Applications are invited for a full-time Research Fellow position at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, to work with Dr Constanze Hesse on a project funded by the ESRC (project title: “The need for unpleasant touch: behavioural and physiological investigations into negative affective touch and how it can be used to shape interactions”). This project is part of a larger international project with collaborators in Germany and France and will be conducted in close association with all project partners.

It combines knowledge and methodology from the fields of haptic perception, action control, cognitive and biological psychology as well as physiology.
The project will provide an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to work in a productive, collaborative, and research-focused environment.
Salary will be at the appropriate point on the Grade 6, £35,333 - £36,386 per annum, and negotiable with placement according to qualifications and experience.
Informal enquiries should be made to Dr. Constanze Hesse, Senior Lecturer (email@example.com).
