The School of Psychology holds a Gold Athena SWAN award that recognises the work that it has done in supporting gender equality. The School of Psychology is seeking to appoint a lecturer to undertake research in the area of experimental social psychology.
The School has a very active research group in the area of social psychology and is home to the Centre for Identity and Intergroup relations, led by Professor Rhiannon Turner www.qub.ac.uk/research-centres/ciir. The Centre is multidisciplinary, involving collaborations with academics from the disciplines of anthropology, architecture, education, and politics amongst others, multi-methodological, conducting both basic and applied research using a variety of different methodologies (e.g., experimental, survey, interview and ethnographic research, affective computing and social signal processing), and multinational, with collaborators and projects across Europe, North and South America, and Australia. We have two bespoke laboratories: the Identity and Intergroup Relations Laboratory that contains cubicles with computers for experiments, plus an area for interviews and interactive research, and the Social Interactions Laboratory that incorporates hardware and software to observe and collect data from a variety of modalities simultaneously during social interactions, and to run virtual reality experiments.
We are seeking to appoint a lecturer who will contribute to our already strong research profile in the area of experimental social psychology and to our teaching portfolio.
