The School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln is enjoying an exciting period of expansion. An exciting opportunity has arisen within the School for a Senior Technician (Technical) to work within the technician team. This role's primary focus will be on programming to support both staff, research and independent projects at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. We would expect the applicant to have and to be able to demonstrate an extensive track record in high level programming either in a University or a commercial setting. We are looking for someone who can work with a game engine (Unity and Unreal) to make interactive desktop and VR environments and with 3D models, as well as having experience in programming in Python and Matlab. Familiarity with R, Java and C would be an advantage.

The School of Psychology has recently moved in to a new purpose build building with an extensive range of well-equipped dedicated research facilities including EEG, TMS, VR, Eye tracking (Tobii, Eyelink, DPI, Ober and VSG), Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound imaging, Sleep and Baby labs and resources to support comparative / animal-based research in the field. In addition to extensive new laboratory facilities, the School of Psychology has invested in a new 3D scanner which can take 3D pictures of faces and bodies which can then be morphed to alter different features.

Based at the heart of the beautiful historic city of Lincoln, you will join a friendly and thriving department with an outstanding reputation for student experience and rising reputation for excellence in research. The most recent Research Excellence Framework judged 90% of our research to be of international significance, with much of our work having outstanding levels of real-world impact. The University supports the progress and advancement of women in science and the School of Psychology was recently awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze award.
