The posts are open to all areas of psychology, broadly defined, including: behaviour change, behavioural neuroscience, brain imaging, clinical psychology, cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, environmental psychology, forensic psychology, health psychology, human factors, mental health, perception and social psychology.
We are a large and diverse School, consistently ranked in the top 10 Psychology Schools in the UK (e.g., 10th in the Complete University Guide 2023; 6th in the Time Higher 2023; 7th in the Research Excellence Framework). We are long established, well resourced, with a highly regarded international reputation.
We hope there will be a good fit between your ambitions and the environment our school can provide, for fostering exciting new research, impact and teaching. We aim to complement and extend our research and impact strengths in directions aligned to national and international challenges (as identified by research funders, for example), enabling successful candidates to build, lead and sustain research groups and new collaborations, as well as providing engaging teaching and academic leadership. For example, candidates can consider how they might align with our research themes and our research centres or other areas of strength (see for example: HuFex, IROHMS, NMHRI, CUBRIC, CUCHDS, CAST and Understanding Risk).
For further details on the School and our other areas of international excellence and impact, see http://psych.cf.ac.uk/. We work from synapse to society, and have multiple collaborations with other disciplines (architecture, bioscience, computer science, engineering, geography, healthcare, medicine, physics, social science) and external partners (Welsh and UK governments, NHS, industry, charities).
We have a strong reputation for collegiality as well as teaching and research. We believe in creating an inclusive, innovative and supportive community. We support career development alongside work-life balance and family friendly practices. We aim to be an inclusive community where difference is encouraged, respected and valued. The University is committed to sustaining a positive working environment for all staff to flourish and achieve. We welcome applicants from currently under-represented groups and from individuals who wish to work part-time or full time.

Cardiff University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who have the ambition to create a University which seeks to fulfil our social, cultural and economic obligation to Cardiff, Wales, and the world. In supporting our employees to achieve a balance between their work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
