The Centre of Excellence in Responsible Gaming (CERG) at the University of Gibraltar is seeking to recruit the following positions:

• CERG Associate Researcher
• CERG Researcher
• CERG Researcher/Senior Researcher in Neuropsychology

Applicants are expected to have research interests in gambling behaviour, which may include studying the etiology of problematic gambling and gambling disorder, understanding the mechanisms of gambling-related risks and harm, developing assessment tools to measure individual, familial or societal harm related to gambling, developing and evaluating interventions that might reduce harm related to these behaviours.

Further information on each position can be found on the position description. Research interest and experience in other technology-related problem behaviours (e.g., problematic video game use) could be an advantage. The researcher and senior researcher positions are open to individuals with a PhD who have a strong track record of research in this topic area, as evidenced by scholarly work and external funding. The associate researcher position is open to individuals with a PhD or for those whose PhD defence date precedes the starting date of this position (1st January 2022).

The successful candidate will become a key member of the CERG and will be expected to participate in and lead both independent and collaborative research programs focusing on the study of gambling-related harm. We are seeking a self-driven researcher with exceptional potential. The successful candidate must be able to work effectively with multi-disciplinary teams and diverse populations.

The advertised positions are full-time positions for a fixed term of two years, with a possibility of renewal. The successful applicant is expected to start the position as early as possible, but no later than the 1st January 2022.
