(Assistant Professor equivalent)

Grade 7:  £29,704 - £35,469 p.a.

We invite applications for a Lectureship (Assistant Professor  
equivalent) in the School of Psychology at Bangor University. The  
position carries a permanent contract, subject to a 3 year  
probationary review. With this appointment, we specifically aim to  
strengthen the School’s research programme in MRI neuroimaging. We  
encourage applications from researchers working with neuroimaging  
methods in any area of inquiry.

The School has an outstanding record of teaching (ranked “Excellent”  
for Teaching Quality) and research (7th of 76 UK Schools in the 2008  
“Research Power” table, a combined metric of research quality and  
quantity). Our academics benefit from an excellent research  
environment, which includes: low teaching loads; numerous journal  
clubs and technical groups; School-funded PhD studentships prioritised  
for new staff; ample space for laboratories; MRI-guided TMS; several  
EEG labs; close links with the local NHS Trust that support specialist  
neurological and psychiatric patient panels; an ESRC-funded  
Bilingualism Centre; and the £5M Bangor-led Wales Institute of  
Cognitive Neuroscience that links researchers in Cardiff and Swansea.  
The School also benefits from its place in the College of Health and  
Behavioural Sciences, which includes excellent international research  
in areas such as motivation, exercise physiology, perceptual/motor  
performance, and clinical trials methodology.

Our neuroimaging capacity is centred on a research-dedicated 3T  
Philips MRI scanner, housed within the School of Psychology. This  
facility is supported by a School-funded MR physicist and image  
analyst. Our neuroimaging research group, comprising >20 staff,  
postdocs, and PhD students, meets weekly to review recent literature  
and to discuss proposed projects and results. The group includes  
specialists in: patient studies and lesion reconstruction; high-level  
vision; working memory; attention; ageing; eye movements;  
neuropsychiatry; and spectroscopy. The School operates a generous  
access policy for the scanner, aimed at facilitating new projects for  
the benefit of publications and grant applications.

Bangor is located in scenic North Wales, featuring stunning mountain  
and coastal landscapes, a clean and peaceful environment, and ready  
access to Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, and London.
