Would you kindly distribute to the list?
we would like to hear from those with background in Psychology or cognate disciplines (such as  computer science, cognitive neuroscience...)

As part of the continued development of the School of Psychology at the University of Aberdeen, applications are invited from candidates who have a track record of outstanding independent research, as evidenced by high quality publications in leading academic journals and have interests which extend the School's existing research strengths.

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 upon 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.  To achieve this goal, we plan to expand the research techniques and approaches used within the School, particularly to encompass data science, machine learning, deep learning and computational modelling to advance psychological research.  This expansion of research techniques will also lead to the development of new initiatives in data science and artificial intelligence.  Candidates who can contribute to this future direction of the School are strongly encouraged to apply.

Salaries will be at the appropriate point on the Grade 7/8 scale (£42,149 - £60,002 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 (a.sahraie at abdn.ac.uk<mailto:a.sahraie at abdn.ac.uk>) or Professor Jie Sui, Chair of Search Committee (jie.sui at abdn.ac.uk<mailto:jie.sui at abdn.ac.uk>). Please do not email CVs or applications to Professors Sahraie or Sui and apply online for this position https://www.abdnjobs.co.uk/vacancy/lecturer-senior-lecturer-458393.html
