Research Assistant in Psychology

Are you interested in conducting applied health psychological research which involves both quantitative and qualitative methods? Perhaps you want to pursue a PhD, but would like more research experience first? We have an exciting opportunity in the Department of Psychology for someone with a passion for health related research to build on these skills and support two projects funded by the White Rose Consortium and the British Academy. We are seeking candidates with a good honour’s degree in Psychology (or equivalent experience), and subject knowledge in Health Psychology. As this role involves assisting the Primary Investigator to manage the day-to-day activities of these research projects, you will also need experience of conducting your own research and be able to manage your time effectively. We are an impactful department with over 85% of our research classed as world-leading or internationally excellent in the last Research Excellence Framework. Our department is made up of a friendly, and vibrant community of academic staff, postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers. If you are passionate about Health Psychology and want to gain further experience in conducting mixed methods research and contributing to research outputs, then we would love to hear from you.

We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
