The University of Warwick has an exciting opportunity for a full-time Post-doctoral Research Fellow as part of the research grant ‘The Ape and the First Word’ funded by UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellowship awarded to Dr Adriano R. Lameira at the University of Warwick.
The successful candidate will be based full-time for 24 months at the ApeTank in the Department of Psychology at the University of Warwick, England which is one of the UK’s leading research institutions.
We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
Are you a committed Post-doctoral Research Fellow with expertise with one or more of the following areas?
We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with experience in (1). Applicants with this level of experience will undertake zoo-based experimental work with great apes (US and UK).
For candidates with a background in (2), it is required that the candidate has had experience collecting primary data.
For candidates with a background in (3), first-hand data collection is beneficial but not mandatory, in which case, however, there should be demonstrable experience working with linguistic databases.
For candidates with experience in (2) and (3), the project will primarily entail great ape data analyses. However, there is a possibility of planning experimental zoo-based work for candidates in (2).
The successful candidate will be prepared to begin as soon as possible.
For further information regarding the skills required for this role please see the personal specification section of the attached job description.
If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure. Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure.
