Job Description

Research in the School of Psychology falls broadly into three themes: (1) Perception & Attention, (2) Cognition, and (3) Social Cognition.  Although each staff member is assigned to a single theme, there is extensive collaboration and overlap of interests within the School.  The School houses state-of-the-art facilities to support world-leading research across these three themes, including extensive eye tracking facilities (both lab-based and mobile), EEG systems, psychophysics laboratories and motion tracking facilities.

We have a particular research expertise on the perceptual, cognitive and social dimensions of human behaviour, drawing on research across the three themes.  We are looking to build on our existing strengths in this domain, with a goal to model mechanisms of human interaction through the application of behavioural science, artificial intelligence and neuroscience techniques.  We welcome applicants with expertise that can extend and enhance our research portfolio, including, but not limited to the use of data science techniques such as machine learning, deep learning and computational modelling to advance psychological research.

Salaries will be at the appropriate point on the Grade 7 scale (£42,149 – £50,296 per annum, pro rata), with placement according to qualifications and experience.

Should you wish to make an informal enquiry, please contact Professor Arash Sahraie, Head of School () or Dr Clare Sutherland, Chair of Search Committee (). Please do not email CVs or applications to Professors Sahraie or Dr Sutherland and apply online for this position www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs.
