Brunel University London was established in 1966 and is a leading multidisciplinary research-intensive technology university delivering economic, social and cultural benefits.

The Department of Life Sciences undertakes high quality undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and scientific research across the disciplines of Biosciences, Environmental Sciences, Sport, Health & Exercise Sciences, and Psychology. With over 120 academics based on a pleasant campus, we are a highly committed and forward-thinking academic community, proud of our world-leading research, our diversity and the student experience we provide.
The Division of Psychology (www.brunel.ac.uk/psychology) delivers a portfolio of successful and popular degree programmes including a BSc Psychology, BSc Psychology (Sport, Health & Exercise), MSc Psychological Sciences (Conversion), MSc Cognitive & Clinical Neuroscience and MSc Psychology, Culture & Evolution.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit a highly motivated academic to build the research strengths of our Centre for Culture & Evolution (CCE) and our teaching capacity in areas such as social/cross-cultural psychology, evolutionary psychology, statistics and research methods.
The CCE (www.brunel.ac.uk/research/Centres/Culture-and-Evolution) brings together cross-cultural, evolutionary, developmental, personality, and social psychologists with relationship scientists and cultural evolution researchers to conduct pioneering research focused on revealing how our evolved human nature generates the diverse cultural practices and behaviours observed around the world. For this post, we are particularly interested in someone who could contribute to our Digital Living & Online Cultures theme, focusing on areas such as using evolutionary theory to understand digital communities, prosocial/antisocial behaviour online, group polarisation, information spread on social media, and historical change in music, art or technology (e.g. using experimental approaches and/or large-scale digital data).
The successful candidate will have completed, or be near completion of, their PhD in an appropriate area, have appropriate teaching experience in higher education, and an emerging research profile with publications suitable for submission to the next Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise.
Brunel has a strong track-record of securing research funding from EU and other international sources. Regardless of the long-term future for UK participation in Horizon Europe, Brunel will continue to ensure that staff have access to non-EU research funding, and we will continue to support our many bilateral collaborations within the EU and will remain an active member of YERUN.
We offer a generous annual leave package plus discretionary University closure days, excellent training and development opportunities as well as a great occupational pension scheme and a range of health-related support. The University is committed to a hybrid working approach.
Closing date for applications: Friday 17th March 2023 (Midnight)
