Lecturer in Psychology (Forensic/Criminology)
University of Salford, School of Health and Society
United States

Our research theme is ‘Applied Psychology: Social, Physical and Technology Enabled Environments’. Our team is passionate about researching how people interact with their social, physical and technology-enabled environments across the lifespan. We also strive to deliver research which aspires ‘to make a difference’ to a variety of users whilst also contributing to original theoretical foundations of the discipline. 

Our track record includes partnerships with local authorities, policy-influencing organizations, companies and health-providers. Our research has attracted funding from EPSRC, ESRC, Technology Strategy Board, the Home Office and the Ministry of Defence. 

The successful candidate will have access to a wide range of research facilities and will be supported with an appropriate research allowance. The Directorate has recently received £500,000 of investment to further develop our research facilities. Currently the Directorate has a range of psychological, physiological and neuroimaging equipment including functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) neuroimaging systems, EEG, and dedicated experimental testing suites, Biopac physiological recording systems, and three eye-trackers (for use in natural and laboratory environments). This recent investment will be used to create a new research facility, as well as fund the purchase of a new fNIRS system, a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) system, physiological monitoring equipment, and additional eye-tracking capabilities.

The Directorate is also home to the ‘Autism and the Criminal Justice System’ hub which was co-founded by Dr Clare Allely (Reader in Forensic Psychology) and Dr Toni Wood (Lecturer in Criminology). The hub has research links with a number of organisations such as Greater Manchester Police; Cheshire Police; prisons in the North West of England and Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust. Many of the publications produced as part of the ‘Autism and the Criminal Justice System’ hub are in collaboration with colleagues from all over the world including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden and Scotland enhancing not only the national profile but the international profile of this hub based at the University of Salford.
