Queen Mary, University of London is one of the largest colleges in the University of London and among the UK's leading research-focused universities. We have made a strategic commitment to world-class research and teaching, and in recognition of our excellence in these areas, we will join the Russell Group of leading UK universities in August. Following the RAE 2008, we were ranked 11th in the UK for the quality of our research by The Guardian and have ambitions to improve on this in the future. As part of this strategy, the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences is embarking on a five-year programme of recruitment to invest in the acknowledged strengths of the School and to strengthen its areas of internationally competitive activity. The School’s work extends from chemistry, through all aspects of biology to psychology. We have strong links with other Schools within the Faculty of Science and Engineering as well as with Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD). We are looking to recruit ambitious and outstanding scientists, who are able to further enhance our recognised strengths, in positions at all levels, in all four divisions of the School. Internationally competitive start-up funds are available for all levels of appointment to ensure that research programmes are well-established.
We are seeking to recruit up to eight posts at lecturer/senior lecturer/reader level. Psychology at Queen Mary is relatively new but we have developed a strong reputation in:
• Experimental psychology
• Biological psychology
• Comparative cognition
We will consider applicants from any area of psychology but expertise in one or more of the following areas might be an advantage: developmental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, cultural evolution, evolutionary/comparative psychology, computational psychology, cognitive psychology, psychophysics, personality / individual differences.
Successful applicants will have a proven ability to conduct world-class research; the ability to maintain an internationally competitive research group and to secure the funding to support this research activity. Applicants must have the ability to teach in relevant areas. We will also be happy to consider applications from people with their own funding who wish to explore proleptic positions in the School.
The posts are full time and permanent starting in January 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter. The salary will be in accordance with the appointment level, which is identified on the relevant job profile, subject to experience and qualifications. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, childcare vouchers scheme, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
The School is committed to Athena SWAN principles to promote women in science and we encourage applications from women.
