Psychology is seeking to appoint a Research Assistant to work on an ESRC-funded project, under the direction of Dr Stephen Langton (Principal Investigator), exploring how visual attention is influenced when observers view natural, dynamic shifts of another person's eye-gaze. The successful candidate will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the project. They will be expected to prepare experimental materials, implement the planned experiments, recruit participants for the research and conduct preliminary analysis of the data.

Applicants should have an Honours Degree in Psychology, or a related discipline, and an interest in face/gaze processing. They should have excellent communication skills, experience in conducting quantitative research, and competence in statistical analysis techniques. Some experience with eye-tracking techniques, video-editing, image processing (e.g., Adobe Photoshop) and experiment-management software (e.g., EPrime) would be desirable, as would experience in managing a large-scale research project.

The position is full-time, fixed-term for 36 months with a proposed start date 1st November 2011. The maximum starting salary will be £23,660p.a., (Grade 6, Spine Point 22).

Informal enquiries to Dr Stephen Langton, telephone 01786 467659 or email srhl1 at stir.ac.uk<mailto:srhl1 at stir.ac.uk>.
