The School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln seeks a Technician to support research and teaching in the School of Psychology. The post holder will be part of a team of psychology technicians working closely with academic staff in the School. 

The post will also involve liaising with University central ICT services, estates and other professional services staff. The technical team provides day to day support for use of specialised laboratory equipment including eye trackers, electrophysiological recording systems (including EEG) and transcranial doppler imaging. Other research in the School uses online questionnaire based systems (e.g. Qualtrics), video and audio recording systems. Software used in Psychology includes PsychoPy, ePrime, SPSS, R and Matlab. 

A psychology background and/or experience utilising the key software will be highly valued. The School moved into a purpose built building in 2017 and has a number of specialist labs including a TMS lab, Molecular Psychology Lab, Baby Lab and Sleep Lab. Psychology has in-house electrical and mechanical workshop facilities and experience of using similar facilities or a desire to develop skills would also be desirable, but is not strictly necessary.

Given the move to provision of blended learning, and online experimentation, experience with digital education, and translation of experiments to the online environment are also desirable. 

The School of Psychology recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and proactively works to make our School an inclusive environment. Please contact either the School Director of Research, Professor Amanda Roberts ( or the Academic Lab Director Dr Tessa Flack ( for further information. This post would be particularly well suited to a part time PhD student.
