In our School of Psychology at Surrey, we are committed to basic and applied research for the benefit of society through our enterprising and forward-thinking spirit as well as research-led teaching. We have a strong track record of innovation in Psychology, from discoveries in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, to establishing novel programmes in Environmental Psychology and Clinical Doctorates to the shaping of cross-European approaches to food labelling. The Brain and Behaviour section includes pioneering research in neuromodulation in typical and atypical populations, development of biomarkers, and the gut-brain axis, and is supported by the Faculty Research and Innovation Team.

The future of Psychology at Surrey is supported by ongoing investment across our people and infrastructure; for example, we recently opened our 6-room extended reality (XRL) simulation space to allow exciting possibilities for novel research (including mobile tES/EEG/fNIRS) in cognitive neuroscience and other areas, and two observation suites, as well as an ambition to build OPM-MEG Lab in partnership with the School of Biosciences and the School of Mechanical Engineering Sciences.

We work collaboratively at the University level to embrace the broader themes of:

  • One Health-One Medicine.
  • People-Centred AI.
  • Healthy Aging and Supporting Long-term Conditions.
  • Urban Living, Sustainability.

Our strong connections with the BPS, industry, charities, and NHS enrich the curriculum and make a significant contribution to the School’s research and the high rates of employment for Surrey’s Psychology graduates.

This post presents an opportunity for an exceptional cognitive neuroscientist with a commitment to fostering a research and learning community that is as collegial and inclusive as it is innovative.

As such we are looking for;

  • A track record of high-quality research in the area of human neuroimaging, with a focus on MEG/MRI-based methods that complement and extend our existing specialisms in cognitive neuroscience and enable enhanced broad-spectrum psychology research. This post is also in line with the faculty’s strategic plan for creating a digital imaging hub.
  • A highly motivated individual with a creative and collegiate approach to Psychology who is committed to both research and teaching. 

We welcome applications from people working in all areas of psychology but would be particularly interested in people whose work focuses on topics related to more complex cognitive processes and emotions.

We actively encourage national and international applicants to move to Surrey and applications from under-represented groups. Where visa/CoS is required, we will partner with you through the sponsorship process along with providing an attractive relocation package.

With your application, please attach a full CV along and a cover letter containing details of your five-year research plan. You are welcome to contact the Head of School, Prof Roi Cohen Kadosh ( ) if you would like to discuss your candidacy or the role in more depth.
