The University intends to make a number of new appointments in Psychology, 
tenable from July 2005 or such other date as may be arranged.  The 
appointments include at least two chairs as well as lectureships and senior 
lectureships or readerships. Some of these positions will contribute to a 
major university initiative in Brain Imaging. The other appointments will 
contribute to the further expansion of research within the Department and 
to the changing undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum.

Applicants seeking an appointment at lectureship level will have a Ph.D. in 
a relevant field and a strong track record of postdoctoral research.  Those 
seeking an appointment at Senior Lecturer level will also have record of 
substantial achievement and distinction at international level in 
research/teaching/administration, with a proven ability to attract research 
funding.  Applicants at Reader level must also be able to demonstrate 
international research excellence through high quality 
publications.  Applicants seeking an appointment as a Chair will, in 
addition, have an established international reputation and proven ability 
to provide research leadership.

University strategy foresees developments in the area of Brain Imaging in 
which the Psychology Department will play a major role, so applicants with 
experience in fMRI, MEG and other brain imaging techniques are invited to 
apply.  Applications are also invited from those with research interests in 
any core area of psychology as the Department wishes to complement and 
enhance its existing research strengths.

The Department has an outstanding record of success in both teaching and 
research. According to recent national assessment we rank among the 
top-rated UK Psychology Departments for research (i.e. we rate 5* on a 
scale of 1-5*) and have achieved the highest rating, "Excellent", for 
Teaching Quality.

For the Professorial positions salary will be within the professorial range 
and subject to negotiation.  Other appointments will be made at an 
appropriate level on academic staff grades.
