or implementation science. The ideal candidate will have a background in psychology, decision sciences, behavioural economics, business, social sciences, public health, public policy, or related areas.
The Department of Psychology is an internationally recognised centre of research excellence and interdisciplinarity across the breadth of psychological and behavioural science. The Department’s research groupings reflect our major areas of activity: Cognitive Neuroscience, Developmental Science, & Quantitative Social Psychology. Each group also leads a taught Masters programme, extending our research strengths into the next generation. In addition, the Department houses a number of University Research Centres which bring in staff from across the department, university, and region to focus on key research issues.
There is a vibrant research culture with a departmental weekly research seminar series, regular training opportunities and a commitment to open science. We pride ourselves on being a collegiate and welcoming department, committed to success for all who work here. This is illustrated by our Athena Swan Silver Award received in 2013, renewed in 2017 and 2022.
The University is investing heavily in the Department to support a growing undergraduate, taught postgraduate and research postgraduate community. Significant recent investment in staff and new research facilities will continue with planned development of new taught programmes, research centres and leading large scale interdisciplinary projects across the University and the region. The Department’s broad approach to the discipline places it in an excellent position to take advantage of emerging opportunities and challenges and our collegiate approach allows staff to work across research areas to provide novel solutions to global problems.
