We are looking for a part-time, fixed term research assistant until 31 January 2019 to work on the project ‘Transition from primary to secondary school in children with neurodevelopmental disorders’, which is funded by the Baily Thomas Charitable Trust. The successful candidate will have a degree in psychology with experience in research and familiarity with working with children with special educational needs.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.
We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas. ‘In the Complete University Guide 2018, Roehampton is the highest-ranked modern university in London. Modern, or new, universities are defined as those granted university status post-1992. Complete University Guide does not itself define modern universities and does not produce a separate league table in which these are ranked.’
The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of southwest London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working.
