Vacancy Description School of Psychology & Neuroscience, Salary: £40,792 - £50,132 per annum, Fixed Term: 3 years, Start: As soon as possible

We are seeking to appoint a lecturer in the area of Origins of Mind (see: https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/psychology/research/origins/) in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of St Andrews. This is a fixed-term, full-time appointment for 3 years with a start date as soon as possible. Candidates should hold a PhD in a cognate discipline, have specialist knowledge in the area of Origins of Mind and the ability to teach and supervise research projects in Evolutionary and Comparative Psychology. We are particularly interested in recruiting an individual with the ability to enhance the group’s research base by adding a new model system or additional methodologies and approaches. The successful candidate will be expected to teach at both undergraduate and masters levels, supervise and examine dissertations and projects in her/his specialist area and (co-supervise) doctoral theses.


The School of Psychology & Neuroscience comprises 40 academic staff, with wide ranging research interests. The School supports research in ways that ensure that all academic staff have both the time and the facilities to develop their own work. As a result of this support, all academic staff are actively involved in research and the School is successful in gaining external research grants from diverse sources, including research councils, charity, and industry.


The strategy of the School has been to build up strong research groups whose members support and collaborate with each other. Our research covers a very broad remit, from cellular neuroscience to crowd behavior in India. We have 4 broad groupings: Cellular and Developmental Neuroscience (CDN), Perception Cognition and Action (PCA), Origins of Mind (OoM) and Social and Group Processes (SGP).


Further information and informal enquiries may be directed to Professor Josep Call, email: jc276@st-andrews.ac.uk or Dr Amanda Seed, email: ams18@st-andrews.ac.uk.


The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall). More details can be found at http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/.
