Applications are invited for an Associate Professorship of Experimental Psychology based at the Department of Experimental Psychology, Oxford, with effect from 1 September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. The post is in association with a Tutorial Fellowship at St Edmund Hall. The Associate Professor will join a dynamic and collaborative Department whose aim is to conduct world-leading experimental research to understand the psychological and neural mechanisms relevant to human behaviour and to translate these findings into evidence-based public benefits and mental health and wellbeing, education, industry, and policy.

The main duties of this post will be to conduct an independent research programme in your chosen area of behavioural neuroscience and to contribute, in your area of expertise, to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in the Department through lectures and practical classes, and to college teaching and tutorials.

You should have a higher degree (PhD/DPhil) in psychology, neuroscience or a closely related discipline; an ability to contribute to teaching and training of undergraduate and graduate students; a strong and developing track record of research in any area of behavioural neuroscience; current research funding or an independent research track record likely to attract competitive research grant funding. You will also be expected to participate in the administration of St Edmund Hall and the Department of Experimental Psychology.

An attractive financial package is offered to the successful applicant, including a College housing allowance (if applicable) of 8,300 p.a., plus other College benefits. An allowance of 2,655 p.a. would be made upon award of the title of Full Professor.
