The Role and Department
A 18-month fixed-term Research Assistant (RA) position is available 5 hours per week in the Department of Psychology at Durham University. The successful candidate will join the research project “TIRED: Tiredness in Infancy and Relationships to Effective Distribution of attention” Project led by Dr Samuel Forbes, and funded by the British Academy / Leverhulme Trust. The project focuses on expanding our understanding of the role of tiredness in infancy and the relationships to attention, and developing new methods and questionnaires to help do this, using novel eye-tracking and pupillometry methods.
The Project Team: The research assistant will join a vibrant research group in the field of infant development, including 3 PhD students and will also have the opportunity to meet and network with our large array of national and international network of collaborators.
Expectations: The successful applicant will be expected to carry out day-to-day responsibilities running of the project, including: submitting ethics applications, recruiting infants, meeting collaborators, and learning about testing and analysing infant data with supervision. They will need to interact with various stakeholder groups (e.g. researchers, infants parents, collaborators). The work will be conducted using online methods (e.g. video conferencing), and face-to-face work in Durham University. The successful applicant will be expected to actively engage with the activities of the Department of Psychology. Standard RA responsibilities and specific requirements are listed in more detail below.
