Brunel University London is a world-class university based in Uxbridge, West London. As one of the departments within the College of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, the Department of Life Sciences undertakes high quality undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and scientific research across the disciplines of Biosciences, Environmental Science, Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences, and Psychology. With over 50 psychologists based within the College and situated on a pleasant campus in greater London, we are a highly committed and forward-thinking academic community, proud of our world-leading research, our diversity and the student experience we provide.

With around 740 undergraduates and 120 postgraduates, the Division of Psychology, delivers an UG course with work placement in Psychology and Psychology and Sport (Sport, Health and Exercise), and a suite of MSc Programmes. An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Division of Psychology to recruit a highly motivated academic to support the research strength and teaching capacity in the area of applied cognitive neuroscience. The successful candidate will have a PhD in a relevant discipline, an established research profile, and experience of supervising research students, tutorials and practicals. 

The post holder will also contribute to strengthening our research profile as we move towards the next Research Excellence Framework exercise. The post fits well with the College research strategy which involves the establishment, development and strengthening of College Research Centres, of which the Centre Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) is one. The CCN, with members drawn from across the College of Life Sciences and Led by Professor Veena Kumari, aims to bring together researchers in psychology, sports science, health sciences and other areas who study cross-disciplinary perspectives of neuroscience. The four main strands within the CCN are: (1) cognitive neuroscience, (2) clinical and forensic neuroscience, (3) cognitive psychopharmacology and addiction, and (4) rehabilitation and plasticity. Applicants with a research profile within applied and/or clinical populations would be particularly welcome. 

We are proud of the exceptional development structure for early career academics at Brunel University London. The appointment to Lecturer will be subject to a two-year probationary period (with associated reduction in teaching duties) followed by a two-year development period. Subject to meeting probationary and development targets, the post holder may apply for the position at the Senior Lecturer level.

We work hard to provide a supportive and positive environment and the Department of Life Sciences has been awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze Award. We are also a Disability Confident employer. The diversity of our staff adds greatly to this inclusive ethos, and we particularly welcome applications from women and under-represented groups.

Closing date for applications: Friday 1st January 2021
