The School of Psychology at Lincoln is looking for a part-time Psychology Technician to support our teaching and research activities. This is an exciting opportunity to join a rapidly expanding school.
The post is based on the Brayford campus of the University of Lincoln in the Sarah Swift Building. The School of Psychology has a thriving research environment and recruits about 300-350 students/year for it's undergraduate programmes.
The main responsibilities of the role include: working with academic staff, with other technical staff and with students to identify, set up and maintain equipment to run experiments in the labs; supporting practical classes and assignments; developing and managing equipment and space booking systems; demonstrating equipment and training staff or students; liaising with internal and external contacts.
We are looking for an individual who may already have experience of working in a psychology lab or similar environment, who are keen to develop new skills and willing to contribute to the growth of our School and to that of the team.
Many of the studies running in Psychology rely on specialised computer packages and languages to collect or analyse data (e.g. SPSS, Matlab, R, Python), so familiarity with similar programs and other data handling systems would be essential.
The technician team is an innovative and efficient team that is always looking to drive forward and to develop new technologies to aid research and to assist in teaching - there is a number of in-house developments ongoing and the role will include contributing to these as well as possibly suggesting their own.
Suitable candidates will be encouraged to register for a part-time PhD (fees paid).
This position does not fulfil the UK Visas & Immigration sponsorship criteria for Tier 2, therefore we can only accept applications from candidates who already have the right to work in UK.
We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
