The successful candidate will not only be an outstanding researcher with a solid track record of outstanding quality publications and successful grant capture, but also an inspirational teacher and a strong intellectual planner. The latter skill will be core to their leadership of our enthusiastic and energetic team as we work together to position our new BSc (Psychological and Behavioural Science) as a leading global degree that attracts the best students from across the UK and around the world.
