Following several years of robust growth followed by strong staff recruitment, we are pleased to offer a fixed-term position for a psychology laboratory technician.

The School of Human Sciences is located across two campuses. The psychology laboratories are based on the Greenwich Maritime campus. The laboratory facilities are part of a significant investment in the School and part of a long-term plan to build internationally leading research and teaching in the Faculty.  As part of this investment, we are looking to appoint dynamic and engaged colleagues to help grow and develop the School. 

You will be joining a School and Faculty that is building a strong interdisciplinary and cross-professional approach to solving the grand challenges facing society. We are looking for colleagues who will have a commitment to maintaining and building the University’s excellence in teaching and learning, and who are keen to assist academic colleagues and students with teaching and research that has the potential for significant long-term academic and societal impact. 

We welcome applications from individuals with an interest in any area of psychology. The School has an active and growing research base. We performed well in REF2021, particularly with regard to the ‘research environment’. The University is currently rated TEF silver, reflecting our excellent teaching and learning, and we have realistic aspirations to achieve a TEF rating of ‘gold’ in any forthcoming assessment exercise. 

We are looking to recruit individuals with a strong and developing track record of supporting research who, at the same time, can demonstrate a commitment to the delivery of teaching excellence and innovation. We actively sustain and promote a collegiate atmosphere that is underpinned by equality, diversity, and inclusion. 

We aim to be an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community. Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Charlotte Jeavons (Head of School); email:
