Are you passionate about furthering your research career in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

Are you an enthusiastic teacher, committed to delivering a first class learning and teaching experience with a demonstrated ability to teach effectively at undergraduate and postgraduate level?

The School is seeking candidates whose research interests map onto the School's research areas of critical mass (signified by papers, grant income and impact) within the areas of Health and Social Psychology, Cognition and Neuroscience, and Appetite and Obesity.

One post will be linked to the Head of School, Professor Jason Halford, who has interests in i) appetite control in obesity in the context of treatment, ii) stigma and weight bias, iii) psychological determinants of treatment outcome, iv) food choice, labelling and marketing, and v) food insecurity, mental health and inequalities.

Applicants will have a strong track record in developing and leading cutting-edge research in an applied field of psychology which complements the existing expertise at the School. This should be evidenced by 3 and 4* REF returnable papers. You will be committed to providing a first class learning and teaching experience. You will also be expected to provide leadership in our internal administrative structures to ensure the School delivers an excellent environment for staff and students.

You will have a PhD in a relevant field, along with postgraduate experience in psychology and evidence of an ability to teach successfully and effectively. You will also have a successful record of attracting external research funding.
